1/30/2008: Welsh ESB pours a golden orange color. It has a medium to large beige-colored head that is floamy and deposits lots of lacing residue from the top to the bottom of the glass. The aroma is like sweet almond paste. The beer has flavors of amaretto in the front and then some green apple in the finish. It is dry with a moderately bitter finish. It also has a medium body and soft and smooth texture. This beer is definitely not a typical ESB and is just OK overall.

16.9 fl. oz. bottle (6% a.b.v.). Rating #232 for this beer.

lithy (2996) - Capital of Appalachia, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 20, 2009
Dark red-brown with a thick off white loose foam. Grassy aroma, caramel, toffee and fruit. Taste is caramel, fruity and sweet malt, very earthy hops, grass, hay.

Pours fairly dark with a nice 1 inch head with some lacing. Taste is not as good as the aroma. The nose is caramel and brown sugar the taste very smooth with a sweet finish.

MrRoss (646) - Delta, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 13, 2009
Certainly not your typical ESB. This poured a frothy white head of small volume to top off an excellent and very dark copper coloured body which, by the way, was very well carbonated. A fine aroma of both hops and malt treated the nose. Taste was just grand, with not a lot of hop but more malt and I guess the toffee/caramel as well. Mouthfeel was just smooooth, with a moderately sweetish finish.

NDbeerdrinker (166) - Virginia Beach, Virginia, USA - JUN 11, 2009
Pours a reddish brown with a thin tan head. Lots to pick up in the aroma. Caramel, dark fruits, brown sugar. Taste is not as great as the aroma. Dry, dirty earth taste is prevalent. Also some toffee and maltiness. Just a decent beer.

Pours amber with thin white head. Aromas of malts, caramel. Flavors of toffee and roasted stone fruit. Slightly bitter finish but nothing too overpowering.

alexanderj (3311) - Branson, Missouri, USA - MAY 15, 2009
Bottle. A pretty appealing color. Reddish, dirty brown with an nice looking khaki, medium sized head. Aroma was quite distinct; toffee, toasted and buttered bread, fruit, earth and apples. An interesting beer, quite unexpected. Pretty dry and bready; toffee, fruit with some earthy/spice in the finish. Some apples as well. Not the biggest fan of this one.

Handdrawn at Cricketeer Arms. Really nice. Not nearly as bitter tasting as I thought it would be. Nice sweet toffee smell. Pretty sweet taste. I could drink this all day.

Immy (1955) - Virginia Beach, USA - MAR 16, 2009
500ml bottle. Clear dark amber with a light beige head. Looks to be well carbonated. Nice malty nose, caramel, toffee, earth and a bit of fruitiness - pretty complex. Malty with some sweet fruitiness, the earthiness from the nose is there but takes a back seat. Excellent sheet lace. The earthy bitter comes on for the lingering finish. This is a pretty solid brew!

A nice ESB. Not too bitter and almost sweet with a rich butterscotch flavor.
