Pours copper in color with a medium off white head. The aroma is floral, citrus, grapefruit, and some caramel. The taste is floral and citrus hops with a solid caramel malt backbone. Medium bitterness on the finish. I like it.

Pour is light brown with a slight red tint and a finger-wide head that lasts for a while. Aroma is of rye grains, cloves, slight hop bitterness. Flavor is balanced nicely and starts off malty but transitions into bitter/dry. Notes of apricot, caramel, bready malts, citrus hops. Creamy mouth-feel, good.

New batch. Lord Rear. Had this last year but remember it being quite different. Although the last year i did sit on it for a while. Orange copper pour. Very hop agressive. Lots of citrius and apricot, the signature 3 floyds hop. But this is really out of place in this ESB. Lots of carmel malt that you would find in a bitter. But doesnt blend well. I dont remember it having these hops last time.

Bottle. Pours dark ruby with a big white head. Nose isn't as strong as I'd like, but it's complex with lots of earthy hops, citrus and caramel. Deep caramel malt takes center stage in the taste, supported again by piney and citrusy hops. Great soft palate with a lively carb. Very nice ESB. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

22 oz. bottle purchased fresh from the brewery. This beer is atrociously poundable. Pours a beautiful clear copper with a frothy white head. Nose and flavor bring lovely earthen loam, fresh spicy green hop, touches of rye and beautiful bready malt balance. So nicely put together, and gorgeous, drinkable palate. An impressive American ESB interpretation.

Wish I took more notes apart from: Creamy, hoppy nose. Light medium body, just good! I recall it was.. obviously enjoyed too much to detail..
