3.41/5 rDev +4%
Pours a light and cloudy copper with well over a finger of head. The head retained well and left nice lace rings in its wake. The nose is both floral and bready, but also soapy. The malt flavors are not as pronounced as a top shelf ESB, but they are certainly present. The bitterness increases on the finish, but does not really pack a noteworthy punch in the end. This is a light and drinkable offering that is good, but clearly lacks the attributes of the best versions of this style.

poured 12oz bottle into Duvel tulip.
A - Dark red brown color, with a 2 finger dirty white head that fades slowly and leaves a ring and some lacing on glass.
S - Caramel, toffee, light roasted malts. Honey, fruit, nuts and floral hops.
T - A nice sweet malty caramel and toffee with bits of honey and fruit. Floral hops are in the background and provide a very subtle bitterness to go with a slight nutty flavor. Pretty good.
M - Medium body with light carbonation. Somewhat sticky sweet finish.
O - A nice offering if hops are not your choice. It is a nice beer to drink with almost any meal. I would definitely get this beer on tap at a restaurant, but would not buy it in the bottle to drink at home as a stand alone.

Pours a nice, soft, soapy head that has nice persistence and leaves great lacing. Sweet, nutty aroma is almost tart with caramel in the back. Lovely burnt umber color. Starts with an almost tartness, sweetness, and floral hoppiness. Becomes medium bitter as a nuttiness melds with toasted malt behind the hops. The finish is lingering toasted malt with floral hop bitterness, and a hint of caramel wafts in and out. There is a bit of a biting carbonation to it, I almost dislike that.
Overall, this isn't too bad. It's a nice mix of toasty malt and hop bitterness. Not my favorite, but not terrible. Fairly average.

A: Beautiful, rich russet red. A reasonable amount of cream-colored head. Decent lacing.
S: Very faint. Caramel and cherries.
T: Biscuity and burnt, with just a little spice.
M: Average. Rather clean finish.
O: One of the more piquant ESBs I've had, slightly different from the run of the mill.
Try it again? 4 - Probably

Poured out of bottle into pint glass.
A: Nice translucent amber color. Two finger head that dwindles to a nice sheen with bits of lacing here and there.
S: Nice floral hops and light malt character makes for a fresh smelling esb!
T: ESB's aren't one of my favorite styles, but this one seems a bit different. The lighter malt character makes for a great flavor. A bit of malt sweetness and floral hops at first this evens out into a pleasant bitter hop flavor.
M: A bit watery, just a bit more would be nice, however, this would make a great brew from a hot day.
O: Not a bad bier, try one on for size!
