COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Anvil ESB is our interpretation of a traditional British-style pub ale. Deep amber in color, a toasty character from British malts and a touch of kettle caramelization blend seamlessly with a mild English hop profile. Its delicate balance of flavors will keep you coming back pint after pint, making it a complex creation we’re proud to call our flagship beer.

oldrtybastrd (5002) - Fort Walton Beach, Florida, USA - MAY 19, 2016
Pours a nice hazy golden orange color. Aromas of nice citrus/grapefruit hops. Flavor starts malty and the hops kick in, nice crisp bitter finish.

anstei (2169) - Zurich, SWITZERLAND - APR 23, 2016
Bottle from Erzbierschof Zurich. A typical medium-ABV Alesmith: Nutty, pines, some caramel, rather malt-dominated, and incredibly drinkable! Doesn’t go in any particular style direction as other beers, hardly recognizable as an ESB. Not overly complex, but otherwise this beer does many things right: Texture, carbonation, balance, palate...

NikkTwist (3191) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 11, 2016
UPDATED: APR 11, 2016 Draft at Bru Craft. Poured a hazy dark ruby with off-white foam that left nice splashes of lace. Medium-dark caramel bready flavors. Dark citrus elements as well. Pomegranate. Honey wheat bread. Plums and prunes. Clove studded oranges. Purple passionfruit. Black currants. Black cherries. Black pepper. Much more shinny than flat. A dark juicy ESB.

Pedrens (220) - SPAIN - MAR 31, 2016
UPDATED: APR 3, 2016 En palancas...la bomber. Aroma para mi gusto demasiado caramelo, casi chocolate para el estilo con un fondo de buen lúpulo fresco, hierba y frutal. De dulce un pelin subida para mi gusto. Punto mild.Aún así una birra cojonuda. Bien hecha.

eljebi (93) - oviedo, SPAIN - MAR 22, 2016
Enorme ejemplar en su especie. Una ESB ambarina, de cuerpo sedoso y carácter tostado. Una rica combinación de maltas y lúpulo británicos que nos llevan desde notas dulces y tostadas a pan, frutas maduras, dátiles, pasas hasta un final floral ligeramente amargo que hace genial el trato.
