This beer poured into a globe glass with a nice thick and foamy light tan head. It settled to a very nice reddish amber color with a thin tan head. The smell is grassy with lightly toasted malts. The taste is nice, it tasted like a cross between a pale ale and an amber ale. The malts come through first with a lightly toasted flavor. The finish is malty with a very slight hop bitterness. It is medium bodied as it should be. A very well done ESB.

Served in a Lagunitas mason jar.

The British Springsteen...? Anyway, this stuff pours a clear brass topped by a finger of off-white foam. The nose comprises barley, earthy greens, light grass, rather light tobacco, and mild honey-laden biscuit. The taste brings in more of the same, the hops and malts (real specific, amiright?) almost cancelling each other out at many junctures. The body is a light medium, with a light moderate carbonation and a fluid feel. Overall, an okay bitter, nothing special, but something I couldn't really turn down with any zeal.
