I had a review. It was pretty good. Somehow it did not upload despite hitting "Review". The beer is amber and has a white head. Smells mildly of malt. Tastes about the same with a nutty quality to the finish. Nice body weight and feel. Decent but nothing exciting.

8/10 review....Pours amber medium dark, light layer of white. Light malty nose, caramel hints. Toffee sweet, quite toasty. Slight spices in there too. Very light carbonation and a mild hop burn. Starts strong, bitter a little too pushy.

Great, easy to drink, crisp. Bitter, but not overly so. Great with a burger or sub. One of the better ones from full sail, comparable in quality to the Amber I think.

05/14/14 On tap. Now this is what a beer should taste like. It hits all the right spots. Not wanting to ruin the magic w/analytics I'll just say this is a great example of a well rounded & balanced beer.

At 6.5% I'm going to have to exhibit some restraint...not a strong point.

Funny...I find myself thinking this is just short of great, but only because it's so solid in appeal. Nothing sharpish or spiky. Solid is what I'm left with & there's nothing wrong with that.

Good session ESB from Full Sail. Pour a reddish amber with medium white head that dies down to thin clinging lacing. Nose of is subtle with hints of caramel malts, light herbal hops, and some light bread qualities. Flavor is mild caramel malts with light hops bitterness to the back, mellowed out by the malt. Very nice mouth feel with light bittering hops on the aftertaste. Nice all around session beer for the more novice beer nut or a good one for large get-togethers.
