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.

hopdog (8823) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 27, 2005
12oz bottle. Poured a medium and slightly hazy amber color with an averaged sized off white head. Aromas of caramel, flowers and a little nutty. Tastes of flowers, caramel (lighter than the aroma), nuts and light toffee. The light bitter finish balances out the sweet start.

DocLock (7743) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 27, 2004
I like this ESB, but I don't seek it out. It seems to lack balance, and tastes a little sour to me. It has a nice aroma, and is definitely bitter, but is not near the top of my ESB list.

CaptainCougar (7129) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - OCT 31, 2005
Pours a clear bright copper with a thin-lacing, puffy off-white head. Grainy, sweet crystal malty aroma has a touch of English hoppiness and some mustiness. Body starts with a semi-sweet, dry, grainy maltiness, a thick palate and a bittersweet hoppy finish. A decent, fairly authentic ESB. Thanks to IMtheOptimator for the bottle!

Copper pour with an off white head. Grassy and earthy with some tea and spicy elements on the finish.

5000 (6211) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - MAR 10, 2006
Bottle: Dark honey, moderate off-white foamy head, settles quickly leaving slight lacing.   Fairly sweet malty nose, slight mash, a bit of wheat toast and pale fruit skin.   Fruity/malty start on this one, also kinda grainy.   Lacks any real sort of bitterness.   Comes across as more of an Amber than an ESB as the bitterness is fairly low, and the maltiness is set higher than your average ESB.   Malty ESB, weak Amber, take your pick.   Body and mouthfeel are average.   Quick finish, fairly clean, in fact, very quick finish.   Only lingering sweet & sour malt notes, slight bruised apple/pear.   No real bitterness to left to linger as the bitterness is too subtle   Average.   Would make a great pizza beer tho.   Thanks to northerntimber and kramer17801 for each sending me a bottle!

BBB63 (5966) - 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.

BückDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - FEB 19, 2006
Very light haze tag along to the auburn color. Decent retentive head and lots of lacing. Nose of metallic musky hops and a bit of acidulated malt and some various stale melanoidins. The flavor is tart with some spoiled hop and very unbalanced malt body. This just really doesn’t do it for me. Harsh insect taste on the finish. Maybe this is one of those cases where the brewer excels at only a certain range of styles.

egajdzis (5277) - Spring Mount, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 4, 2003
Poured an orange amber color with a small quickly diminishing off white head. Malty, vanilla, hay and almost a strawberryish aroma. There is also hay in the taste, wierd. Also some malt and a slightly bitter hop taste as well as some orange peel. I don't know why hay was all over this one?

Dickinsonbeer (5077) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - SEP 18, 2002
Slight head which leaves a small filmy residue which lingers for a while. Nice amber color with medium carbonation. Great balance between malt and hops in the aroma, while the flavor is slightly skewed towards the malt. Very smooth and easy to drink. No off flavors.
