11/27/13. On tap at the Downtown Market in Asheville. Amber brown pour with a small khaki head. Good aroma, light biscuit aspect, caramel, doughy malts, some earthy hop presence. Good flavor as well, biscuit, maltiness, caramel, a hint of fruitiness and hop. Solid for the style.

Tasted on 11/29/13 from a capped 12oz bottle purchased at Whole Foods Green Hills. Pours burnt orange with an average off-white head that slowly recedes to average lace. The nose is classic ESB with nutty malt, spicy noble hops, a touch of chocolate, and a touch of some fruit. The flavor is the same with the nutty and chocolate malt up front, moving to the spicy and nicely bitter noble hops. The body is light with just below average carbonation and a medium nutty and spicy hops finish. This is a top-notch ESB.

bottle. syrup thick brown pour with almost no head. big bready caramel malty nose. flavor is also robust toast, caramel and even some nuttiness. not much in the way of hop character. full bodied and thick. more like a s. english brown imo because of the huge malt presence.

wnoble (1251) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - NOV 4, 2013
On tap at the beer market. Pours deep amber. nose is rich malts and caramel. Flavor lends a very pronounced caramel and biscuit malt flavor mixed with an herbal hop presence and finishes with just a touch of roast malt. Semi sweet but finishes moderately dry. Good beer.

HighlanderOne (1050) - Bergen County, New Jersey, USA - OCT 24, 2013
On tap at jack of the wood in Asheville. Fresh hop and roasted malt aroma. Clear copper with thin lacing head. Sweet caramel malt and floral hops in flavor. Notes of pepper and spice. Maybe a bit under carbonated but extremely drinkable. Nicely done

Pint. At Laughing Seed Cafe Asheville. Ok aroma. Sweet. Malty. Nutty doughy. Tad hazed brownish orange. Great head and lace combo. Bitter flavor. Medium body, creamy mouthfeel, kind of bitter finish. Its ok. Not like many esbís Iíve had. Borderline brown ale to me. But surprised I hadnít rated this untill now. Aroma has a strong nutty mealy scent.

Just a bit to much malt. Or maybe not enough hops? Not balanced enough for an ESB. This is out of a bottle and I've had it on tap and was much more impressed. If you can get a growler. I'll drink it again and probably more than I should. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
