Appearance is copper with a finger of head that had no retention. There is a mild herbal nose to this offering. There is a classic malty flavor upfront with a distinct transition to dry hoppiness on the finish. This is an excellent example of an ESB.

love this one. smells well balanced but no descript, hints of english malts and a gentle sweetness. flavor has a lot of interesting subtleties, complex malts but maintains a light and refreshing mouthfeel. its crisp and clear and easy drinking. an excellent session beer, and just enough abv to warm you up on a cold day. this is one of my favorite left hand brews i have tried.

A: Pours a dark copper color with a small head and some lacing.

S: Aroma of pine and citrus with mild roasted malt, fresh grain and bit of herbs.

T: Solid flavor of roasted malt with a trace of sweetness, some grain and herbs. There is a nice bitterness and a dry finish.

F: Medium body, smooth and creamy. Very good balance.

O: Very easy drinker, good for more than a few. Very enjoyable ESB. Check it out.
