Pours a medium caramel colour with a thin slightly off-white head. Aromas are caramel and toffee. Tastes are strong caramel malts, toffee and a surprising light sweetness in the background. Overall this is no Fullers ESB, but it isn’t a bad effort in the category.

Draft - Toffee and a very light twig. Hazy gold with a good beige head. Toffee, toasted malts and light twig. Dry and bitter finish. Nice.

Where and how: on tap at Volo
Aroma malty side with nice hop backing. Proper ESB set up.
Appearance :
Top: medium top.
Base: fine haze on amber.
Palate : clean ,easy going, bit too easy...
Taste: malts well paired with its hops. Balanced.
Other notes nothing screaming here, just solid old school brew.

At the Kitchener beer and ribs show. Pours hazy copper. Taste has caramel/toffee, spices, with a bitter finish. A little odd tasting, somehow, but drinkable.

blankboy (6226) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 9, 2014
[Cask at Mugshot Tavern] Pours a hazy dark amber with a small lasting bubbly white head. Aroma is fruity along with bready malt and light earthy hops. Flavour of caramel malt, fruit, light hops and a moderate bitter finish. Average bodied. It’s good but not really my thing. A fine beer though.

Looks great in the glass! A hazy, light brownish colour with a slightly tan coloured head. There is a nutty and toasty aroma that comes off of this one and follows through in the taste. A nice, subdued hop character shows up in the finish. Great after work beer.

jercraigs (8013) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 18, 2014
2014-05-09. Crisp copper amber body with a nice white head and lace. 3+ Sweet fruity caramel malt aroma. Similar flavour, sweetish fruity malt. Smooth average plus bodied palate, soft carbonation suits it. Relatively non-descript but decent take on the style, I suspect I might enjoy this one more on a different day. On tap at Volo, Toronto

Sammy (8850) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 9, 2014
esb on cask at Bar Volo. Very minimum hops. Good colour and some lace. Not so drinkable because no flavour to attract me.

As far as ESB style beers go, this is one of the more interesting ESB’s I have tasted with more flavour to it. good session beer!

Bendrixian (1162) - Canadiana, Ontario, CANADA - APR 26, 2014
Can. Slightly hazy and off-white head. Malty and caramel sweets aroma, earthiness and slight floral hoppy note. Medium body, some roast bitterness and caramel, balanced brew. Easy going with a bit more body than others out there but boring if you asks me.
