Tap into pilsner glass showing caramel brown with clean white lacing. The nose shows light tea and biscuits. The palate is light bodied and moderately carbonated. Flavors of light bread malts on the mid palate but obscured but a strange petrol note.

Middle of the road bitter. Nothing to crazy. Doesn’t leave bubbles or foam on the glass as I would expect.

gsmitty80 (2130) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 12, 2013
Pretty weak ESB. Didnt know if it was trying to go for an English bitter or an American ESB. Too down the middle and non-memorable.
