English Special Beer. Brewed with toasted malts to give a biscuity, toasted flavor typical of this English style ale. A rich amber colored beer, with toffee, figs, and ripe-fruit notes. Delicious - Refreshing!

On draught at Santiam Brewing. Amber color. Aroma is biscuit, sweet grapes, and fig. Taste is fig, grape, biscuit, and light grass hops. A nice representation of an ESB.

Lucky to find a local ESB, and it greeted me with a malty nose and frothy, creamy head. Its got a smooth, silky texture and mouth-feel bringing sweet honey and toast flavors. Those nicely balance with the hoppyness of a traditional English Bitter. Then comes a subtle hint of ripe apples or pears. Id like one right now with Chicken and cheesy potatoes.

Pint glass poured from a growler poured today at the brewhouse. $12 Classic good looks to this dark amber beer with a nice thick eggshell white head. pretty malt driven aroma..bready,caramel little nutty Taste is more substantial with all of the above plus a nice English hop profile at the back of the mouth..some tobacco//nice Good mouthfeel very understated and to style as far as carbonation. Nice ESB will be back for more
