COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The key to an ESB is balance. Bitter may be in the name, but a true English ESB is not bitter at all. The color is more on the darker side of the scale and is low in carbonation. A pronounced malt taste leads to a toasty and fruity finish. A true English day drinking ale.

Growler. Aroma of roasted malt and soap. Good lookin dark amber with lacing. Tasting caramel, malt, hops, cream, butterscotch, oak. Nice carbonation, smoky aftertaste. Good stuff.

Had this fresh on tap in Columbia SC last night, I recall an authentic true-to-style ESB that poured a flawless clear brown hue with ruby accents, lots of lacing and a head that lasted the whole pint. Aroma was decent general earthy hops and toasted malt. Palate on the other hand was a bit thin, but had a nice flavor with toasted caramel malty notes up front and a moderate hop bitterness in the finish. Would definitely drink this again! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Very light smell, taste is smooth...little hops on front end and then malt with light sweetness on the finish, quite nice...more bitter with time... unfortunately...liked how the first sip tasted
