light amber. ocean froth head. smells of old wood and weeds. Light sweet corn grain. Medium body. Nice grassy sap resin with a slight bit of booze and a hint of grainy sweetness, that, while not very present in and of itself, still contributes an impression of considerable complexity. Grassy, slightly harsh, hint of chemical bitterness lingers.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz. bottle- Pours clear copper with a 1 finger head that recedes almost immediately, aroma is caramel malts and fresh cut grass, little hops in the nose. The flavor is amber malty at first but then a more interesting caramel flavor shows up, sessionable. The body is thin to medium, carbonation is also medium. ESBís are not my favorite, but this is easy and sessionable, neat label too.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bomber from the local wine shop. Wispy head. Translucent orange appearance with a brown hue. Very dark, considering itís an ESB. Slight lemon zest, with a lot of lemon grass poking through. Nice light bitterness is coming through, and provides a nice pungent aroma. This is very fresh smelling and aromatic. The flavor is lemon grass, and a nice fruity more robust fruit flavor and bitterness comes through after the aforementioned flavor putters out. Not much of a label to describe age, date brewed, etc.; Itís quite lively for it having an assumed age on it. Fairly good. Iím quite pleased with this, and its fresh qualities. Quite thick and chewy for the style.
