On draught at Hopworks. Hoppy aroma and deep amber in color. Taste is. Roasted and toasted malts and oats. Finishes with a light bread like sweetness. A favorite everyday HUB beer.

Deep amber pour with a thick tan head. Very intense, spicy hop nose with a bit of resin. Very aromatic nose with a touch of caramel malt backing it up. Great-balance with enough UK-type hop aroma to actually warrant the name ESB. Well-done.

This was a great example of a ESB. Nice malty body that was sweet but well balance bitter. A little bit of oat creamyness with slightly floral green hop taste.

This is a really promising brewery and they made a great beer out of a style I find often to be a bit bland at most times. Cask Conditioned... Poured dark red with a soapy, white head. Not much aroma, just some faint malt. Smooth and bread like hops that give way to mild malt and a soapy aftertaste.
