4.33/5  rDev +6.1%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Poured from a bottle into a duvel tulip

A-Deep copper color, when held to the light there was the presence of some orange and dark gold, the 1 & 1/2" off-white head that sat on top lasted for an average amount of time and then created some decent lacing.

S-Malty, yeasty and caramel

T-Wow, this is a great beer, I haven't had many ESBs but if this is indicative of the style, they're quickly going to become one of my favorites. Not a too heavy bitter (I was hoping for a bit more) taste, along with malt, caramel, brown sugar, and dark fruits

M-Medium body, with great carbonation

D-Very drinkable, I'm looking for a pub in the orlando region that would have it on cask!

look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

This is a tasty brew that goes down easy. Has beautiful sunburst color that reminds me of a Gibson Les Paul. Hoppy aroma balanced by a soft caramel smell, soo good. Taste is of malty goodness along with grassy hops. Full of flavors for it's medium body. Low in carbonation but manages to keep a very thin head on top. Overall this brew rocks! I can see myself coming home from a long day of work and having one or two of these pint bottles in a nonic. Definately will be buying this again. Excellent!
