3.6/5  rDev -10.7%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

Got in a BIF from Dragginballs76. 16 ounce can into pint glass, canned on 4/11/2018. Pours fairly hazy/cloudy golden orange/amber color with a 1 finger fairly dense and fluffy off white head with solid retention, that reduces to a thin spotty lace cap that lingers. Light spotty lacing clings on the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation retaining the cap. Good appearance. Aromas of lemon, orange, peach, plum, pear, melon, red apple, cracker, and toasted bread; with lighter notes of caramel, nuttiness, pepper, herbal, floral, grass, and yeast earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance and complexity of citrus/earthy hops, fruity yeast, and bready malt notes; with solid strength. Taste of lemon, orange, peach, plum, pear, melon, red apple, cracker, and toasted bread; with lighter notes of caramel, nuttiness, pepper, herbal, floral, grass, and yeast earthiness. Light-moderate herbal, floral, grassy, peppery bitterness on the finish. Lingering notes of lemon, orange, peach, plum, pear, melon, red apple, cracker, toasted bread, light caramel/nutty, pepper, herbal, floral, grass, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Nice complexity, robustness, and balance of citrus/earthy hops, fruity yeast, and bready malt flavors; with a nice malt/bitterness balance, and no astringent flavors after the finish. Light-moderate increasing dryness from bitterness and carbonation. Medium-high carbonation and light-medium body; with a very smooth, moderately crisp, and fairly bready/grainy/sticky balanced mouthfeel that is good. Pretty thin, but not too watery. Zero warming alcohol as expected of 5%. Overall this is a good ESB. All around good complexity, robustness, and balance of citrus/earthy hops, fruity yeast, and bready malt flavors; very smooth, crisp, and easy to drink; with the modestly bitter/drying finish. Definitely could use less carbonation, and stronger dark/bready malt character. Well balanced English yeast, malts, and hops. A nicely enjoyable offering, and good style example otherwise.
