Bottle. Pours a slightly hazy amber color with a moderate head. A little malty in the nose, but not bad. Interesting. A little bitter, but easy to drink.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Quite surprised I had never rated this before. Pint on tap at Black Dragon in Woodland, CA. The aroma has some spicy hop character. Becomes lightly floral with a little cereal maltiness, too. Decent nose. Simple, and straight-forward. Mildly hazy copper body with a creamy off-yellow head and good lacing present. Starts with citrus and floral hop flavors, before this becomes grainy and cereal-like in the middle. Finishes with moderate spicy hop flavoring. Decent.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a golden straw color and holds a nice fluffy, white head. This ESB is a lighter, more golden color than the traditional copper color English ESB. The aroma is that of a traditional English ESB with distinct deep yeasty tones, but this one has a wave of floral, citrusy hops. I also get a slight fusel aroma since this ESB comes in at 6.8%. The taste is surprisingly maltier and more fruity than appears combined with bursts of citrus from the hops. It does have quite the lingering hoppy bite, which differs from a traditional ESB, but it isnít overwhelming. This is a close relative of the traditional English ESB, and one of the best that Iíve ever drank.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Numerous bottles. Definitely an Americanized ESB. Lightly spicy, sharper grassy hoppy notes, light malt, but a bit hop forward. A little boozy and sweet in the finish.
