Pours a dark copper color with a nice two finger cream colored head. The head falls slow with some good lacing.

Aroma is nice toasted malts with nice fruity notes. Some light hop aroma floral with some over ripe fruit. Who know maybe the fruits more from the malt then the hops. Either way nice smelling ESB.

Taste is nice toasted malts good caramel hints some ripe fruity notes. Hops in the finish seem more earthy with touches of pine. Good malt flavors with just enough hops for an ESB.

Mouthfeel is solid medium carbonation is smooth with a light pep towards the finish.

Overall very well done ESB great way to represent a style.
