Poured into pils glass, gives off a couple inches of white, foamy head. Tawny brown in color, with active carbonation and some residual floaties rising and swirling. Aroma is sweet bready malts, with some hints of dark, spicy figs. Tastes the same, too, with a bitter bite upfront. Nice ale to visit with every year, although this year I had it much earlier than before. ESBs seems much more fitting when the temps are more regularly in the 60's and70's.
