Average ESB that starts better than finishes.

A: The beer is a medium amber brown color, with a short off-white head that fades quickly and leaves a thin lace.

S: The faint aroma is of honey, caramel and grassy hops, but fades rather than strengthens.

T: The taste follows smell and i balanced with flavors of dark fruits, honey and caramel. There's a mild hops and a bready malt character.

M: Crisp and smooth, medium body, medium carbonation, finish is clean, but too thin. Does not get better as it warms, as it should. as all beers should.

look: 3.25 | smell: 3 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.25

Look: Pours a pretty dark caramel color with a nice light tan head.

Smell: A sweet, chocolate, caramel aroma with some slight breadiness.

Taste: Nice taste. Exactly what you want out of an ESB, a signature malty and earthy sweetness. Reminds me of apple juice, almost cider like. A very mild bitter finish, hardly there.

Feel: Medium to full bodied, which is strange fora beer with such a low adv. Very unique.

I'm totally content with this ale. Poured into a pint glass at home. I would highly recommend it to a friend. I am a new starter in the field of beer fanatism so that i don't want to deeply analyse, that comes later after gaining experience. Enjoy !
