Had a taste on tap at the brewery. This is the regular ESB, 5.8 percent. Delicious, slight malt edge, balanced hops, tons of flavor.

Draft sampler at MBGF Summer08 under the name Ripper’s ESB. Poured a dark amber color with a moderate fizzy off-white head that diminished slowly with good lacing. Average spruce hop aroma. Medium body with soft carbonation. Medium bitter flavor with a medium bittersweet finish of moderate duration. Drinkable brew.

Bitter in name, APA in reality. And a dry APA at that. Pours a medium dark yellow, little bit of red tinges. Small fizzling wheat colored head. Aroma of slight hops, maybe some peppery wheat flavor. . . Begins sharp and spicy, with lots of dry clean light hops flavor. I emphasize light. More of a barley/wheat taste and even then, somewhat light. Not much really goin on here until the finish. The hops come out slightly, with a mild mix of something cascade-like. But the body is light and there is that good old american metallic bitter taste. They served it so damned cold that I didnt really let it warm. Improved slightly though towards end, maybe some malt coming out? Had sediment in it and for that I was impressed. I'll have to get it again when I'm less rushed and see if it improves upon warming to a better bitters temperature.
