A classic, well balanced ESB brewed with traditional East Kent Golding and Fuggles hops. There is a big, fierce earthy hop bite complemeted by a well rounded, flavorful and malty body. A very bright beer with a rich, deep amber appearance. A Pub favorite for over 18 years!

Braudog (5873) - Glenville, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 12, 2014
Draft at the brewpub. Rusty copper. Started with quite the "homebrew" impression, tasting like too much extract. But it does settle a little and becomes passable, but still mostly caramel syrup. (#8508, 10/9/2014)

burnt orange appearance. Minimal aroma. not a lot going on. Cream and some rhubarb acidity, sticky toothpaste weirdness with a lot of birch wood and some tobacco.

Ed5388 (2197) - Forked River, New Jersey, USA - AUG 2, 2013
On tap @ the brew pub. Pours a clear golden amber color with a large fluffy white head. Aroma of grain, citrus, and Belgian spice. Taste is sour citrus, caramel, and a light grassy hop bitterness.

rejtable (1399) - Ontario, CANADA - JUN 3, 2013
Cask at brewpub. Pours orange with lots of creamy head. Good notes of English breakfast tea, some biscuit or cereal. Medium creamy body with low carbonation. Nice enough.

jercraigs (8006) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 10, 2013
2013-04-28. Lightly hazy dark orange body with a small off white head. Mild aroma, light fruit, muted citrus. Flavour is a touch muddled, muted orange and hop bitterness, light leafy hop character grows in the finish. Average bodied palate, light carbonation. Just okay. On tap at the brewpub

Metalchopz (2366) - Cantley, Quebec, CANADA - APR 25, 2013
Sampled at the brewpub. Golden-copper colour with foamy lace. Lacking fruit malt, just plain hoppy. Sour tasting with mild bitterness. The best balance here is the mouthfeel, between dry and wet. Lease favorite beer here, not as well blended. Becomes a little with time.

Viper666 (2763) - Quebec, CANADA - APR 24, 2013
Dégustée en fût sur place. De couleur ambrée foncée et voilée. Nez de malt légèrement sucré aux notes rôtie, léger de houblon herbeux aux notes florales et terreuses avec des notes de pain grillé et quelques traces fruitées (agrumes et zeste). Moyenne-mince en bouche avec un pétillement moyen-doux ainsi qu’une texture légèrement huileuse. Goût légèrement amer de houblon aux petites notes florales et terreuses avec des petites notes fruitées (agrumes) lors de l’entrée en bouche auquel se rajoute rapidement un goût de grains de malt légèrement sucrés aux petites notes rôties avec des notes de pain et de biscuits puis en finale l’amertume de houblon se fait plus herbeuse et légèrement asséchante. Post-goût moyen et légèrement sec, légèrement amer de houblon herbeux aux notes florales avec un léger goût de grains de malt aux notes rôties. (17 avril 2013)

Draft @ the Brew Pub. Pint glass shows cascading carbonation in a hazy amber liquid. Lightly bitter, bitterness that lingers just slightly, some sweetness from toasted bread malt. Texture is nicely creamy and smooth. Well done ESB. Good cold or on cask. Very tasty.
