3.93/5 rDev +5.6%
Poured in a pint glass at Estelle's in Boston.
Appearance: This beer poured a small head that reduced to a thin layer. It is a copper color with great clarity and bubbles coming up through the glass. Crazy lacing on the glass as the beer was drank.
Smell: malty, bready, and fruity
Taste: All of the above blended well together. Nice maltiness and mild bitterness to this beer.
Mouthfeel: Creamy smooth, a little chewy, medium bodied, low carbonation, and extremely drinkable.
Overall: Very nice ESB. Will have more.

3.8/5 rDev +2.2%
From a 355 ml bottle (best before June 22, 2013) into a tulip.
A-A normal pour produces a clear, red-tinted amber brew. The light-tan head drops quickly and leaves a touch of lacing on the glass.
S-I smell mildly citrusy hops fighting against some toasted pale malts. The nose is pretty gentle.
T-The taste is like the smell with slightly sharp and floral hops mostly outweighing the pale, dry malts. There is some malty sweetness up front, but for an ESB, this one leans toward the citrusy/hoppy side of things.
M-The feel is medium body with a decently aggressive carbonation. There is a touch of dank oiliness, too.
O-This is a pretty middle-of-the-road brew. I found the hops a little too strong for the style, which also affected the feel, but the flavor was decent and drinkability was good. This beer is pretty ubiquitous around my neck of the woods, and while there are better choices, I would drink this again.

12 oz bottle poured into a tumbler
A- Clear amber, with a fairly thin off white head. Not much lacing.
S- Caramel malt, with a hint of fruitiness and slight floral background.
T- Caramel and fruity sweet. A mellow hop finish to balance out.
M- Medium-light body, very well balanced with a semi-dry finish.
O- This is very very well balanced. Just enough hop to even out with the malt. Refreshing as well.
