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.

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

A good beer, not their best, but quite drinkable. Nice malt nose, and some hop presence.

Terminus (3242) - Las Cruces, New Mexico, USA - MAR 24, 2002
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

Light brown gold color, medium head. A light bodied ale. Milder flavor, nice mild hop bitterness. Nice malts, slightly sweet. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is slightly bitter

Extremely quaffable, as befits the style. Good with pizza.

Gregory (357) - Pullman, Washington, USA - JUL 14, 2002
Not real impressed with this one. There are much better ESBís in the style. Nice amber color, flavor is sweet, and rich. the palate is light, I didnít really find any spices in the brew, pretty basic in my opinion.

jtw (1098) - 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.

JMerritt (1803) - Macomb, Illinois, USA - FEB 2, 2002
Nice golden brown color, decent head. Aroma had a fruity, malt thing going on. Flavor was ok, but was followed with a strong alcohol aftertaste. I didnít like that.

Merc (313) - Pullman, Washington, USA - JUL 10, 2002
Indistinctive malty aroma, similary flavour. Very smooth and drinkable, but otherwise unremarkable. In my area the Alaskan and Hales ESBs are just as avaliable and much better.

A nice malty nose with some hop character. Well rounded flavor with a smooth finish.
