3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On draft. Pours a clear amber-orange with a small white ring of head that leaves no lace. Nose involves caramel malt, spicy and earthy hop notes, maybe a touch of peach. Some sweetness, but a bit more bitterness. Light side of medium bodied, cleansing palate, with a crisp herbal bitter finish. A nice brew, subdued but tasty.

a much maltier esb than i was expecting, almost like a brown ale or a smoother amber. bright somewhat tangy flavor. an above average, if somewhat off kilter, version of the style.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Burnt amber color with a thin lacing of white head. Aroma is slightly musty with a faint nuttiness. Flavor is light caramel, toasted malt, a little burnt on the finish. Not bad, though I remember liking it a little more at the brewery than from the bottle today. Would make a decent session if I was looking for something smooth and malty.

Bad label, bomber. Dark gold, light amber, clear, thin white head. Aroma is a bit like sweet iced tea. One-note golding hops. Dry, thin, not very complicated. Long, dry bitter finish. Thanks to LuckyDog.

UPDATED: FEB 7, 2014 On tap at Taco Mac. Pours a clear amber orange with a near white head that lasts throughout the beer and laces. Aroma has a bit of a smoke note and is full of earthy grains and hay. Flavor is full of the same earthy notes throughout with hints of must and smoke in the finish.
