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.

decent beer, but not very bitter like it should be. Good malt presence, but a boring finish. my sample was old, so that maybe the reason it wasnít that good

Headbanger (2987) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - JUN 27, 2012
12oz bottle 6/23/00 -Pours a brownish orange with a small tan head. Aroma of malt, caramel, and hops. Taste of the same. This light to medium bodied brew was not bad.

Gusler (2653) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - MAR 27, 2001
A good beer, not their best, but quite drinkable. Nice malt nose, and some hop presence.

Indra (2569) - 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.

I expected this to be better. Word on the street has Pyramid in some financial trouble. I hope we donít lose another brewery.

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 (1847) - 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.
