Middle-of-the-road. I can see why some would consider this unlike the standard ESB; the color is certainly light. ’Hop spiciness’ is right; it’s not floral or grassy but rather lightly, how shall I put it, piquant. Eminently drinkable, though.

Bottle, first try. Color light orange-red, with big but quick-disappearing head; aroma incredible, with too many fruits bursting through to count (a few that stick: raspberry, grapefruit, cherryapple) plus a nice hint of caramel malt; flavor an excellent balance of flowery citrus & bitter hops with enough of the aforementioned sweet malts to give it body (though it could be just a bit thicker); finish is a little on the quick side. Overall, another fine product from one of the USA’s great unknowns.

An ESB? I don’t know about that. Pretty inoffensive, but, not much else. The taste fades quickly. I guess you could call it a ’lite’ ESB.

UPDATED: SEP 25, 2003 Rerate: I take issue with the 'Organic' label in general -- beer is almost all organic. Distinct malt and caramel aroma with good hops. Notes of blackberries in a medium bitter brew. I liked this a lot better the 2nd go-round. Good palate for a bitter, and very drinkable.

This beer had a very unique malt nuttiness that was very enjoyable.
