Nice & malty with a substantial bitterness. A bit too clean for an English ESB--would like it a bit more estery. Almost more of a Scottish export. Good beer nonetheless.

Sample at the tasting room. This beer is a dark amber color with a medium off-white head that recedes steadily to a film. Small patches of lacing on the glass. Aroma of dark malt and hops. Light body with flavors of earthy malt, caramel and a touch of dark fruit. The finish is malty up front with a mildly hoppy aftertaste. Decent overall.
