Cask at GBBF 08. Slight hazy amber. Thin beige head. Not a great ESB, some good fruit, but no body to back it up. I expected it to be darker to reflect the style. Some US hop on end. Bit of grapefruit. Still a bit murky as I’m not sure it was 100% ready to be served.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottled. A clear, golden beer with some beige head. Hops, malt, more hops, beef-stock and some alcohol makes the aroma. The flavor is quite hoppy and piney, but is too short on malt to make it a balanced beer. It’s not bad though. It is full-bodied, and with a piney finish followed up by malt and stock. A nice beer, but a bit on the hoppy side, definately not the average English ESB. (070119)

Its ties to Bud means that you can find this quite good beer on tap all over the place. Always a reliable pick, with medium hoppiness (a bit less than you’d expect for an ESB) and good balance.
