2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Amber brew with a sweet aroma with some hints of floral hops. Taste is mostly a toasted bread with slight caramel. The hops don’t really do much to improve upon that. When held on the toungue a bit there is an off metalic taste. Best to just drink it down. Overall a decent brew but not something I would want to call ESB.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Deep red-tinted amber color. Over-adequate bubbling holds a tall beige head. This foamy lace. Hoppy English malt aroma with dark toasted biscuit. Flavor starts sweet and rolls into perfectly balanced beer taste with the hops finishing up o.ly slightly bitter. Very good ESB. Other.than the alcohol content is too high at 5% I’m very impressed.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draught at Alaska Lodge (Sea-Tac Airport)
Dark amber color with compact head. Smell of cleaning products (the glass?) and some nice caramel. Strong caramel flavor with a mild animal component. Strong bitterness. Not really an ESB, more an American thing; not bad.

Dark orange pour with a white head. The aroma has some strong biscuit malt notes with a bit of grass. The flavor is very similar. I get some biscuit malt, grass and a hint of orange citrus. The bitterness level is fairly low. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation. Very nice.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
This pours a clear, dark amber color with a slight beige head. The aroma is slightly malty with a touch of bitter hops. The taste is bold with just the right amount of hops that leaves a dry after taste. This is quite a well made ESB and a very well made beer, it’s well worth giving a try!
