3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Mild aroma with malt standing out and an almost fruity smell in the background. Copper color, medium large bubbled head. Medium bodied beer, malt flavors seem to be winning the war with the hops. Both malt and hops are mild but this beer is far from watery a well balanced beer. A fine everyday drinking beer

Kinda reminded me a bit more of a small old ale than an esb. Very fruity in the nose carrieng over into the mouth. Picks up a vinious charactor wich adds on the the fruitiness but its flavors kinda start to muddle and lean a bit towards the blase' side.

The beer pours a cloudless deep amber to copper color, the head capacious, the texture frothy, the color light tan and the residual lace a sticky thick sheet to smother the glass. The nose dominated by the malt, light hints of yeast, fresh and clean and a pleasure for the old beak to sniff. It starts mostly malt, lightly sweet, the top is moderate in it feel to the palate, spiteful in its acidity, pleasingly hopped if a little on the light side for me, dry lingering aftertaste, and a good representative to the style.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Medium orange brown color, large foamy head, light malty aroma. A lighter tasting ESB. Lightly malty with a nice English hop signature. This is NOT your typical American ESB, but it’s a very tasty beer. Mild taste, but well balanced. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and small. Aftertaste is slightly bitter. Nice beer.

Rerate: Down .02. Either inconsistent, or doesn’t have enough of the English style malt to merit the >4 rating, or not Americanized enough. Still very good. Original: 5/09/02: Has a bit of the deep peaty scottish style malting, I believe. Very light hoppiness. With these excellent english-style bitters, it always seems the head balls up into these tiny islands, with real thin foam connecting them. Wonderful.
