Very cloudy pale, straw colored beer. A half inch layer of foam on the top. Very light floral hop aroma greets me. Extremely light and smooth on the tongue. Just a wisp of hops on the forefront and it quickly fades away. Pretty simple and straight forward.

Poured from tap into pint at Bridge st louis. Pours a murky burnt orange with thin clumpy head. Nice sweet malt aromas and mild hops with a tad of caramel. Taste is perfect english mild. Bitter hops and sweet malts in perfect combination.
Really easy to drink as it should be. Great brew!

Pours a clear, maize color. 1/4 inch head of a white color. Decent retention and slight lacing. Smells of strong earthy malt, hint of pale malt, an odd tea/jalapeno aroma, and an earthiness. Fits the style of an English Bitter. Mouth feel is smooth and crisp, with an average carbonation level. Tastes of caramel malt, slight yeast, slight mild hop, sweet malt, and a hint of pale malt. Overall, the body resembles a Bitter more than the aroma. The aroma is slightly disconcerting.

look: 4.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Appearance: The beer arrives with the liquid amber and hazed; the head was impressive and delivered some lacing as the liquid descended

Smell: Somewhat fruity aromatics with a hint of orange

Taste: Biscuity, up front, with a range of fruit flavors, notably papaya and orange; the bitterness is held in check as the malt continues to assert itself after the swallow

Mouthfeel: Medium body with moderate carbonation

Overall: Nicely balanced and eminently drinkable

Poured a clear crisp orange tinged caramel brown. Thin white head dissipated rather quickly.

Smell had light floral aromas with a nice caramel malt backbone coming through in the nose.

Taste was a light floral almost grassy hopped flavor balanced with a nice strong malt backbone. Caramel and bread come through from the malts. Very bitter finish from the hops dries the mouth.

Feel is light and drinkable. Low ABV is wonderful.

Overall a really nice ESB from urban chestnut.
