COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our interpretation of the great British extra special bitter, but offered with the twist of a cascading nitrogen pour! It is a harmonious blend of caramel malt flavors with floral hop aromas, complemented by the smooth nitro mouth feel. A house favorite.

Draft Flight 3/23/05 (Brewery)-Pours a clear amber with a small head. Aroma of caramel, grains, and toffee. Taste of the same. This medium bodied brew was not too bad.

A very nice ESB. Pours a lovely red with a thick white head. Smells creamy, with some caramel. More caramel in the taste, along with some roasted almonds. Not too bitter of a finish. Had on tap at the brewery. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

brokensail (10916) - Orange County, California, USA - OCT 13, 2012
Amber colored beer with a white head. Some toasted malt aroma, a little bit of floral and earthy hops, and good bread notes too. There’s a light yeast character in the background. The flavor has an interesting fruitiness, some floral hops, a light bitterness, and some toasted malt. A bit of bread sweetness, too.
