This richly flavored, full-bodied bitter is copper colored, with a slight fruity aroma and a balanced malt/hop character. Fuggles and Kent Goldings hops are used for a dry finish.

12 oz bottle from Beer Army The ESB poured a deep amber with a normal head and modest lacing. The aroma of roasted malts on the nose. The taste of burnt malt greets your taste buds. More malt than hop on the nose and palate. The body is medium to light with average carbonation. This is an interesting beverage to drink. You experience an earthy taste that is intriguing. My first from this Asheville brewer.

Bottle. Very good esb. Nice and malty with a dry hop finish. If you want an ESB, this one is a very good choice. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Cybercat (3516) - Georgia, USA - MAY 24, 2013
Pours a pretty amber-mahogany with a fairly thick pale tan head. Aroma has malty, caramel and subtle malty notes. Flavor has a strong malty core plus woody hop and caramel notes, not so bitter. Texture is fizzy, if thin. OK, if not outstanding.

Poured dark caramel brown with a thin, slightly off-white head. Aroma of caramel, soggy bread, light coffee. Flavor is malty sweet with hops shining through late. I prefer a hoppier ESB but this isnít bad.

Finally! Green man in 12 oz bottles! Pours a hazy copper with thin lacy foam. Aroma of bread, coffee, chocolate, and apple. Great smooth taste with sweet caramel and toffee. Finishes with a bit of roast and even a hint of smokiness. Very drinkable yet complex. Excellent beer in a little seen style in the US craft scene. I love to see well done British styles of beer.

Gold brown pour. Smells and taste like roasted coffee malt and a little feuitiness. I like it.

BarleyandVine (39) - Stockbridge, Georgia, USA - FEB 26, 2013
Nice looking, but little aroma. Flavor is spot on with good hop flavors and supporting malt character. A bit of smokiness that was surprising.

deyholla (7024) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - FEB 2, 2013
Sampled at the brewpub. Pours a clear deep amber with a gray head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has a nice earthy grain note with a bit of light grass but mainly earthy grains. Flavor is similar with earthy grains ANG grass with a hint of resin and sweetness.

Kinz (3365) - Glen Allen, Virginia, USA - JAN 8, 2013
Beer #10 Asheville trip. Medium amber in appearance, nice head. Light aroma of caramel. Flavor is light caramel, with some pleasant fruitiness. Dry on the finish. I usually donít go much for ESBís, but this was quite solid. Sampled at Jack in the Wood on tap.
