A very nice American version of the English ESB. The US touches of a bit more hop bite adds to the brew. You could make a real nice evening with this at your local

From old tasting notes. Bright amber orange color. Bubbly beige head. Fruity toasted malt nose is complex and spicy. Bittersweet toasted malt flavor. Complex and spicy with hints of peppercorns and allspice. Dry hop finish.

Reddish amber pour, clear with white foam. The hops and malt are both light and slightly grassy. The body is light as is the fizz. Slightly sharp notes, but easy to drink. July 2008

As far as English Style Bitter’s go, this beer isn’t bad. It is just sweet enough and has just a tad of hop bitter to it; so basically it is easily quaffable and would be welcome any time I need a refreshing beer. There is no unpleasant aftertaste. There is nothing wrong with this beer, it is a decent ESB. But of course if I wanted to drink an interesting beer this would not be my choice as it just doesn’t hold up to the stronger styles.

More sour than bitter. Pales in comparison to today’s hoppy offerings. Not for me.

Jabah (509) - Winter Park, Florida, USA - APR 10, 2015
This wasn’t one of my favorites from Stoudts, but I am not the biggest fans of extra bitters. The hops are the main theme going on, with of course, an extra bitter aftertaste. It is still a smooth, crisp beer....on the lighter side overall. Dark orange-light copper color. Better than average, but pretty much an across the board 7.

Pours a perfectly clear pale copper, the color of cider. Super-effervescent, tons of bubbles. Big toasted beige, foamy head. Smells of grass, oranges, caramel malts, toffee--not your regular ESB, but not bad. The taste, however, didn’t really follow the smell. It began with a roasted malt character, followed by a light grassiness and citrus, like orange peel. Like eating a handful of earth: the grassiness mixed with the earthiness of the malt. Bitterness hits in the back, after the swallow, but is so light as to hardly be noticeable. Somewhat sweet, actually. Where it really loses it for me is the mouthfeel: light and watery. Light carbonation is nice, but the drink is so insubstantial. I like the balance of roasted malts and hops, though.
