COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A classic example of an ESB, where sweetness of the barley malt balances the slight bitterness provided by the Target and Golding hops. We add East Kent Goldings during secondary fermentation; this process of "dry-hopping" provides a distinct, flowery aroma to the beer. At our Greenfield Pub and Restaurant we serve this copper colored ale cask conditioned. Original Gravity: 1057

Has a nice amber color and a light hop smell. Taste is of hops and finishes slightly bitter. Overall not a bad ESB, but I expect this style to be a bit more bitter.

Cask conditioned. More sour than bitter. Very interesting though. Sour apple, fruity, almost some vinegar hints in there. Very nice bitter finish.

NERAX ’02 cask: Heavy malt flavor that was covered by a great hoppiness. No head, dark orange color, syrupy-watery texture, nice and bitter. My favorite at Wed-Thurs NERAX ’02.

Wow very good. malt and toffee aroma, and full flavor of the same. Rich, creamy, with a subtle hops presence. Also a slight sour taste that is very nice. Excellent beer.
