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.

fidelis83 (2136) - Clinton, Iowa, USA - FEB 23, 2013
Pours clear copper with a tall, creamy, beige head. Aroma of caramel, English yeast, toast, apple skins, spicy and planty hops. Flavor is very toasty, some caramel, cereal, planty, citrus and spicy hops and some herbal hops and mineral notes to the finish. Nice, neutral to creamy mouthfeel, with moderate, slightly sharp carbonation. Pretty good, easy going stuff.
