2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
On cask at the brewpub. Beautiful dark orange amber pour with a thick creamy white head. Looks wonderful. Aroma is just barely hoppy with some subtle malt characteristics. Flavor is super smooth, a little aqueous, but overall kind of bland. Forgettable session beer but pretty.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Sampled on cask at brewpub and tasted while taking tour of the operations. The right smoothness coupled with a bitter finish. Hop presence keeps this from being bland, nice.

On hand pump at Cooper’s. Clear cooper color with a bitter grainy, hops aroma. Creamy. Flavor of grain, hops, and a bitter finish. Mild and tame makes it very drinkable.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft. A pretty true-to-form ESB. Dry malt aromas, tame hops, and some buttery grains. Soft palate. Clean finish. A little soapy, but appropriately American. Drinkable and not bland. Copper penny in color.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft at the Birreria Paradiso in DC. Orange amber-brown color. Nice head. Mellow carbonation and low alcohol make this one quite smooth and true to style. A creamy amber spice character/flavor. Very enjoyable. Nice fuggles hop aroma.
