Bottle. Pours dark brown with fuzzy white head. Aroma of caramel and maple. Tastes of caramel, bitter hops and malts. Lots of carbonation. Sweet finish. Very good.

Can in Fl. Make up your mind. Esb or amber. Minimal bitters. Minimal caramel. No chocolate like one person thought they noted. Sort of flat. Avg. Boring kingaugusta (270) - Georgia, USA - SEP 6, 2016
Pours clear copper with a small tan head. Nose is light caramel and some floral hops. Flavor is much bolder with a big hit of brown malts and moderate hop bitterness. Finish is a little bittersweet and spiced with licorice. A little odd and very English. Aurelius (5369) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - AUG 13, 2016
Dark, rusty brown and clear. Good label and cap on a standard brown longneck. Powdery, somewhat sweet, malty aroma. Very nice. Dark molasses notes over a sweet, tannic, leathery brew. Medium body, though it seems like it ought to be heavier. I didn’t care for the finish particularly - there was a strange, toasted sugar bitterness that didn’t fade well. I’d characterize this as a great beer with flaws - it’s right down my alley, but with a couple of noticeable missteps. ABC Liquors, Bull Run. smaynard6000 (1180) - Apopka, Florida, USA - JUL 14, 2016
Bottle. Pours a dark amber with small tan head. Malty aroma with cereal and biscuit notes. Bold caramel malt flavor with this. A bit toasty. Lingering sweet finish. Pretty good.

Very very good esb. I am solidly impressed. Great solid British mild that accentuates the malts. kathouse (1911) - LAS VEGAS, Nevada, USA - JUN 19, 2016
