look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3 | overall: 4

Appearance: It pours a clear amber with white head.

Smell: You certainly get a nice smell of malt and a bit of caramel. 

Taste: The caramel flavor is very prominent with hints of pine. I was a bit surprised though that this beer isn't as bitter as I would've expected. 

Mouth Feel: Its not as carbonated and crisp as I would have thought but what's really nice is the flavors hold through the whole sip, all the way through the aftertaste.

Overall: This is a really great ESB with a good balance of bitter and malt.

Ap. Deep Amber and clear, with nice little frothy head. Keeps coming back with a swirl of the glass.
Sm. Malty, smells like chocolate malt balls candy. Maybe some hops hidden in there, too.
Ta. Chocolate malt balls, but much much lighter than the smell. Some pine? Mild and long-lingering bitterness.
Mf. Smooth and mild.
Oall. Very nice, smooth and mild.
