Sampled at the 2013 Knoxville Brewer’s Jam. Orange with a white head. Smells citrusy. Taste is stale bread (in a good way) and citrusy hops. Tasty, seems more like an American Pale than an ESB.

2.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
An average beer which taste like the other beers they have out there. I would not really call this an ESB. Nothing very special. Its okay at best. Mild aroma, similar hop profile and yeast to other beers which makes it middle of the pack.
