COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Amber color with no head. Well, itís definitely bitter... There is a fair amount of malt to try and balance it out, but doesnít quite do it. Still a very tasty ESB.

Amber Coloring. Smelled Quite Hoppy to Be. Taste is Very Hoppy and Bitter...Hard To Get Away From it. Pretty Raw Brew.

Bottle. Pours a pretty amber color with a bubbly tan head. Smells simply of malts and maybe a little caramel. Tastes malty and refreshingly crisp. Begins sweetly and the more I drink the more I notice the bitterness. Not a favorite of mine.

MAP (1133) - Lakewood, Ohio, USA - NOV 14, 2004
Nice glassy amber body with trails of bubbles feading a nice soft head. The aroma is quite malty, but nothing spectacular. The flavor is a breaddish sweetness combined with a subtle finish that has a mild roasted taste. The bitterness comes in right in the middle of the taste and doesnít do the beer all that bad. Not an outstanding beer, but another fine experience from Weyerbacher.

pours a hazy amber color with a small quickly disappearing head. Malty caramel aroma, doughy, rye bead, and something odd that I canít describe. I smelled it 20 times and canít tell other than it is wrong. The beer is light and thin with some malt a tad of bitter and something else that again shouldnít really beer there. It doesnít affect the flavor as much as the aroma and it only affects the aroma when you swirl it. Hmm.

Caramel aroma, with the slightest hint of hops. Body is quite malty with lots of sweet caramel flavor. Hop flavor could be kicked up a little bit, but all in all a decent brew.

BBB63 (5960) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - AUG 22, 2004
Bottle: Pours hazy deep amber with some floaties, large initial off-white head and good lace. The aroma has notes of caramalized malts, bread, lemon-lime, orange zest, aromatic hops, and dusty yeast esters. The taste starts surprisingly mellow and sweet, lots of fruity character and bready background. More bitters and a zesty undertone are dominate on the finish. The feel is crisp, very lively (burp!), and dry. Slightly metallic as well. A good ESB with some character, worthy of a try. Thanks DocLock.

YourDarkLord (1800) - Urbana, Illinois, USA - AUG 18, 2004
Deep amber with a weak white head. Nose was malty, doughy, caramel. And a scent that was familiar but I couldnít place. Lightly carbonated, light to medium bodied. Flavor was watered down. Caramel sweetness. Just didnít do it for me.

Decent. Aroma of caramel, some hops, nice amber color, decent head, flavor starts lightly malty, some hops in the finish. Decent, just decent.

A caramel lover's delight. Smells and tastes of rich caramel. Thick rich foamy head. overall, a decent ale, but not a beer to drink in large quantities.
