Reddish-copper color - almost no head, very low carbonation - slight hoppy and bready aroma - flavor is like a very malty pale ale - pretty sweet, but almost no hops/bitterness - rather thin, leaving nothing much on the palate but a slight hop flavor, making you wonder why the hell you couldn't taste any hops before you swallowed - bland bu drinkable.

Clear amber. Very fruity orange-like aroma, some raw grains also. Flavors are a bit disappointing, same as aroma with less fruit, malt up front, everything tuned down.

CapFlu (5123) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 9, 2003
(Bottle) Copper with white head. Spicy, yeasty and bitter nose. Bitter and hoppy flavour but lacking complexity. Smooth yet too fast a finish.

I have not had many ESBs to compare, but this one impressed me with a good flavor, nice aroma, and lack of aftertaste.

UPDATED: JAN 21, 2006 Deep amber with medium sized white head. Malty aroma with slightly acrid floral leanings. Light hop bite, tempered by a sweetish maltiness whoch rules throughout. A light yeasty nuttiness emerges at end of swallow and hangs around in aftertaste.

Dickinsonbeer (5074) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - MAR 5, 2003
orange with light white head. Aroma is rediculously hoppy- very floraly and flowery- very different from any other beer. Still has some nice background malt for balance.

HighGravity (926) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - FEB 26, 2003
(Brewed by Frederick Brewing) The palate is very malty and mildly fruity. Hops are present, but subdued. Although, I find this beer to be well made it could use a slightly higher dose of bittering hops.

WISEGUY572 (1377) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 10, 2003
Definitely an ESB. Not bitter enough to be an IPA. Cloudy reddish brown with white head, constant stream of bubbles. Thin mouth feel and little spritz typical of Fullers ESB. Taste of malt and floral hop, but not as bitter as I had hoped for. Easy to drink, but not especially complex. Thin sour brown ale, ESB malt, a little floral hop. I prefer a stronger hopppyness, and a more pronounced bitter finish.
