COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Envy is the perfect balance between malt and hops. Not too dry nor too sweet, it is a full-bodied and complex beer without being overly heavy. The dried fruit notes derived from rich and earthy British malts and slightly higher fermentation temperatures conjure flavors reminiscent of an old-world ESB. Compare it to the last amber you had and youíll know why we call it ENVY. IBU: 25.9

Pours quite red. Smell is nutty bread, burnt sugar and caramel. Taste is similar and nicely bittered from the burnt flavors but not hoppy at all. Very easy to drink with a sweet burnt bready and nutty flavor which is a bit dry and not cloying at all. I enjoyed it enough to order a second pint. Definitely a good, and easy drinking amber that Iíd happily get again.

A nice, tidy amber with some good nutty notes -- very accessible. Iím not sure itís quite big enough to be an ESB -- I think itís more in league with Saint Arnoldís Amber, Live Oak Big Bark, and Fat Tire. Stop your friend from ordering a Shiner Bock next time, and get him/her one of these instead!

Poured out a stupid tree brown, light but sturn foam .. . some light bitterness, some maple maltiness and a weird fruit.. . swollen eyes .. . OK stuff but needs work .. . But I am who I am. - Yeah letís pretend you arenít who you are and just try to attract a woman.

Deep clear amber with an off-white head. Aroma of fall leaves, and twigs. Tight malty flavor with 30% hops in the finish. Full body and flavor. Too bad this cant be the default amber íround the world.

Sampled at Texas Beerfest. Pours a clear amber with a small off white head. The aroma is sweet raisin malt and caramel. Medium mouthfeel with light malt and brown sugar and nice sweet finish. Easy to drink, a good ESB from CBC.

GABF 2011. Clear dark amber with a frothy light tan head. Aroma of toffee, English honey malt, big cereal grains. Flavor has nice English toffee malts with cereal grains, soft floral bitter hops, balancing nicely. A little on the burnt side, and on a medium body. Average, but not shabby.

Bottle. Pours a very dark amber -- almost red -- with a fine-grained, cream, short head. Nose is apple, apricot, tea, and a touch of smoke. Definitely ESB-like; thereís smoke on the tongue, along with oolong, light rye, and spice. Not much sweetness at all. Some bitterness, but itís kept in check. Easy to drink, with a prolonged but subtle finish. I like this.
