Not one of the only craft beer cans anymore! This is still a very good esb in a can. No off tastes and just a clean red/esb.

Pours a clear amber colour with an extremely creamy white head. Aroma is a little flat with some grainy notes, a bit like cereal. Taste is a little bitter but mostly imperceptible, not sweet, just nice. Ceamy mouth feel, light to medium body, and soft carbonation. Decent ESB overall.

Tap @ Brewery pours amber with little head retention. Slghtly earthy malt notes and hops. Overall, could use more structure and grip.

Poured from the can into a pint glass, nice foamy reddish look in the glass smells sweet. Very easy drinking to the tune of about 10 minutes a beer. I like that it tastes English with a hop aftertaste. The can gets the recycle points, well done then.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Medium amber body shows off soft caramel and toffee malts that pick up refreshing, bitter hops and light floral sweetness through the finish, which turns a bit watery on the back of the palate. Straightforward and drinkable, but nothing special.

"no longer one of onlt a handful of canned microbrews...a decent example of a bitter, but not one that separates itself from the crowd. very quaffable with a pleasant lite malty sweetness, caramel and toffee, and a slight floral hop kick."

Hoppy nose, touch of honey. Fruity hops, caramel, lemon peel, dry bitter finish. Quite bitter as expected, decent hoppiness even though a bit dry on the palate.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours mostly clear copper with a lacy white head that fades to a coating. Aroma is wet hay, bready malts, maybe some citrus. Taste is floral hops, grass, toasted bread and caramel malts with a slightly bitter hop finish. Very dry on the palate. I enjoy the style and this is a nice variation. Better poured in a glass!
