This is a great amber which sees regular rotation in slot #2 on my keggerator. Easy to drink and helps keep your head on your shoulders for prolonged beer drinking sessions. The flavor is nice and hoppy for an amber, but not enough to venture into the pale ale realm. Clean, crisp finish. If you drink this, a winner is you.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Aroma of malt, citrus and a bit of vanilla. Seems floral. Copper color with a vigorous beige head. Starts a bit thin, with malt quickly followed by citrus hop. Somewhat creamy. The citrus accompanies the malt through the finish. Really nice ESB.

What a surprise. I got a richly-colored, moderately fizzy, served colder-than-I-expected, hoppy, flavorful beer. Great hop/citrus/caramel balance. Pretty good effort.
