Pours a slightly hazy copper with a 2 finger, creamy off white head that has great retention and leaves nice lacing. Aroma of citrus, planty and spicy hops, earthy spice, toast and a touch of caramel sweetness. Flavor is nicely spicy and citrusy up front, followed by some toast, biscuit, a little caramel, englishy yeast and some herbal, pine and bitter citrus notes to the finish. Surprisingly light and crisp body for 6.8%, moderate carbonation. Some boozy slickness comes out as it gets pretty warm, but not much and I may not have noticed had I not seen the ABV%. Damn tasty ESB, really hides its alcohol.

Bottle; poured a rich Amber color with a small off white head. Aroma of nuts, caramel and maybe veggies. Maybe a bit off, but not bad. Nutty and earthy, but far from bitter BVery (11239) - Plymouth, Minnesota, USA - MAR 31, 2015
Tap at Schlafly in the STL airport. Golden pour with a small white head. Very good for the style - bready and slightly sweet. decimak (2) - Newark, Delaware, USA - MAR 11, 2015 does not count
Pleasant orangeish brown color, short lived head. Smell is slightly citrus. Taste is bready, a tiniest bit dark with the citrus from earlier still detectable. bagalagalaga (161) - Indiana, USA - MAR 8, 2015
Was a little put off at first because it was not at all like other ESBs and that was really what I was in the mood for. Much more fruity, lightly citrus tastes and aroma than any other ESB I’ve had. All in all a good one though, if you want something pretty crisp and with notes of fruit instead of overwhelming lemon like a shandy. Roonai (305) - - FEB 22, 2015
Lemon, dried fruits and malts- big fan compared to what I am used to getting when I orderan"esb"- often watered down. Still not my favorite STYLE but still decently solid
