COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The first product to become available from Cheshire Valley is an Unfiltered ESB. This product is 4.6% abv with medium-high bitterness supported by toasted malt flavours. The hop flavour is moderate but balanced by a caramel malt sweetness. This beer is excellent by itself, however it also goes well with cheese, BBQ and curry.

On tap: puts a lightly hazed amber ale in the glass with a decent 2 finger off white cap that laces well. Moderate carbonation. Aromas of caramel malts, some citrus and piney hops. Tastes much like it smells - caramel sweet malts are balanced off with a spicey/citrus hop mix...light fruity esters....sandy mouth feel….finish is clean with a building bittering from piney hops. A good drinker...lots of flavor but mild and easy to quaff.

Sammy (8910) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 27, 2009
Volo English cask fest 2009. Another fine offering by Cheshire Valley. Golden yellow colour and lots of lace. An IPA-style bitterness, with some nuttiness. Nice interpretation and works on cask.

Pint in a long week at Grey Cup 2012. Hazy dark amber. Light fruitiness in aroma and flavour. Some expected light yeastiness since it is unfiltered.

robinvboyer (3254) - Sturgeon Falls, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 13, 2010
On Tap at Volo. Aroma of light tropical fruit, and quite a bit of cereal, and hay. Flavor was bitter, and the sweetness was a little too fruity , and kinda threw things off. Not bad, but a little odd.
