Reviewed on 7/17/08. On cask. Pours an orange/amber with a small head. Aroma of light fruits. Flavor of some general sweetness, orange, and honey. This beer is light, a little muddied, weak and blandish. Not really a fan.

Poured a clear dark red with a nice foam white head atop it. Aroma was mild, slightly sweet and a bit bready.

This is a very balanced brew between a solid malt profile and grassy/leafy hop presence. Neither one dominates the flavor, but both work together to create a very enjoyable experience. Mouthfeel is medium and crisp. This is a very solid ESB, and very on-target with style.

Poured a medium amber hue with a quarter finger foamy white head. There was decent retention and lacing.

The smell featured a light grainy malt with a smattering of hop spice.

The taste consisted of a husky grain and a heavy doughy malt. Nice warrior hop finish.

The mouthfeel was medium bodied with a residual spiciness.

Overall a good representation of the style. Easy to drink and flavorful.
