Anvil ESB is our interpretation of a traditional British-style pub ale. Deep amber in color, a toasty character from British malts and a touch of kettle caramelization blend seamlessly with a mild English hop profile. Its delicate balance of flavors will keep you coming back pint after pint, making it a complex creation we’re proud to call our flagship beer.

Renobob (1290) - Besançon, FRANCE - OCT 9, 2015
Bue en bouteille. Couleur ambré brun. Beau maltage, rondeur et corpulence. Et belle amertume simple. Finale plus complexe sur la vanille ou le fruit noir.

Bottle. Turner’s, Sheffield. Clear copper colour. Thin, blotchy, fresh ginger coloured head. Nose has cake fruit malts. Stewed, dark fruit. Syrupy hop. Taste is brown sugar sweet. Gentle bitterness forms. Soft, and fairly full mouthfeel. Finishes light, fruity bitter, with a syrupy sweet longer. Ok.

jc1762 (315) - Tokyo, JAPAN - SEP 13, 2015
Small taster showing dark brown. The nose shows moderately intense clean malts and tea. The palate is light bodied and well carbonated with a grainy maltiness and tea-like astringency on the finish.

Muted caramel and pine aroma, in equal proportions. Clear rust, thin yellow head. Nice malt and caramel interplay, fairly mild. Finishes a little woody. Medium to full body, easy carbonation. Well balanced, sessionable.

Mahogany toffee pour with a soapy off white head. Aroma is burnt toast, toffee and woody hop. Flavour is nice fruit and nut front end, bready caramel/toffee. Not overly sweet though. Light woody and slight resinous finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

jdjuice (475) - Kumamoto, JAPAN - AUG 30, 2015
Excellent, of course. Nice malty backbone with just the right amount of hop bitterness, done in the English style and punched up a little with an American kick but not overdone. As with their other standards, really well balanced, excellent mouthfeel, quality ingredients.

Good looking beer has a beautiful amber color and pours with a thick creamy head. It has a mild aroma. It has a really nice smokey malt flavor and is easy to swallow all together

A terrific Americanized version of the English pub ESB. Lots of toffee, caramel and toast, with a hastening hop presence and some good warming notes.
