Nothing stood out for this beer. I would classify it in the Pale range..... bordering on bitter. Just not much flavor and heavy carbonation.

UPDATED: JUN 14, 2009 I will have to be blunt with this one, it tastes like pretentious malt liquor.This "ESB" has a nice looking red-amber appearace, a somewhat fruity scent, and is flavored like flat Budweiser full of stale sugar packs.

On tap Harpoon Harrys, Fort Myers. My other choices were Coors and Bud. Dark golden color. Medium head. Not too bitter. A little too heavy for my taste. Not an all night drinking beer.

This beer is well above average, but it is the only ESB I have ever tried. That makes it hard to compare to other ESBs.

UPDATED: APR 22, 2003 A bit sweeter than I expected. Fairly light in both texture and color. Prefer the IPA.

Not too dark or too light. Pleasant and hoppy aroma. Flavor is very nice and definitely has a bitter ale style to it. Good beer with nothing out of this world nor anything negative to really complain against. An all around winner for bitter beers.

my first rating on ratebeer.com, but I would say this isnt the worst beer Ive tasted. It coats my mouth well and has a nice carmel taste.

Poured from a 12 oz bottle, drank from a pint glass. Light ESB with carmel hints and a bitter punch from the hops. A good light beer for the heat. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Nice deep amber color with a good creamy head. Decent balnce with grass and malt flavors, slightly bitter finish.
