Premium bitter? Whatever. Rich malty sdawater. Spree candy sweet aroma. Flavor of buttery LaCroix or Clearly Canadian sparkling raspberry water. Mouthfeel absconds into bubbly lightness before it can deposit any meaningful body on the palate. Finish is light, sweet, and piney.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle pour into shaker pint glass from Downtown Discount Beverage. Aroma is caramel and dark fruit with noble hops. Appearance is clear, beautiful copper amber with finger width off-white fluffy head with attractive sudsy lacing. Taste is strong caramel with fruit, noble hops light bitter. Palate is medium bodied with thin but creamy texture, lively carbonation and pleasant sweet finish. Overall, much better than I was expecting based on ratings. Not much nuance here but good at what it does with exceptional appearance.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
My favorite ESB, pours bright, clear copper with thin off-white head. Aromas of caramel, bread dough, and a slight metallic note that in no was is displeasing. In fact, the smell entices well into the flavor, which translates most of the nose directly. Caramel and toast on the tongue. Finishes fairly dry with a semi-sweet lingering aftertaste. Much tasty. So session!
