COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Smooth in texture and rich in taste, this traditionally inspired English Ale is celebrated for its classic roasted malt flavor and amber color. English East Kent Goldings hops give our Alehouse ESB a spicy aroma.

this beer is a nice break from the plethora of wheat beers at Pyramid. Itís a decent esb, or session beer, light malty profile, medium brown in color, ever so slightly bitter finish."

Pyramid Ales--Alehouse ESB Ale--Brown 1998 12 oz. Bottle. 5.60% ABV (3.25 / 5.0) ESB--Good Malt, but a touch fruity. Pyramid Ales--Alehouse ESB Ale--Purple 1999 12 oz. Bottle. 5.60% ABV (3.0 / 5.0) ESB--Light clear caramel color. Pours easy due to light body. Light tasty malt body missing rich graininess of best ESBís. Slightly fruity, but pleasingly so. Very mild hop character. Sampled 11/7/1998.

RSRIZZO (1868) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - NOV 29, 2007
Had this beer on 6/23/2000. Aroma is a sweet malt scent. Color is a brownish orange with light carbonation and head. Taste roasted and bitter. Starting with a light/medium body it goes down crisp. Finish is a mild malt flavor with an odd hop flavor and bitterness. Overall I think it fits itís category well but isnít a beer I would not go out of my way to drink.

jtw (1106) - farmington, Michigan, USA - JUN 24, 2004
strong malty nose, maybe a little stale (my bottle might have been old...) deep copper color, good flavor of dark malts and hops. a little thin, and the finish is astringent and sour. not bad, but not great either.

That's a damn good ESB. Hints of chocolate malts, really good flavor here.

Indra (2641) - Overland Park, Kansas, USA - AUG 2, 2003
Faint aroma, some spicy, herbal British hop, orange citrus and lightly sweet maltiness. Dark amber color, some sedimentation, with a fading head. Flavor profile was a little plain, definite Goldings hop flavors and a touch of toasty, caramel malt sweetness. Finish sees a slight amount of hop bitterness, some tea leaf flavors. I didn't find this one very inspiring.

Decent bitter with a nice head. Good copper color. Nice bitters in the nose and in the taste. Finishes dryly. Nice finish.
