On a recent trip to Fort Collins with friends, we had the opportunity to try this one on tap at the brewery. Poured a dark amber color with a bit of light tan foam on top. Aromas of caramel, toasted malt and light hops. On the palate, this one was medium bodied, with light hops, toasted malt and caramel.

Orbit ESB poured a bright copper colour with a good 1" head of foam and plenty of lacing.

The smell is lightish with balanced notes of light citrus and sweet and roasted malts. Another good nose in an Equinox brew. Fancy that.

The taste starts off on the hoppy side(not hugely so) with delicious citrus notes followed quickly by light bready and caramel sweet maltiness. Balanced? You betchya. It seems to be the signature of the Brewery and I'm loving it.

Again, medium bodied with ditto for the carbonation.

Drinkability? It's so delcious, what with the fine balancing act the malt and hops perform, that I could have sessioned on it for quite the while. I might *do* that the next time I visit.
