3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
"Pretty good descriptors up above, though I got no thyme in the brew. Light tropical fruit, ample bitterness, earthy hops, toasty malts all in a darker and slightly stronger tan usual for the style brew."

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
This one poured a lighter red color with a beige head. Aroma was of biscuts, caramel, and grassy hops. Falvor was similar, well balanced, light alcohol, but a bit boring.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle:   Dirty caramel in color, small sudsy off-white head, sparce lacing.   Soft sweet malty nose, not a
lot of biscuit or breadiness, everything seems subtle.   Somewhat of a stale hop start, musty citrus peel, with really
no biscuit or breadiness.   Seems like a weak Amber Ale to me.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate.   Slight
caramel on the backside, with a touch of tea leaves.   Doesnt start like an ESB, but sorta finishes like one.
Body and mouthfeel are moderate.   Tiz okay, but not as sharp or vibrant as others, and perhaps a bit more citrusy.

Tap at Noble. Clear, deep amber pour with weak foam. Nose is not great, lemon juice, small bread. Taste is lemon tea and astringent dry malt. Dry and dusty finish. Eh.

Pours a copper color with a peach fruit and clean water aroma. Taste is creamy with a peach and caramel taste. The aftertaste is mellow with a quickly dissipating bitterness. Overall a decent ESB.

13 apr 2013, tap at Noble Ale Works. Light copper, clear, no bubbles. Nose is resin hops and lightly toasted malt. Thin body and mildly fizzy. Pine hops and copper malt. A little less fizzy and this would be a perfect ESB.
