I had this on tap at Mcgivney's in Juneau.
It was poured into a pint glass.
The appearance was a hazy burnt orange to slightly ruddy brown color with a one finger white foamy head that dissipated within about a minute. There was some light lacing sticking and then sliding down the glass.
The smell had some nutty malts with a subdued bready toffee and caramel malts.
The taste was mainly the same.
The mouthfeel was somewhat heavier than I expected but nothing wrong or overbearing. It left a dry smooth maltiness in the aftertaste and finish.
Overall, pretty good ESB that I would have again.
