3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
Clearish amber with a thin off-beige cap. The aroma is malty sweet with some light caramel and crystal nuttiness, with a light touch of grassy pine. The taste is nice and smooth, thorough maltiness with a semi-sweet earthy caramel, with a smooth grassy and pine resin bitterness throughout that really shines during the long lasting finish. But theres this herbal bite throughout that I can’t describe other than French fry seasoning. It’s light, but there. Not in any bad way. Just has that bbq salt-ish twang.

Sampled at repeal. Didn’t quite know what to expect here having never had a double ESB. Not sure it is that. Caramel and plenty of complex malt. Hops are very much secondary. Othets at the festival liked itba
Ot but I was just ok with it.
