Bottle dated 02/11/14 08:45 (how specific!)

A: Pours a clear ruby red. Tall, frothy and fizzy tan head. Good head retention but with basically zero lacing.

S: Lightly grassy, a little bit of biscuity malt.

T: Yup, grassy. Nice toasted bread malt. Slight wave of bitterness in the finish with a little grass and some herbal hops too maybe? Lightly drying in the finish too.

M: Medium bodied, smooth and slightly dry.

O: Pretty standard ESB. Crisp, smooth, drinkable. Lightly, lightly hopped but enough to give it some flavor. A nice session beer.
