On tap at the brew pub. This was my favorite during my visit, but ESBs are usually one of my favorite styles. Low in bitterness, it was very smooth and easy drinking. It had a slightly unique flavor, very nice overall.

Amber/caramel color.. light to medium bodied.

Smell was mostly sweet caramel, and it was harder to get much else out of it. Taste was decent balance of the sweet caramel with slight bitterness. Not too much else to comment on one way or the other. I thought it could've used a little more bitterness for the style, but other than wasn't bad.

Reviewed on 06/21/2010. On tap at the brewpub. This beer pours a dark amber brown with a small white head. Aroma of caramel malt and sweet fruits. Flavor is very sweet and malty upfront. The hops are not really in the picture. It's just an ok ESB for me.
