Glaring copper color with a soft yielding foam of yellowed puff about a finger high. Keeps a slim skim and laces well in broken sheeting and some spotting.

Aroma is a bit off, some smallish sweet malting but has some mixed wet cardboard and some dullish hop notes detected with a faintness. The offness is upsetting, there's definately something a rye with this.

Flavors are milding, kinda sweet, dry with a soft malting and even lighter hopping. Not exactly sure what I'm tasting here, it has cardboard with a vegetable sweetness and buttery corn nuts or plain fritos without the salt aspect. Weird and not enjoyable for what is suppose to be an ESB.

Feel is thin, borderline watery, slight drying and sweetness helps keep it more lively than most macros but not heads above anything that I'd prefer.

Slightly below average here for a any beer, ESB or not. Tame and lame.
