A- pours a hazy bright copper color with a frothy white head

S- bright citrusy hops combined with a bit of citrus harvest and a bit of grassy woodsy smell

T- great balance of citrus/floral hops and bready sweet malt, a bit of caramel and sweet fruitiness, finishes somewhat dry with a bit of cracker crispness

M- medium body, low carbonation, slightly creamy finish

O- this one had some great balance and was very drinkable, just solid overall

Serving type: bottle

Definitely an Americanized version of the classic ESB, which is to say it's over-hopped & lacks balance in the malt / hop ratio. It isn't too abrasive with the hops & it has a good body, but the malt profile is a letdown
