Thanks glazeman!

A - Orange, light red with no head. Average appearance.

S - Piney hops, soap, oranges, and fresh, juicy tangerines. This is a good one - very interesting.

T - Another good one from Short's. Oranges, tangerines, and more citrus hops. Very crispy and refreshing.

M - Average. Thin, but just fine for a 5.75% ESB.

D - Low ABV and very refreshing - I could drink several of these for sure.

12 ounce bottle into pint glass, bottled on 8/29/2013. Pours moderately hazy deep orange copper color with a 1-2 finger dense light khaki head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Light spotty soapy lacing clings down the glass. Aromas of caramel, toast, biscuit, toffee, pear, apple, grape, orange zest, floral, grass, herbal, light pine, and yeast earthiness. Very nice aromas with good balance and complexity of malt, yeast, and hop notes; with good strength. Taste of caramel, toast, biscuit, pear, apple, toffee, orange zest, floral, grass, herbal, pine, and herbal/yeast earthiness. Fair amount of earthy floral/pine bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of caramel, toast, biscuit, toffee, pear, apple, orange zest, floral, grass, herbal, pine, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Very nice balance and complexity of malt, hop, and yeast flavors; with a good malt/bitterness balance and slight cloying bitterness after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a smooth, crisp, and moderately sticky mouthfeel that is good. Alcohol is very well hidden with only a slight warming present after the finish. Overall this is a very good ESB style. Good balance and robustness of hop, malt, and yeast flavors; and very smooth and crisp to drink. A nicely enjoyable offering.

A - Pours a cloudy burnt orange with a very this white head.

S - Malt upfront with an earthy hoppiness on the end.

T - Earthy piney hops with some sweet maltiness. Nice balance.

M - Medium body with medium carbonation. Soft easy drinker.

O - A decent beer. Nothing exciting going on here. Would be a nice session beer.
