This ESB is born of English traditions with West Coast influence, and perfected in Placer County, California. It has plenty of attitude, but its brilliance is in the balance of Old World and New World malt and hops. The name says it all.

On tap at the brewery. Pours one finger of head on a clear straw colored body. The aroma is like a candy factory and pine trees. Interesting, but nice. The taste is mostly a moderately dry bitter flavor. Good balance and straightforward. The texture is crisp with moderate carbonation. Overall a solid ESB.

This beer has a beautiful copper color. It has a smokey malty aroma and flavor. I get a subtle flavor of caramel also. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

~Sweet bready caramel malt aroma with medium toastiness. Mouth watering malty aroma. ~Pours a clear golden amberish color with small lasting wispy white head. ~Rich malty roasted toast flavor with caramel sweetness and good dose of earthy bitter hops. ~Medium bodied with medium CO2, lingering earthy bitterness. ~Very Good ESB. A bit too bitter in my opinion. Really enjoyed the maltiness. Glad this brewery is close to home.

krumbum (523) - truckee, California, USA - MAY 30, 2014
Nutty and alcoholic smelling. Clear amber with very thin head. Syrupy bitter followed by a nutty bitter. The bitter keeps on well after the sip.

Bomber from Total Wine in Folsom, CA. Pours hazy copper/amber with a slight foamy beige head. Roasty malt aroma. Med body. Flavor is fruity hop over roasty malt. Ill agree it fits the style. Nice to drink.

marcus (6700) - Sacramento, California, USA - OCT 20, 2013
On tap at Whole Lotta Brews Festival. Pours light amber with a thick off-white head and a citrus and toffee aroma. There is a light pale malt flavor with a hint of bitterness.
