One of the better ESB’s out there (my favorite’s Welsh ESB, but that’s really NOT an ESB). Solid malt here and some good bitterness.

UPDATED: DEC 27, 2003 Clear amber color with a frothy light beige head. Aroma is malt with a hint of citrus. Light sweet malt flavor followed by a light bitter taste. Over all, a pretty good beer.

I like this beer. At first, I thought it had kind of a weird metallic taste, but that soon disappeared. I really didn’t notice the 5.7% alcohol at all. The best aroma I have ever smelled in a beer.

Clear, light amber/orange. Thin head and lace. Nose of doughy malt, perfumey yeast and a trace of spicy hops. Creamy but thin body, decent malt profile with some lingering hoppiness but not put together all to well. Very drinkable just not interesing IMHO.

Not a bad beer considering its mass production. Decent hops, not much malt ... just doesn’t have much of a complex flavor which I prefer. I do drink it on ocassion as its usually the ’best’ beer on tap at most mainstream bars.

Nice initial floral hoppy nose and nice color. The flavor had a nice sweetness with a little bitterness, but both were too small for this style. The body was a little thin, but all in all a pretty decent beer.

A mild and fairly flavorful beer. Aroma was decent and the appearance was a good orange-amber color with a decent head that stayed. Not as bitter as I expected, in fact, not really bitter at all. An easy drinking tasteful brew.
