earthy, yet fruity. Going to be my go to ESB. Nice balance of malts and hops. Elnaer (11) - Michigan, USA - FEB 20, 2015
I honestly have limited experience with ESB’s. They are relatively new to me. That being said, this is a tasty beer (isn’t that the real goal here). It’s not bitter like an IPA...instead it’s a little sour with a touch of fruity bitter, like an orange peel or to a lesser extent, a lime. It’s very tasty and a nice change of pace for someone who prefers Stouts and Porters...for whatever that’s worth. Cheers! Mittenator (1612) - Michigan, USA - APR 22, 2013
Bottle. Rich caramel color with a good size off-white head. Lots of caramel in the aroma along with some slightly sour malt. Caramel, vanilla and some malt and grain flavors. Really smooth body. This one was a nice surprise. milewide (2332) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - JUN 28, 2013
Cloudy amber color with excellent small bubble head. Flavor was malty, with lots of English hops focused on flavor and not just bitterness. deyholla (12583) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - OCT 25, 2014
On tap at the brewpub. Pours a clear deep amber with a gray head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has a lot of grass notes with some light grain and just a hint of pine coming through. Flavor has bitter pine up front that mellows in to a grass and light grain finish.
