COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Winner of a Bronze Medal in the World Beer Cup, Blue Point’s ESB is a traditional English style ale made with 2-row pale and English crystal malt. The malt of this full-bodied ale is balanced by copious amounts of English hops. Both Kent Goldings and Fuggles are used to impart a rich hop taste. Crack open a fresh jug of ESB, slice off a piece of tasty Gouda, sit back, and enjoy this unapologetic, mouth-puckering bitter handcrafted ale

Nuffield (3673) - Roseville, Minnesota, USA - JUN 1, 2003
Pours a lovely inch-thick head on a full pint--frothy on top but dense at the border with the slightly hazy, chestnut brown body. Wonderful aroma, like a strawberry "Orange Julius" drink (if you happen to know that old chain of frothy fruit-drink makers). First tastes are of quality hops, full and fragrant. But the body is watery thin, a massive disappointment, and as the beer warmed it provided a weak finish as well. (hand-pull cask at Gingerman, NYC)
