A full-bodied lager, Esserís Best is comprised of the choicest malt and hops and sparkling, pure Wisconsin water. Brewed with an old world recipe translated from the original German, Esserís Best has a smooth, rich taste that comes from a longer lagering process. Esserís Best. Combining world-class taste and old world tradition.

noncaloric (684) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 7, 2009
Pours a clear pale amber with a full beige head. Effervescent, good head retention and lace. Aroma is faint, generically malty. Flavor is sweet light malt, honeyed, offset by just a bit of floral hops. More husky and grainy in the finish, slightly flawed here. Thin to medium bodied, mild carbonation, quite drinkable.

troyc (2870) - Illinois, USA - DEC 4, 2008
[Bottle] Pours a light brown color with a lot of beige head. Aroma is heavy on grain. The taste is grassy and sweet, with light caramel, fruit and corn notes. A crisp floral quality comes out in the finish. Average carbonation, and above average mouthfeel for the style. I actually thought this was a decent, easy drinking beer.

Beerlando (3342) - Orlando, Florida, USA - SEP 8, 2008
Pours a clear, coppery, caramel brown color. A small, frothy, cream colored head leaves skinny lines of lacing behind. The aroma shows notes of glazed biscuit, toasty caramel, brown sugar, and hints of lightly peppery, floral hops. Flavors, too, are simple but well executed for the style. Lightly toasty, stale cereal grains and caramel are balanced by weak, green, floral hops. Medium bodied and just a touch syrupy, the mouthfeel is substantial but overly carbonated and fizzy. Decent enough for a pale lager, but a pale lager nonetheless.

Simple well made lager (oxymoron?). Thirst quenching. Pretty good for what it is. Better than many macro counterparts.

Not an incredible beer, but compared to the King of Beers, also a pale lager, this one is a madman. Not the color of pee, which is always a plus. Not bad at all.

iowaherkeye (2698) - Ocean Beach, San Diego, California, USA - JUN 28, 2008
12oz bottle, no date. Clear golden with a 1/2 finger yellowish white head, fading to a thick ring and tattered film. Aroma of sweet cereal grain and some light corn. Flavor adds a bit more corn, and a tinge of grassy hops. Semi-dry finish with bitterness peaking around a 2. Light prickly carbonation with light body. Just another inoffensive pale lager not really worth seeking out.

jbuzz (770) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 2, 2008
Big 20 beer tasting at Three Cellars Milwaukee. Is this is Esserís best I am not interested in Esserís next best. Corn, very mild hops. Wet grass smell and slightly sour.

esjaygee (3903) - Oak Creek, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 1, 2008
Golden yellow with a thin white diminishing head. Aroma of sweet malts, corn and mild spices. Malted body comprised of corn and mild hops that finishes just a shade bitter and astringent. A bit watery.

phishpond417 (2088) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 29, 2008
I was both suprised and impressed with this brew. It suprised me because I didnít imagine the beer to be so full flavored, and it impressed me because it was a nicer tasting lager then imagined. Dark golden colour, full fluffy white head. Fruity aroma with pleasent biscuity malts on the palate and very rich taste.

GeneralGao (3614) - Iowa City, Iowa, USA - MAY 26, 2008
12oz bottle. Poured a light orange color with a white head that reduced over a minute or so. Aroma was of wet dog and grass. Or, if you prefer, a dog that has rolled around in wet grass. Either way, it didnít smell particularly good. There was also a whiff of apple juice. Light body and slightly sweet up front with a little bitterness at the end. Tasted of watered down toffee, dilute apple juice, and grass. Not a particularly strong beer on any front.
