A classic example of an ESB, where sweetness of the barley malt balances the slight bitterness provided by the Target and Golding hops. We add East Kent Goldings during secondary fermentation; this process of "dry-hopping" provides a distinct, flowery aroma to the beer. At our Greenfield Pub and Restaurant we serve this copper colored ale cask conditioned. Original Gravity: 1057

OldGrowth (3240) - the Containment Area, North Carolina, USA - JAN 2, 2006
Bottle, from Ryan & Casey’s. Ok nose, sweet. Apricot, biscuit, nutty/mealy. Clean reddish orange color, though I poured the sediment into a second glass, with little to no head or lacing. Sweet bitter flavor. Nutty, grapefruit, spice of the EKG shows up. Medium body, creamy smooth mouthfeel, bitter sweet finish, I thought it was tasty and hit all the marks of an ESB.

Eyedrinkale (3213) - Astoria, New York, USA - SEP 12, 2005
Light amber color with an appropriate sized hed. Aroma is a bit subdued with some dough and wheat. Taste is balanced nicely with the malt just a bit ahead. Mouthfeel is creamy and smooth. Hops are herbal and chewy.

MaiBockAddict (1497) - Good Beer Bar Deprived, New Jersey, USA - SEP 5, 2005
Cask at the brewpub.Reddish orange, tannish head. Slight hop and fruit nose, with a hint of licorice. Malt dominates with a hint of carmel. Sharp hop finish. The hops build through the pint and bring balance.

CamdenD (1181) - Madrid, SPAIN - JUL 15, 2005
Well made and very smooth ESB. I had this on cask at the brewery and it went down real easy. Hops on the nose and tongue, but what really made this special was just the supersmooth taste and lingering hop aftertaste. Wow. Nice job.

Hopistotle420 (1178) - Amherst, Massachusetts, USA - JUL 2, 2004
Draught @ Brass Cat, Easthampton MA: Pours a deep copper/bronze, small diminishing head, caramel, sweet malt nose. Slightly thin in body, faint malts and large bitter hops provide a bit of an unbalanced brew, but it is very quaffable none-the-less. Decent, but not exceptional. But, perhaps a more fresh sample would be ideal for a re-rate, as Im sure it is not a big seller where I had my pint. But its good to see the Peeps Pint shipping kegs about the area, woohoo!

vwsteggie (684) - Paxton, Massachusetts, USA - JUN 15, 2003
Has a nice amber color and a light hop smell. Taste is of hops and finishes slightly bitter. Overall not a bad ESB, but I expect this style to be a bit more bitter.
