3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Tap at the brewpub. Pours hazy orange amber with a creamy beige head. Floral/citrus aromas. Med body - almost creamy. The flavor suggests a cask ale. Creamy, lightly caramel with floral and citrus. This would be a bit bitter for across the pond, but it’s very good.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap at the brewery. Medium amber color with almost no head. Aroma has some caramel malt and citrusy hop notes. Flavor matches the aroma well starting with caramel malt sweetness that transitions into a piney hoppiness towards the finish. Light/medium bodied. Overall a nice ESB.
