Can in Fl. Make up your mind. Esb or amber. Minimal bitters. Minimal caramel. No chocolate like one person thought they noted. Sort of flat. Avg. Boring

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours clear copper with a small tan head. Nose is light caramel and some floral hops. Flavor is much bolder with a big hit of brown malts and moderate hop bitterness. Finish is a little bittersweet and spiced with licorice. A little odd and very English.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Dark, rusty brown and clear. Good label and cap on a standard brown longneck. Powdery, somewhat sweet, malty aroma. Very nice. Dark molasses notes over a sweet, tannic, leathery brew. Medium body, though it seems like it ought to be heavier. I didn’t care for the finish particularly - there was a strange, toasted sugar bitterness that didn’t fade well. I’d characterize this as a great beer with flaws - it’s right down my alley, but with a couple of noticeable missteps. ABC Liquors, Bull Run.

Bottle. Pours a dark amber with small tan head. Malty aroma with cereal and biscuit notes. Bold caramel malt flavor with this. A bit toasty. Lingering sweet finish. Pretty good.

Very very good esb. I am solidly impressed. Great solid British mild that accentuates the malts.
