4.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Beautiful autumn beer! A crisp and perfectly balanced ESB.
Aroma: malty with a hint of earthy, piney hops
Appearance: bronze, very slight haze
Taste: perfect balance of the right hops and the right toasty, caramely malts. Not too bitter, very smooth.
Palate: medium-light with a dry finish. Mellow after taste that makes you want more. Perfectly crisp, balanced beer for a crisp, cool Michigan autumn afternoon!

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle to pint. Looks decent; lots of fine sediment floating around though. A semi-transparent burnt orange with foamy eggshell head that slowly dissipates into lacing. Smells malty and lightly hoppy with a semi-sweet backbone. Tastes like it smells with a medium-bodied mouthfeel. Not bad, but unmemorable.
