A - Pours a brilliant clear peachy brown. Slightly tan head.
S - Bready malt with a touch of cinnamon, caramel and toffee. Smells kind of like a cinnamon roll.
T - Herbal hops start it off with an assertive bite and add some earthiness. Slightly buttery toffee malt. The hops are pretty aggressive.
It had some metallic notes at the beginning but faded. The herbal hops lowered the drinkability for me.
Serving type: bottle

It pours a hazy light amber orange with a small head that looks like off white styrofoam. The nose has a bit of caramel, a slight metallic note, slight floral notes, and a slight fruitiness. The flavor has a forward pine bitterness with lots of caramel, toast, maybe a slight touch of butterscotch, and a slight fruitiness. Medium body with soft carbonation leading to a dry finish. Really nice brew!

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Very nice malty aromas consisting of caramel, toasted malt and herbs. Flavors were good but not as strong as the aromas and were a bit more hoppy. Pours a beautiful amber color with a relatively small white head that left some lacing. Mouthfeel was a bit thin with a moderatly bitter finish. Overall an excellent and hoppy ESB.
