Good copper color, off white head, with good lacing
Smell was good, but did not reveal the great taste to come
Fruity start with a bitter finish. The hops were not overwhelming and the blending of the fruitiness and bitter in the middle was nice
Mouthfeel was a good medium-not watery or syrupy.
I was surprised by how good this brew is. Will definitely have more.

From Notes on 10-17-13, On-Tap at the brewpub.
A - Clear gold with half a finger of fizzy white head no lacing.
S - Very little aroma, some light grainy scents, and sweet malt.
T - Extremely light, sweet, very little bitterness, a touch of caramel.
M - Thin, watery, bland.
O - Not and ESB at all, no bitterness, how could it be an ESB? Its style is more like an extra pale ale.

one of the better beers at grittys I though, which isn't saying a whole lot, but this classic bitter and amber style fusion worked out pretty well. pours a lighter amber color, flat though, like all beers I had here. smells like light English pale and crystal malts, with the same ale yeast as the others, and a pronounced English hop finish, which is this beers best feature. the taste is the same as the nose, lighter than it looks, sessionable more than any other beer they had. carbonation is severely lacking, as it has the texture of tap water. plenty of body for the style, maybe a nitro tap would liven this up, but it just sits there dead. still, one of grittys better beers, went well with the food, and didn't offend me like their ipa did, so that's a start.
