12 ounce bottle from Hayduke. This is cloudy golden with a nice off white head. The first thing I smell is pepper but it is light in the flavor. I taste grain and soft yeast. Mild bitterness tells me there some hops to be found. There is a sourness underneath. Mid glass I begin to taste more pepper and it is what could be found in a farmhouse style and it could pass for a saison. This is unique and somewhat intetesting.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
355ml bottle pours a pale golden color with a finger of white head that settles to leave a few spots of lacing. Aroma is citrus and grass with some cereal grains. Taste is a bold grassy and citrus hop bitterness with a peppery note and a light underlying malty sweetness. Light to medium body with adequate carbonation. A very flavorful ESB that is highly recommended.

Almost no aroma to be found, and what you do smell doesn’t offer up any information. Taste is very hoppy. Good, I guess you cool kids would call this a "session" beer.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Aroma is crisp, malty and rather strong - typical, but still acceptable. It pours a clear straw yellow with a rather thick and fluffy white head. Malty flavor is crisp with a fruity undertone and a hint of yeast. Texture is thick, smooth and fizzy, darned good. Not a great beer, but worthy of a try.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
A little hop spice in the lemony, sugary nose. A good bitterness, a little pepper hoppiness and some grassy dryness. Tasty but unmemorable.
