Need a beer to bring forth your innermost positive feelings? Our ExpectuS Beertronum is an amber-brown English style extra special bitter and will do just that. Maris Otter, brown, and crystal malts yield flavors like a cross between a light chocolate brownie and a nutty shortbread. Just enough English hops to balance and not “bitter” as the name may suggest.

drowland (7887) - Georgia, USA - FEB 2, 2015
On tap at Bleu Cafe, June 2014, I believe. Copper pour with a small khaki head, mild lacing. Nutty aroma, mild chocolate, husky grains, a little worty. Okay flavor, doughy, caramel, lightly nutty with a sprinkle of chocolate. Not bad.

Ferris (12902) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 9, 2014
Draft - Nutty and grains with a touch of caramel. Cloudy orange copper with a decent head. Roast malts, caramel and a hit of bitterness that follows into the finish. Tastes good, but a little to much bitterness.

Imaena (2231) - Maputo, MOZAMBIQUE - MAY 2, 2014
Draught. This is a solid ESB with lots of character. Well worth trying along with the rest of the line up.

jrob21 (3454) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - APR 24, 2014
On tap at the pub. Caramel butterscotch and a touch of baked bread. Candi sugar and light english hop flavors. All working pretty well together. Nice to style with a little more character to keep you entertained.

PorterPounder (7416) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - APR 11, 2014
Atlanta, Ga. - on tap at the brewpub, Sparkling medium copper pour, light off-white head. Aroma has a wort-like essence to it, a touch of spruce and pepper. Flavor has a nice underlying subtle bitterness to it with some citrus, a touch of pepper-like spiciness and some nuttiness. Mouthfeel has a nice bit of carbonation to it. Pretty decent ESB.

JHeath99 (1676) - Warner Robins, Georgia, USA - APR 7, 2014
Tap at Lazy Dog. Pours a slightly hazy amber with a thin layer of cream colored head. Aroma of an almost roastiness up front with some malty moments. Taste of bread with a slight citrus hint. The bitterness is sneaky at first but pleasantly lingers in the finish.

pmlato (12) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - APR 16, 2012
Though lacking the strength of bitterness of most traditional ESBs, this is an excellent beer. Perhaps it could be termed an "American ESB", (though ironically not nearly as bitter as the many many EIPAs crowding the market), it has a great toasted malt character. More carbonated than the typical ESB, pours beautifully. Great flavor mashup. Weakness lies in the body, a tad watery on finish.
