3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Tea, dandelion, and honey aroma. Clear golden, thin lacing head. Hay and dandelion flavor, not as sweet as the aroma. Approaches citrus in the finish, but remains somewhat floral. More character than most ESBs, EPA if not IPA.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Eh...Typical ESB without the malty flavor. I was ready to jump all over this beer because my bottle says "Joker IPA" and IPA this isn’t. Anyhow aroma was weak. A hint of grass mixed with some stale hops are all that come out. Pour was a nice medium gold with a two finger white head. Taste was average at best. Slight lemon grass with thin tasting hops throughout. A caramel malt backbone that is weak and hard to find. Blah.
