3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
12oz served into a SA perfect pint glass.
A - Pours a clear amber with an off-white head. Average lacing.
S - Sweet cereal grains, caramel malts, biscuits.
T - Yeasty bread, caramel, sweet cereal grains, grapes, and hints of citrus. It finishes up semi-dry with a light earthy toastedness.
M - Creamy carbonation, medium body, smooth feel.
This was straightforward and pretty good. Needs a little more hops but drinks nice. Caramel malts and a sweet grain flavor dominate. I would drink this again.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Pours a hazy copper with no head and leaves no lacing. The aroma is subtle but nice. The taste is a little underwhelming. I expect big and bold from ESBs but this is just relatively light and drinkable. There is a little bit of hop bitterness in the finish but there is nothing here to write home about. Ok

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Not bad, decent session beer. Maybe a little light for the style, and a slightly metallic up front, but gives way to a fairly smooth and creamy beer with reasonable maltiness and a clean finish.,

Bottle - Grains and caramel. Clear amber with an off white foamy head. Nice malty flavors, with some light caramel and bitterness. Very clean finish, with next to no residual bitterness. A superbly sessionable beer.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
I donít know if this beer is worthy of the title E.S.B. but at least itís decent. It pours a cloudy dark amber color with a slight scent of wheat. Has a good strong wheat flavor with a slight bitter finish to it. Drinks rather smooth and is quite different from the taste of many other of Lakefrontís beers.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 8/20
a clear fresh looking beer of a tan amber color. Sweet malt with caramel and slight fruitiness smell. Sweet taste with touch of tin and butter taste. A lighter crisper version of ESB.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
12 oz bottle served in pint glass poured a hazy amber/copper color capped by a thin off-white head with poor retention. Smells fruity, a bit yeasty, and like caramel malt. The taste is dominated by caramel malt. Rather even sweet/bitter balance; a bit sweet for an ESB. Very slight metallic off-taste. Medium/light body with low carbonation.
O: A disappointing offering from a superior brewery
