3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pint at Vine Street. This is a hazy red with a permanent white head. Aroma is of raisins, toffee, toasted brown sugar and grapefruit and pine for a departure from the style. Palate is medium with some sticky residual sugars. A little metallic bite I find commonplace in ESBs is present along with rich, sweet malt flavors of toffee, brown sugar, dried figs and an assertive citrus/pine hop bite for balance. This isn’t my preferred style, but I can hang with this one.
