12 oz. can from my Secret Santa. Thanks man! Pours a copper orange color with a small, off white head. Very light lacing. Malty aroma of caramel and dark breads. Herbal hops. Flavor is malty with medium hop presence. Medium bodied with lingering malt sweetness towards the finish. Pretty nice.

2.5 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Light alcohol taste. Tad sweet with faint caramel. Half of me thinks it’s a great average beer, half of me wants to say it’s nothing special. I like it but I could see your average beer connoisseur to think it’s bland and not tasty. Well worth the buck I got it for.

Pours a clear coppery color with off-white head. Caramel malts, toast, and bread on the nose; follows onto the palate. Finishes with more maltiness. Somewhat one dimensional.

Clear copper with a foamy white head. Lovely Amber biscuity nose with a grassy hop and a hint of butterscotch syrup. Nice smooth flavor of dry amber malt and cracker and a little earthy grassy bitterness. Great balance and earthy flavor. Could drink that at a picnic or a sports game.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
I poured this into a pint glass.
The appearance was a hazy burnt orange color with a one finger white foamy head that dissipated within about a minute. There was some light lacing sticking and then sliding down into the beer.
The smell had a grassy sort of bittered caramel edge to a light nutty bitter hoppy aspect.
The taste was somewhat sweet but had a decent bitter edge of the malts.
On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a fairly decent sessionability about it. The carbonation was somewhat sharp but still good for the style and for me. Lingering bitter grassy and grainy finish.
Overall, decent ESB, could probably do this again.
