i must be drinking the wrong kind of ESBs because this one tasted off balanced and funky to me. aroma was ok, bready and mildly hoppy. but the flavor was a too hop forward, the grains and cereal notes tasted musty and overtly earthy, palate was sour, not in a good way either. bad keg maybe? probably not something i would try again.

redlight (2318) - Orlando, Florida, USA - MAY 21, 2011
draft @ redlight redlight. Spicy hops on the nose with bready malts as well. Pours a light amber/dark orange color with a white head. Nicely balanced, bread-like malts with just a hint of caramel with spicy earthy hops. Finishes pretty dry with just slight hint of sweetness. Nice session.

Dfonorow (2153) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 24, 2014
On tap @ Cigar City Brewpub. Pour is hazy amber with a small off-white head. Aroma and flavor are both on the sweeter side - straw, caramel, grain, faint hops, light fruit. Finish is slightly bitter.

HonusWagner (2131) - Florida, USA - MAY 29, 2011
The kind of beer I would drink if beer didnt have calories; good for everyday consumption, mildly earthy hop presence on top of a convincing sweet malt body that isnt anywhere near cloying. Toasted nuts and maybe whole grain bread with some spices mixed in. Good effort.

Brnstensfrgad l med ltt vitt skum. Doft med h och viss citrus. Bra balans i smaken mellan maltstma och beska. Skiljer sig en del frn de engelska ESB jag druckit.

Rustyham (1836) - St. Petersburg, Florida, USA - MAY 26, 2012
Color is a deep Amber, lacey head. Aroma is sweet malt and caramel. Flavor has an unexpected sharpness to it which I didnt like at first but now love. Like a blue cheese sharpness. It is slight metallic, and a bit like sourdough bread or buttermilk.
