Why are there not more ESB’s running around? This is a wonderful beer, just the right bitterness, excellent aftertaste!

Wonderful thick cloudy brown out of the glass. Aroma isn’t especially strong, though a nice mix of hops, grain, and nuttiness do appear. Drinks fantastically, though -- rye spice and nuttiness jump in, complemented by nicely weighted hop flavor. Really paired nicely with the pizza we were having and could easily have had a few more!

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Golden copper pour with small white head. Aroma of rye malts, caramel, slight fruits. Taste of rye malts, slight caramel, bread dough. Full bodied, perfect carbonation, nice and crisp, low on the hops. Not overly bitter, a litter more bitterness would have pushed this over 4, excellent beer anyways.

Copper colored pour with a white head. This is a very nice beer. Quite a big dose of rye spice, some great malty back notes, bread, hints of citrus. Really a great session beer.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
..On draught at Fate. Pours a hazy copper color with eggshell head. Aroma is berries, rye, and cracker. Taste follows suit. Thin and dry with some caramel in the finish. One of the least hoppiest and creamiest of Fate’s brews.

On tap at the brewery. Comes light amber with a small white head. Aroma of malt, grain, and yeast. Taste is malt, rye, grass, and caramel. Not too sweet. Pretty good.

At the brewery, orange pour with a roasty aroma. Nice bitterness, and the rye is prevalent. Its good. Another decent brew.
