Breeches ESB is a flavor rich, malty, and hoppy English bitter style ale. It’s sweet with a malty flavor that tastes of apples and caramel malt. Along with that is a light hop flavor and smell with a clean crisp bitterness. True to the style, Breeches ESB is slightly less carbonated than other Blue Pants offerings and is also available in casks for use with a beer engine or for events.

Suttree (6075) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - OCT 13, 2013
Sampled at the 2013 Knoxville Brewer’s Jam. Orange with a white head. Smells citrusy. Taste is stale bread (in a good way) and citrusy hops. Tasty, seems more like an American Pale than an ESB.

Itzjerm (2296) - Taft, Tennessee, USA - MAY 28, 2012
An average beer which taste like the other beers they have out there. I would not really call this an ESB. Nothing very special. Its okay at best. Mild aroma, similar hop profile and yeast to other beers which makes it middle of the pack.
