This is a very solid ale. Can only recommend it. Hard to find in liquor stores in the midwest if not impossible.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
A mid amber brown coloured beer with a weak off white head. A light fruity aroma, orange and peach, then a caramel, biscuity malt aroma comes through. Dry mouthfeel. A mildly bitter taste to start, hoppy, with citrus and stone fruits mixing with a smoother, slightly sweeter, caramel and biscuity malt flavour. The finish is hop led, but the malt comes through later making for a well balanced ending.

Pours clear, pale copper with a bit of yeasty nose. Toffee and a bit of liquorice from malt against moderate hop bitterness. Not a bad beer but not the best ESB I’ve had.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
This beer was ok, but I’m just not a big fan of extra bitters, so trying to be unbiased here. Taste is very bitter..maybe even moreso than a barelywine. Flavors of caramel and hops on steroids. Very hoppy like a double IPA, but with half the alcohol content. Has a amber brown color. A better than average all around beer, but not one of my favorites in the Left Hand family.
