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.

Merin (18) - Arizona, USA - MAR 4, 2010
Aroma was of caramel, resin pine, slight hops. Appearance was a deep copper color. Was expecting the head to be gigantic, going by the alesmith IPA. But was suprised by it being very tiny. The taste was interesting. But kind of dissapointing, in a way. I was expecting something Extra Special Bitter. But was not really bitter at all. Had a slight alcohol presence. Not very fond of that, But an exellent beer, just was expecting something else. Overall great. Definitly will be trying alesmiths other brews.

Nice beer with loads of foam! Beautiful colour and body, but somewhat bland aroma. Taste is somewhat bland too, with some touches of herb (koriander?). It is easy on the palate and good beer to drink on the terrace, but not a showjumper.

Red orange robe. Nose of malt caramel yeast and a bit of potted orange Light and watery body, no bubbles. Palate close to nose, but no finish at all, quite deceived by that, was expecting a bit more on the bitterness side.

Very smooth and balanced ESB with an apparent malty sweetness topped with subtle hopping and a long finish.

kaserov (677) - Oviedo, SPAIN - APR 10, 2017
Color ámbar, translúcido, con capa de espuma de un blanco amarillento de tres dedos de grosor (buena retención). Carbonatación media tirando a alta (más sutil en boca). Textura acuosa. Aroma a malta caramelizada, malta tostada, frutos secos, con toque floral. Sabor dulce, donde la malta tostada, el caramelo, los frutos secos y el lúpulo se dan la mano como si nada hubiera pasado. Marcado carácter floral de nuevo, al igual que en aroma, así como cierto recuerdo o reminiscencia a pan tanto en nariz como en boca. El final podría calificarlo como de mínimo amargor pero ni eso diré, más bien dulce (sin ser empalagoso, nadie vaya a pensar mal). En boca, entre trago y trago, quedan caramelo y frutos secos. Una maravilla.

Svesse (8576) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - APR 4, 2017
(Draught at Beer Temple, Amsterdam, 25 Feb 2017) Amber colour with frothy, off-white head. Malty, fruity nose with notes of caramel, treacle-toffee and orange peel. Malty, slightly fruity taste with caramel, toffee, orange peel, dried apricots and a balanced bitterness. Medium body, with a touch of sweetness. Tasty and well balanced. Nice one.
