On tap at Rock Bottom Minneapolis.
Served in a pint glass with a finger of beige head. Decent retention with some splattered lace left. Color is a copper amber.
Aroma: British pale malts. Some grapefruit citrus. Floral hops. Fairly malty.
Taste: Much like the nose, it starts out with some British flavored pale malts. Then I get the same grapefruit citrus followed by some earthy hops.
Mouthfeel: Bitter and smooth. Medium bodied with a medium amount of carbonation. Ends a little sticky.
Overall, I wasn't the biggest fan of this esb. It wasn't as hoppy and bitter as I was expecting it to be. Seemed a bit malty.
Serving type: on-tap

Appearance: Growler, poured into a pint glass. A nice dark copper brown with little to no head on it. Pours very smooth.
Smell: A nice strong bitter smell, not too overpowering, with a nice hop undertone.
Taste: I first tried this at the brewery and was leary on it due to it was an ESB, however, I was very pleasantly surprised with how all the ingredients combined and nothing overpowered the other. Has a nice bitter to it, but the kind that made me want another drink.
Mouthfeel: It's very smooth in the mouth due to a lack of lots of carbonation. There is a bitter hoppy feel to it, but it didn't get stronger or weaken.
Overall: Overall I was very pleased with this ESB. Enough so I bought 2 growlers of it, and I would definetly buy this beer again.

Poured an excellent copper color with very good head and lacing throughout. Very nice hoppy scent, slight citrus tones and a bit of Earthy hops. Excellent malt flavor with a great citrus hop finish. Goes down extremely smooth, I could have had several of these at one sitting.
