Pours a copper-amber color with a thin head. Aroma is malty sweet with a touch of cascade-floral hops. Flavor is deep. Very well balanced with cereal malt sweetness and dry floral hops on the back-end. Pretty good.

2.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Deep bronze colored beer with a thick off white head. Nose of slight floral hops with a hint of citrus, but overall the aroma is pretty tame. Mild citrus flavors initially that give way to a slight bitterness, but the hop characteristics are anything but complex. This is pretty mild for a bitter. Decent and drinkable, but not memorable.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Eh, bland & forgettable. Nice copper pour w/ a huge tan head that leaves good lacing. The aroma is of soft malt. The taste is pretty thin & almost watery for an ESB. Iím not getting much bitterness at all. Mediocre at best.
