I had this beer on-tap in a nonic at the brewery.

Appearance: orange-brown hue with a moderate murkiness and a thin layer of ivory foam. Not bad.

Smell: very bready and enticing aroma. I rather like it.

Taste: bready malt with a dash of biscuit and a little yeastiness. There's also a good bitterness here.

Mouthfeel: medium body with a nice, smooth creaminess. Great!

Overall: I'm not always an ESB guy, but this one is quite decent.

This is my first try of this new breweries beer so I'm expecting that improvements will be made. This ESB poured very lively, way over carbonated, and the large head left a lot of lacing. I suspect this isn't typical.

The aroma was typically caramel malty and a bit sweet. The flavor was fairly well balanced, with some showing up on the tongue that weren't in the aroma.

The body was a bit lighter than I like for the style. Drinkability was pretty good. I suspect this beer will improve with time and I'll adjust my review accordingly.
