Gorgeously murky and tarnished color of deep rusted peachy orange with a slight cast of deeper gold within. Firm and crunchy topping of lightly yellowed foam sits about a half inch high and stays a solid amount as it sits. Lacing of all kinds sticks across the glass very well.

Clean aroma of slightly toasted malts and grains along with a small tug of sweet breadyness. Notes of grassyness, dry wood, and some pale fruits make an appearance here and there.

Taste is firm and textured with a fuzzyish tone while a light yet firm amount of pale, caramel, and toasted malts make some bread crust taking the overall. Some slight hop notes adding grassy, woody things, along with paled fruits of old apple, dull pear, and smidgeons of crunchy edged grapefruityness. Finsihes light with a light pull of woodish dryness and hop leaf bitterness.

Feel is uniquely textured with a firm bite of toasted fuzz and texture while maiantaining a decent medium body throughout its duration. A small opening in the middle area gives way to the creeping finish of dry woodyness.

A sessionable ESB with a pretty good texture, tone, body, and flavor.
