UPDATED: DEC 22, 2007 2006-12-22, draught at Draught House, Austin, TX, as ESP, 6-3-7-4-14=34
Golden color, nice lace. Some aroma of malt. Good malt flavor, a lot of caramel, good hopping, not thick. Close enough to an English Ale, with some extra hopping.

2003-04-05, draught in Orlando, FL, 5-4-7-4-14=34
Amber color. Light but nice hop aroma. Pretty good body, mainly characterized by the hop, also prevailing in the final, well aromatic.
