4.75/5  rDev +28.7%

I really enjoyed this breweries take on a classic ESB. This beer style is all about balance between malt and bitter and they really nailed it. There is an initial malty flavor that quickly switches gears into a earthy bitter flavor. It seemed like this beer really knows what it wants to be...extremely flavorful.

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

A-deep orange some carbonation, one finger head lacing

S-some darker fruits, tad but of caramel. Not much in flavor.

T-semi sweet, some caramel, molasses, tad bit of darker fruits, very Belgian esque.

M-lighter, nicely carbonated, slightly watery though

I- It seemed like this beer doesn't know what it wants to be.
