I had this on tap at Beachwood in Long Beach. I really enjoyed this beer. The caramel maltiness plays well with the hop flavors and, all in all, I think this is very well crafted.

On tap at their place in Long Beach. Pours a copper amber with a thin off white head. Aroma is slight malt and slight caramel. Flavor follows with a bit more bitterness than most ESBs. But overall, a nice, drinkable beer.

On draft. Kind of a citrus hopsy take on an ESB. Licorice at the beginning and a tangerine hops finish. Very nice.

Keg at Beachwood, Long Beach, 17/04/14.
Clear golden with a moderate off white covering.
Nose is biscuit malt, dark fruit rinds, bitter orange.
Taste comprises more biscuit malt, light caramel, grass, fruit peel.
Medium bodied, fine carbonation, semi drying close.
So so ESB but at least an attempt to be truer to style than most - ie not overloaded with hops!

First beer at Beachwood LB, and its a nice intro to their beer, solid malt to back up the perceived bitterness from the english hop. Maris otter is so played out.
