6 oz. sampler at brewpub. Pours beautiful deep reddish copper color with a creamy beige head that lasts well leaving good lacing. Aroma is very mild and understated, hints of biscuity malts and dusty, earthy hops. Flaover is mild also, roasty malts - more like what I would expect in a brown ale rather than an ESB - also has lots of earthy and dusty hops. Medium body and gentle carbonation.
