2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Tasted on 10/27/14 from a capped 12oz bottle purchased at the grocery store. Pours clear bright amber with an average beige head that slowly recedes to thin lace and an average collar. The nose is lightly nutty bread with some caramel, mostly malt focused, with a light hint of spicy hops. The flavor falls a bit short of the classic ESB nose, with a bit more caramel malt, and no real discernible hops. The body is light with average, fizzy carbonation, and a short malty finish.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
I had this beer on draft at the Tilted Kilt in Kenosha, Wi. This beer has a nice, clear deep copper color and the aroma has a slight berry scent mixed in with toasted barely. The taste is very malty with strong malt and malt tones throughout, mixed in with hints of raisons and a very perceivable burnt toast character. There is a strong bittering character to the beer, but this bitterness is more associated with the astringent bitterness you get from roasted malts than from hops. Overall this is a decent beer that lacks anything to make it stand out from comparable beers in this style.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
This was surprisingly good. Initial pour I got a whiff of berry. Once in the glass the smell was pretty muted. Light brown with reddish tint. A white head that contrasted drastically with the body but quickly disappeared with a thin lacing. There is a berry presence followed by a malty back and floral hops (but not bitter at all). It is a little watery. I got this on sale and for that price I would get it again. This is a light drinking beer, and not usually my style - but I quite enjoyed it.
