COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Papsoe (25074) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JAN 17, 2006
(Bottle 65 cl) Beautiful dark amber with a small, off-white head. Fat, flowery and slightly perfumy aroma hops in the nose. Body is dominated by sweetish caramel and toffee. Quite light and very drinkable with a faint, dry, bitter whiff from the aroma hops. Doesn’t at all remind me of a British-style ESB, more like a watered-down American Barleywine. And that’s not a bad thing.... 160106

oh6gdx (22398) - Vasa, FINLAND - JUN 25, 2012
Bottled (backlog, somewhere in Stockholm). Amber colour with a big beige head that leaves some lace and is quite longlasting as well. Aroma is sweet malts along with some caramel and crystal malts, mild rye bread, nuts as well as some slight herbal and floral hoppyness. Flavour is caramel malts, floral and grassy hoppyness with some mild zestyness, fudge and ryebread. Aftertaste is sweet malts along with some zesty and floral notes.

omhper (20921) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - OCT 11, 2004
Sampled draught at Stuffed Sandwich, Greater Los Angeles.
Nut brown, creamy head. Restrained sweetness. Deep pleasant malt character with well balanced flowery hop character and pleasant orangey finish with good bitterness. And here wai I thinking that AleSmith could only excel at weirdo over-the-top style beers, then they do the best non-cask bitter I’ve ever had...
