2.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
This pours a copper color but has tons of floaters. Thin and slightly off-white head. Very little lacing. Aroma is nice...hoppy with hints of fresh cut grass, watermelon and citrus. Mouth feel is very watery. Almost no taste but a bit of tart bitterness. A bit of a dank basement flavor.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
Can: Gold & burnt amber, hazy throughout & topped with a frothy, chunky, eggshell cap. Lightly bitter, grassy & floral aroma. Very clean, inviting, light, but refreshing. Small hints of mildly bitter citrus peel, melon, hint of white pepper. Taste is as clean & crisp as the smell would indicate. Hop leaves, freshly cut grass clippings with a mild weediness. Lightly peppered grapefruit rind, hints of peach, floral hops, & a zesty finish leaning towards some toasted biscuit & baked bready malt. A light but lovely session beer, I wish this was available to me all the time. One of the easiest drinking beers you’ll find.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
16 oz. can pours a hazy caramel/orange color with small white head but lots of lacing. Aroma has orange peel, apricot and toffee. Taste is as bitter as expected, with slight sweetness in the middle and a bit of mint in the bitter hoppy aftertaste. Body is light to medium with average carbonation and a slightly sticky mouthfeel. Easier to drink than I thought it might be. A very good ESB

Can. Distinct toast and marmalade aromas. Pretty bitter for the style, but still definitely an ESB. Very tasty. I quite like this.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a slightly hazy orange, small head, good lacing. Aroma was nice and light with some lemon, tang, grapefruit, mango, honey, and some peach. Taste mainly followed the nose. Awesome light brew with a nice fruity taste perfect for summertime. Light body, perfect amount of bitterness, and a smooth finish. Very good.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Purchased at Bottles and Cans in Chicago, IL; enjoyed on a humid Monday June night after work and a walk. Appearance is a very cloudy dark gold with a rich and frothy white head. Aroma of passion fruit, light wheat, light floral, decent. Taste goes down with moderate syrup and bitterness, definitely fruity. Overall good offering.
