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.

Slowly drink several during a day and the last is as great as the first. Wish I could this beer in Texas. We typically bring back 15 cases after our summer trips to Wisconsin. There are many beers with more flavor but none that are as drinkable if you are having several. The other beer we bring back plenty of is Spotted Cow. Say, if the new govenor would relax the rules for exporting of Wisconsin beers , you guys could be back in the black pretty quick

Unspectacular aroma with nothing standing out. Golden appearance with just a little cloudiness... Beautiful! Wonderful malted barley taste with good hoppy flavor. Stay on your tongue for a good long time just to remind you of the great taste. A great tasting beer!

Esserís is one of the lesser known and smaller Wisconsin beers. It pours a golden amber color with a good scent of malts and hops. Upon tasting there is a good full flavor taste that is long lasting and delicious. I was certainly surprised by itís taste. A must try for any Wisconsin beer lover.

One of the better Pale Lagerís I have ever had. Lotís of flavor, rich, and heavier than you would expect.

On tap at Warner Park, home of the Madison Mallards. This is the best beer available at the ballpark, and that includes several Great Dane offerings (Crop Circle Wheat, Aaronís 755 Amber, Mallardís Ale). Therefore, it is not only Esserís Best, but Warner Parkís and the Duck Blindís best. Smells like a cream ale, but relatively faint aroma with some hops. Reddish gold color with a cream, off-white head and nice lace. However, it was served in a plastic beer cup. Nice flavor. Has a hop profile, but not piney at all. ESB-like. Session quality. Very underrated.

From a 12 oz. twist cap long neck brown bottle with no freshness date. Made a decent appearance, poured a clear reddish golden with a foamy white head that settled into a thin lacing, very minimal amount of sticking, good carbonation. Had a flour bready and yeasty nose with a light grassiness at the edges. A crisp and smooth lightish medium bodied mouth feel, above average drinkability. Slightly sour bready and yeasty taste with a light grassy hoppiness and a dry bready finish with a little lingering grassy in the palate. I thought this was a pretty enjoyable lager, light and refreshing, ideal for the summer.

Soft German style aroma emanating from the thick golden body. The flavor is pretty bland but smooth and has slighty sweet malty finish. Very drinkable and mellow, but not much character.

Light yellow amber color, aroma heavy grassy , light clean slighty malt taste. Gets points for not having any noticable off tastes. Taste however did not deliver the promise of the aroma

Bottled. Poured a clear, cool shade of light-medium orange with a short cap of white head. The aroma was soft with some caramel and light fruits represented.. light floral accents.. pleasant. The flavor had sweet pale and caramel with fainter light fruits and a bit of orange.. honey and light adjuncts on the finish.. rather tasty. Lighter-bodied with OK balance.. creamy carbonation and a lightly bitter finish.. refreshing.

Picked up a single 12-oz bottle at Flanaganís in Appleton, Wisconsin. Pours a light coppery amber brew with a fast dissolving white head that leaves behind a fine film and white bubbly ring. Aroma of light caramel malt, some corn grits, roasted nuts and flowery hops. Taste is medium bodied, very light carbonation with a sour dough and slight bitter flavor. Finish is nutty and malty with a mild bitter aftertaste that slowly disappears. Nice to see another Wisconsin Pre-Prohibition label has been revived.
