Tap at Redlight. Clear brown pour with an off white head. Nice bready malt, noble euro hops in the aroma. Nice toffee, bready malt body with just a dash of earthy hops in for bitterness. Good session brew.

suprchunk (2994) - Crestview, Florida, USA - NOV 26, 2013
Creamy white head floating atop a coppery pool of beer. Plenty of lacing. Fruity malt aroma. Sweet malty flavor with a very slight metallicness. Not bad. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

glennmastrange (2824) - hobe sound, Florida, USA - FEB 6, 2015
Tap, nitro. Light aromas of bread, harbs and leaves. Head is large, cascading light tan with thick creamy lacing and is mostly lasting. Color is light brown. Flavor starts slightly acidic, then finishes lightly to moderately bitter. Palate is medium, creamy with a soft carbonation. Super easy drinking and nice tasting ESB.

Deep copper color, modest head. A little leafy and peppery in the aroma. Light to medium bodied, tobacco notes at the end. Light and easy drinking, seems very true to style.

wedgie9 (2701) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - FEB 10, 2015
Tasted on 5/26/12 from a growler, thanks to Nick. Pours clear amber with a thin white head that leaves thin lace. The nose is nice bread malt balanced by some spicy hops. The flavor is a bit more assertive with a bit of sourdough bread and more hops spice and bitterness. The body is light with average carbonation and a long sourdough bread and bitter hops finish.

Ancient rating from Hunahpus Day 2012, I recently found my tasting notes. Figured why waste good ticks. citrusy and slightly funky. but overall crisp and good malt core for an esb. sessionable for sure.

October 19, 2012 tap (cask) from the brewery. Copper pour with huge head. Malty and caramel aroma and taste was same with slight bitterness and a spicy finish. Smooth and creamy, which I like, due to the cask.

i must be drinking the wrong kind of ESBs because this one tasted off balanced and funky to me. aroma was ok, bready and mildly hoppy. but the flavor was a too hop forward, the grains and cereal notes tasted musty and overtly earthy, palate was sour, not in a good way either. bad keg maybe? probably not something i would try again.
