On Tap at Firebirds. Pours orange with white head. Aroma is of piney hops, bready malt and ripe fruit. Body is full and crisp. Piney hops, bready malt and ripe fruit fill the mouth. Finish is long and bitter. Very good.

Had with a braised chicken poboy. Is fantasmic a word? It made their porter look like chopped lover. I know my new beer at the Second Line. Go get one. Blew my mind. The beer itself has a big flavor that doesn't overpower itself. Well balanced. Will definitely get again!

First time drinking an esb .
Wasnt too sure id enjoy it.
After the first sip i will say i would drink this again most decidedly. Has a pleasant mouth feel.
A good dry with a hint of bittersweet on the finish
