Nice looking, reddish, copper, clear, nice head/lacing/retention. Nose is mild, malty, spicy with rye. Palate is fruity, spicy, mild, a bit hoppy. A bit high on the alcohol for the style maybe but it is good.

2013 bottle to a pint glass. Pours a nice clear mahogany color with a thick, creamy, tan head. Aroma is a toffee malt with some herbal hops. Taste is the toffee like malt with an herbal bitterness that gives way to a more grassy taste. Pretty well balanced overall. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours a clear copper with a slow to form one finger of creamy head with decent retention and good lacing. Aroma is malty and toasty with caramel and some fruit character, maybe fig. Malty toffee sweetness in taste with grassy and woody hop flavor and a light bitterness. Mouthfeel is semi creamy and medium bodied with light/medium carbonation. A good ESB with full flavor.
