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!

On tap at the brewpub. This was poured into a pint glass. The appearance was a glossy hazy orange with a slight transparency running about it. Slim white bar pour’s kind of head coats the top. The smell had that sweet ESB-ish apple I normally associate with the style with an undercarriage of glazed of caramel malts to balance nicely. The taste was there enveloping the prior flavors to balance. There’s barely any aftertaste nor finish but that’s okay given it’s an ESB. On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a fairly decent sessionability about it. Carbonation runs smooth to give off a nice creamy texture typically associated with the style. Overall, as an ESB it works and I wouldn’t mind having again with some fish n’chips.

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.

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.
