Spab (2304) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 27, 2013
Growler from the Toronto brewpub retail store. Pours a clear copper colour with small off-white head. Aroma is sweet fruit, biscuit and caramel. Flavour is sugar, fruity/caramelly malt and light earthy bitterness. Carbonation on the lighter side. Sessionable.

Metalchopz (2216) - Cantley, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 5, 2013
750ml bottle from the brewpub in Ottawa. Pours a clean amber colour with an off-white that is frothy, long lasting and gives out some foamy lace. Hoppy nose with fruity nose and caramel malts. The hop is a little less in the taste, but still present with some grassiness in the finish. Fruity malts mostly with a little caramel in the back. Not so much an English ESB, but a decent session brew. More of an amber ale overall.

BreWedge (305) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 2, 2013
On tap @ Mill Street Ottawa. Pours a clear light amber with a small off white head. Aroma is subtle. Maybe a little fruit. Taste is nice biscuit, bitter hop profile throughout, and some alcohol. Medium body, full and round with a medium length bitter finish. I felt the alcohol and hops overpowered the malts a little too much for my tastes. Still a nice ESB. ---Rated via Beer Buddy

Lubiere (9792) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 23, 2013
A hazed amber ESB with a thick frothy mocha head. In aroma, nice caramel with loads of pungent grassy hops, piney and resinous, nice. In mouth, a sweet smooth grainy caramel malt, grassy hops, not bad. On tap at Arrow and Loon, Jan 17, 2012.

rejtable (1238) - Ontario, CANADA - JAN 23, 2013
This one was weird for me. Pours amber with little head and some lacing. Aromas dominated with what felt like pumpkin spice to me. Didnít work for me at all.

blankboy (5979) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 13, 2012
Draught at Volo. Pours a deep orange-amber with an average size semi-lasting frothy tan head. Mild, sweet aroma of sugar, fruit, very light hops and some paper. Fruity flavour along with caramel malt, light fruity hops and a light sugary sweetness. Average bitter finish. Just O.K., mediocre. -- Rated via Beer Buddy.

MrManning (2003) - Hamilton, Ontario, CANADA - APR 17, 2011
On tap at the venerable Gambrinus Bistro. A dark and hazed copper liquid, pours a 2 finger off white froth with some lace. Citric pithy nose has caramel malts, toffee, and English style herbal hops. Somewhat sweet with medium bitterness that lingers.Bitter finish is a bit metallic and somewhat earthy sweet. Ok.

Sammy (8421) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - APR 17, 2011
Poor for style. On tap at Gambrinus. Orange coloured body, lacey. Some peach but a harsh beer, horrible biterness. Dirty malts.

on tap at gambrinus. thx adil! burnt orange with an off white head. soft nose with balanced hop and malt components. really solid esb flavour. not something to session at 6.3% but a very nice english ale. worth a try.
