4.15/5  rDev n/a
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

A - Deep amber with a nice thick head that looks like whipped cream. Good thick walls of lace stick to the 16oz pint glass, and head retention is outstanding. This is a tasty lookin' brew!

S - Floral hops, caramelized sugar, and lots of fruitiness.

T - Very fruity British-syle hop notes... tangerines, peaches, and a small hint of big plump grapes.

M - Dry and finely carbonated. This is luscious and thick, but not heavy in body. Creamy the way that Tetley's or Bodingtons in the "pub can" is creamy.

D - Great session potential! After trying the Bela Imperial Pils I wanted something a little less odd and a little more drinkable with my slab of cedar plank salmon (which was killer by the way!). This is a really solid ESB that gets its lush mouthfeel from the cask. Good stuff!
