Slight toffee aroma. Pours amber. Very bland. No real bitterness or malt flavor. Probably cheap ingredients. Almost like it’s diluted.

Transfer from BA review on 3-22-14- Served on tap in a pint glass Appearance – The beer is served an deep amber color with a one finger off white colored head. The head has a decent level of retention, fading to leave a moderate level of streaky on the sides of the glass. Smell – The aroma of the beer lighter overall with some aromas of toasted malt and a little bit of caramel sweetness. Along with these smells are some light earthy and grassy smells with just a hint of biscuit mixed within. Taste – The taste begins with a biscuit and toasted malt flavor with a lighter level of caramel sweetness. As the taste advances so too does the caramel increase in intensity, but it does so only temporarily, with it again fading a bit as the flavor advances more toward the finish of the taste. Once the caramel starts to dwindle some hop flavors of a more earthy and grassy nature come to the tongue. These remain relatively light overall, and when mixed with the bit of caramel sweetness and the rather toasted malt flavors of the brew, end up leaving a rather clean and crisp lightly roasty flavor to linger on the tongue. Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is on the slightly thinner side with a carbonation level that is on the average side. Both suit the flavor profile rather well, making for a very easy drinking brew that is rather refreshing overall, but yet still adequately stacked in flavor. Overall – A rather easy drinking beer. Although a little light in the bitter department for a esb and in many ways more amber ale in nature in my opinion, it is decently flavorful and easy drinking none the less.

Can. Pours a deep amber with a small off-white head. Aroma of caramel, earth, and some nuttiness. Flavor was sweet with caramel, bread, earth, brown sugar and nuts.
