L: Hazy amber. Off white head which dissipates quickly.
S: Brown sugar, syrupy sweet.
T: Not very ESB-like. It starts with smooth malt and ends bitter. Not a big fan.
F: Medium, then thin? Odd feel.
O: Not a huge fan. The smell and taste are very different. That, and it's inconsistent with the style. Better with food.
