A. Poured at the brewery on nitro tap into a pint glass. The cascading guinness effect is there, but its a light yellow color, similar to a Boddingtons. Looks good to me.

S. Not much in the nose, some bready malts and floral hops.

T. Not bitter at all, the malts are sweet and the hops are barely there, but floral and accent the malt. Pretty good, and one of the most unique ESBs I have come accross.

M. Smooth and creamy. Finishes a bit dry.

D. This is a very drinkable beer. I would have it again.

Pours an amber gold color with an inch of white head, good retention.

Very little in the nose, light grainy malts.

Mild piney hop flavor with some basic grain malts.

Relatively thin body with a light carbonation.

Meh, not a very thrilling beer. Not bad, just kind of boring.
