look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

Hazy reddish yellow with a small white head. Looks a little flat, I wonder if this one is a little too old. No lacing.

Biscuity grany malts, a little honey sweetness, the slighest touch of citrusy hops (again, may have faded due to age). Some caramel malt too.

Very much follows the nose with the biscuity and caramel malts with just a light amount of citrusy hops and bitterness to balance it out. Pretty basic, but nice.

Moderate body with a fairly light carbonation. Could use a bit more carbonation I think, but pretty refreshing.

Bottle date is about 7 months old, so I'd like to try this again fresher, to maybe pick up a bit more of the hops. But regardless, it's a very nice, super refreshing ESB that goes down easy but has a good amount of complexity and is really tasty.
