Liquid caramel corn. Sweet, sticky and decadent. The malting is substantial, and the body is solid. The hops offer little competition to the English malts. The finish represents more carbonation than what shows in the glass.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Good sized off-white head of fine bubbles. Good carbonation and decent lacing. Malt and bread aroma with a good helping of hops. Color is a dark orange amber. Flavor is sharp and pretty bitter with more malts, hint of caramel and roasted grains. Finish is bitter and pretty smooth. Little bit of a corn aftertaste which brings the brew down a little. Otherwise a good ESB.

although this beer was light in body and aroma I really enjoyed it. A nice hoppy/malt balance with a smooth finish. The appearance was slightly lacking being that this did not have much of a head.
