2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
(From growler) : Undercarbonated, orange-apple juice with shy resinous bitterness...Watery peaches exemplify the bland fruitiness and the lack of malt and hops is soon felt...Not worthy of a pint...

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Amber hue with small off-white head and some lace. The aroma hinted of aromatic traditional hops, roasted malt, minor caramel, zesty yeast esters, apple and pear, touch of honey and allspice. The taste was straight forward, balanced malts and hops, nothing too aggressive or unique. Nice bitter and slightly fruitu finish. The mouthfeel was lively and a bit chalky. Good but not great ESB, had worse and better. Try if in area only.
