3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
I had this on tap at the brew pub in Flagstaff, AZ.
A: clear medium amber, with a fairly good off-white head. Excellent lacing.
The aroma was rather faint and fruity, but there was plenty of light, medium and caramel malts. Nice balancing and lightly spicy hop component. A bit maltier and less bitter than average for style. Recommended.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
This one is amber in color with an off-white head. Smells of bread and toasted malt with a bit of pine and floral hop character. There is a touch of citrus peel, too. A very light fruitiness and citrus flavor with quite a bit of toast and bread sweetness. The bitterness is a bit more pronounced than expected with pine hop flavors coming through strongly.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a clear brown with modrate head from tap that quickly dissipates leaving small amount of pacing. Prominent caramel malt. Resinous and grassy hops that is moderatly bitter. Very long bitter finish. Moderate carbonation with chewy and sticky palate.bling bitter finish. Ooverall pretty good. Addendum after further review. I agree with past review of biscuit flavors.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Light brown coloured beer with some very light carbonation with a very short white head. Bitter touched hoppy aroma. Medium to full palate. Finish is light bitter and wattery hoppy hinted. Rather short dry bitter ending but misses some character. Nevertheless my favorite brew at Flagstaff.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
hazy reddish amber with a thin whitish head.
smells like dirt... i’m starting to see a trend in hopping. might be the hippies though. floral nose mixes with earth, spicy hops, caramel and orange peels.
the flavor is a richer version of the same with a little bit of astringency on a dry finish.
the body is medium though it feels a bit thicker than the typical esb. 6.5/4/6.5/3/14/3.4
