2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Big thanks to JHop for sending this my way. Rather bland aroma, some light malt accents though nothing great. Taste is of sweet malts and some grain, typical of this style. Ending is sweet, no accents.

UPDATED: JUL 4, 2006 Clear light copper color with a medium frothy white head. Aroma of sweet malt. Very light sweet chocolate malt with some floral hops in the end overall a very bland flavor, not quite what I’d expect of an ESB. Thanks to Numenor for trading for this weyerbacher brew.

Pours a medium clear copper color with a large amount of froathy offwhite head. Aroma is a bit malty and stale, kinda reminds me of yuengling smell. Flavor is sweet and smooth with a bit of a mellow hop undertone. Overall, good for warm summer night.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a translucent golden amber with a larger foamy off white head that left some lacing and stuck around a bit. Aroma was a sweeter malt and lighter orange citrus balance. A bit light with some grains coming through and a spice that I can’t quite pinpoint although I don’t think any spices were really added to this beer. Flavor is also sweet and malty but has a decent hop bitterness. I read in an article that Weyerbacher is done with making this beer...if thats the case RIP.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
12 oz bottle. Pours a clear light amber body under a one finger fizzy beige head. A few lazy streams of bubbles rising from the bottom of the glass. Aroma is very light with a definate husky/grainy component. A little diacetyl as well. Flavor is pretty thin with some light crystal malt, minimal hop bitterness, and a little of that diacetyl on the finish. Mouthfeel is light bodied and thin with moderate fizzy carbonation. Overall, less than impressive, and not the best example of the style.

Thanks again Jeremy for getting me this beer from the brewery! Pours a clear copper color with a thin cream colored head. Kind of sweet, malty aroma. Bitter hops, gentle. Smooth, easy drinking. A decent brew!

Nice, sweet aroma escapes the bottle.
Looks like a typical Bitter.
Flavor is alive with a good blend of hops.
A decent bitter I could drink more than once.

Not a huge ESB fan, but this one did me well. It had a nice amber golden pour with a little head. The aroma was very mild and the taste was in the same boat. My favorite ESB so far, due to its mildness.
