With its rich malty taste, deliciously full body and clean crisp finish, Weyerbacher ESB is truly a delectable libation. Boasting a fragrant hop aroma and glowing with a reddish-amber color, our ESB is arousing yet well balanced. It's the perfect companion for good friends, good food, or just about any occasion.

TAR (2691) - Marshall (Asheville area), North Carolina, USA - MAY 15, 2002
Hazy orange-copper liquid. Semi-rocky head. Aroma is dominated by crystal malt, followed by caramel, red apples, and nuts. Vinous twang first comes to mind as beer hits the tongue, then comes a nice toastiness with some mustiness and herb hints. I find this a bit overly carbonated for the style. Palate is watery and bland. Hops are only slightly detected. Cheers, Venom.

Very malty taste, very rich, crisp, above average body, floral aroma & aftertaste, very well balanced, kept a pretty good head for it being out of the bottle, very good ESB

VENOM (941) - Connecticut, USA - APR 24, 2002
Unfiltered hazy copper with suspended flecks. Foamy off white head. Moderate-light carbonation. Roasted and chocolate malt aroma. Crisp medium body, with a good dose of malt flavor. Cocoa and light roasted caramel aspects. Nicely balanced with earthy hops and a very slight fruit edge. Gets maltier and deeper as it sits and warms. Finishes mellower and sharply maltier. Tastes different than previous versions but still very good.

ravidesai (978) - Bombay, INDIA - MAR 21, 2002
well balanced ESB. amber/red color with a bubbly off white head, with a floral hoppy aroma. taste was bitter but mellow, has a buttery smoothness to it. while hoppy the malt flavors are evident and become more evident in the later sips as the bitter hops fade. good palate but a touch over carbonated. Another good beer from this underrated brewery.

BillKismet (3863) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JAN 4, 2002
This beer was absolutely lovely, though it is hard for me to accept this as a genuine ESB. The hops bitterness was borderline imperceptible. This beer has a pleasant honey-smoothness that makes it incredibly drinkable.

Good stuff! Nice hops, not overpowering the malt.

tbookman (618) - Ephrata, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 10, 2001
A good flavor - but the bottles Iíve had have been WAY over-carbonated. AFter I poured & let it sit in a mug for 15 minutes or so, it was good. Mild bitterness to balance the malt. Donít know if I got a reject case of CO2-Overkilled bottles or what.

A very good ESB.
