Glass: Manzanita pint glass
From: A Whole Foods in Tempe, Ariz.
Price: Est. $5.99
Purchased: May 16, 2013
Consumed: May 30, 2013
Poured a caramel copper murky color with 1-2 fingers of khaki-white head, which went away rather quickly. Minimal foggy lacing on the sides. Average-to-below average retention all the way down.
Smelled dark fruits, including plum, figs and dates. Also caramel and toffee malts and roasty nuts.
Tasted pretty similar to the nose with a bit more maltier feel. Plum, figs, dates, nuts, toast, caramel and toffee.
Medium body. Oily texture. Soft carbonation. Abrupt finish.
Pretty good beer for my second try from Lumberyard. I’m still new on the ESB’s, but I would have it again.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Clear, reddish amber with a small head. Yeasty aroma, with malt, grass, and wood. Taste is bright, of sharp yeast fading to a sweeter malt, with a bit of a hops bite. Lingering grassy yeast. Not bad.

A thin caramel to the aroma. This is light and smooth but with enough caramel. An easy finish. Very sessionable.

2.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Half pint on tap. Clear amber color, small head. Taste is good but their imperial red is better in almost every way. Bitter and burnt are the two prary tastes, with not enough malts to balance. Forgettable. Mediocre, I’d pass.
