Tap @ Pies & Pints. Clear, light amber pour with a white head leaving a moderate lace. A pretty standard amber with a nutty, sweet , medium body and mild pine hops. Smooth, tasty, but nothing to write home about.

On tap at Lazy Boy, pours a hazy amber with a small off-white head. Aroma brings out toasted malt and a touch of floral hops. Flavour is kind of vegetal, with bready malt and just enough hops to be noticeable. The vegetal notes make this seem a bit off. Not too good.

Draught in a flight at the brewpub. Pours a clear amber color. Nose has some bread and caramel malts coming through. Taste is slightly sweet with the caramel being present, but manages to have a nice bite to it. Decent drink.

I totally approached this beer incorrectly. I thought it was an American Amber but was taken aback by the first sip and realized, HEY this is an ESB! Chewy maltiness in the flavor and a slight ’meaty’ characteristic. Notes of biscuit, cracker, raw doughy-ness, along with a floral richness. There’s also a touch of fruitiness given off from the yeast. Malty, sweet, and a little fruity. Really similar to RedHook ESB.

Amber colored pour with a nice head. Aromas of caramel, toffee, and floral hops. Toasted caramel and some off flavors that I could not put my finger on are accompanied by a mild hoppy finish.

On tap at the brewery. Biscuity aroma. Medium-strong malt heaviness and stays on the tongue. Full flavored throughout. Fantastic!

Draft at the brewery. Pours a clear dark amber with a lacy white head. A lot of nuttiness, bread and some toffee in the nose and flavor, along with some citrus/herbal hops. Clean finish.
