First brewed in 1971. Ingredients: Pale Ale malt, Crystal malt and Maize; Target, Challenger, Northdown and Goldings hops.
Brewed at 5.5% ABV in cask and 5.9% ABV in bottle, ESB is a true liquid legend, and should be savoured as such.
ESB has a wonderful rich mahogany appearance. Taking in the nose, the beer is bursting with cherry and orange, balanced by soft malty toffee and caramel notes. The flavour delivers everything you would expect from such a full-bodied ale. The unique blend of Northdown, Target, Challenger and Goldings hops imparts grassy, peppery notes on the tongue along with intense citrus fruit characters of grapefruits, oranges and lemons. The blend of Pale Ale and Crystal malts in the brew give a biscuity, toffee element to the beer. A smooth, mellow bitterness lingers on the palate to give a superbly satisfying finish.

misc (669) - Vienna, AUSTRIA - DEC 9, 2018
UPDATED: DEC 9, 2018 Aroma is light hoppy, medium to heavy malty. It smells quite fruity: raisins, red berries, caramel, nuts. Clear mahogany color with a medium sized, creamy, white head. Flavor is medium to heavy sweet, light bitter. It tastes like raisins, red berries, smoke, milk-chocolate. Mouthfeel is thin to oily, body is medium. Finish is short and medium sweet. Very complex, very well balanced. 0,5l bottle from BeerLovers Vienna.

UPDATED: NOV 30, 2018 Aroma: malty, honey, floral and herbal hop Appearance: beautiful mahogany color with excellent clarity and a very tiny white head. taste: biscuit, honey, some caramel, grassy, herbal and floral hop. lingering moderate bitterness. Palate: medium body. delicate carbonation. dry in finish. Overall: It tastes quite similar to London Pride, though it's stronger, slightly maltier, but somewhat less smooth in palate. well balanced, classic, and tasty.

Gorgosh (552) - SWEDEN - NOV 2, 2018
UPDATED: NOV 2, 2018 Genomgående fruktigt. Aromen har russin och karamellmalt i huvudsak. Smaken ligger och hoovrar mest runt den torkade frukten. Schysst, genomsnittlig brittisk ale, kort och gott.

DraftPours23 (1293) - FRANCE - OCT 24, 2018
Ambré limpide, mousse moyenne, malt toasté, biscuité, un peu de houblon au nez. En bouche, houblon amer en fond, toasté et grillé léger sur la langue. Archétype de la bitter anglaise.

UPDATED: OCT 23, 2018 Õlle on selline jook, et iga uus kord kui klaasi või pudeli suule tõstad, siis leiad midagi uut, sõltuvalt tuhandest-miljonist pisiasjast, mis hetke olukorda mõjutavad. Seega piirdun iga õlle juures selle tekstiga.

stantheman (1436) - British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 23, 2018
A single tall can from Viti Liquor in east Vancouver. An orange amber beer with generous beige head and a faint bittersweet nose. On the palate there's very little bitterness. Mild, sweet and delicious malts are what make this beer hum. Just a trace of bitterness on the finish. Smooth, mild, easy going and delicious! 3.8

TasteTamer25 (27) - BERLOZ, BELGIUM - SEP 8, 2018
Une belle robe cuivrée translucide sans aucun dépôt de levure. Une mousse qui ne tient pas mais des arômes subtils. Un parfum malté et caramélisé. Un goût bien malté avec un soupçon d'amertume. Un excellent équilibre en bouche. Une belle réussite que cette bière. Une Ale comme on les aime et c'est pour cela qu'on les aime.

Fábio (2) - - AUG 26, 2018 does not count
UPDATED: AUG 26, 2018 Pioneira e melhor ESB. Aroma inconfundível. Cerveja com maior teor alcoólico. Inglesa recomendadíssima.
