Nice looking, but little aroma. Flavor is spot on with good hop flavors and supporting malt character. A bit of smokiness that was surprising.

Beer #10 Asheville trip. Medium amber in appearance, nice head. Light aroma of caramel. Flavor is light caramel, with some pleasant fruitiness. Dry on the finish. I usually don’t go much for ESB’s, but this was quite solid. Sampled at Jack in the Wood on tap.
