Tap. Pours clear deep amber, small creamy tan head, nice lacing. Aroma is bready, seven up. Flavor is odd, lots of black teas, root beer? Light sweet, light bitter. Lightish body. Not getting the fascination.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Lots of caramel sweetness in aroma and flavor. Murky mahogany and a really thin mouthfeel. Not a fan of this style much so I’ll rate accordingly.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
This good looking beer has a beautiful amber color and pours with a thick creamy head. It has a mild aroma. It has a really nice smokey malt flavor and is easy to sip. Paired nicely with a creamy herb cheese and toast.

Heard lots of good things, but ultimately I was rather let down by this beer. Somewhat soapy taste with none of the deeper roasts, caramels being at the forefront. I was hoping for a more, full bodied affair.

Bottle at Beer Hunters.
Clear ruby color, good beige head. Aroma has spiceyness and berries. Medium-bodied, lots of carbonation. Berries, wood, nuts in the flavor. Not the most traditional Esb. Perharps not so fresh.
