Hazy brown color. Smooth light beer taste with a slight hint of hops. Not as strong or as much flavor as I would have liked. With the graphic they used on the can. I was disappointed in the taste.

Middling to not bad bitter. Not really sure you could justify the ES part but it is perfectly drinkable.

Had a lot better but also had an awful lot worse.

Being a big fan of ESBs and heavy metal, I was excited about this. But not having expectations set too high I was not disappointed. This is very good and seems to tread a middle ground between an ESB and a Pub Cream ale. Overall it's a good English ale, but I'd like a little more in the abv.

Appearance: hazy, golden to a weak-tea amber depending on light. Half finger of creamy head that didn't last too long

Nose: toffee, caramel, butterscotch, with a hint of citrus

Flavor: matches the nose well. the citrus comes through in the finish and seems a little weird for an ESB at first.

Mouth: light bodied, smooth, not to much carbonation.

Had on tap at the Bryant Lake Bowl. L: Brilliant gold under a thin white film. S: Faint resins and grass T: Malty, fruity sweetness with some lemon notes dries on the finish with a touch of grainy astringency. F: Medium body and medium carbonation. O: An easy to drink ESB.
