Good and malty. Pours a light amber color with a fairly weak aroma. Not my favorite beer but definitely drinkable.

In a sampler pack from my son. It poured a clear amber color with a small light tan head. The aroma was slightly fruity and floral with a nice mix of malt and hops. The taste was similar with some pine hops as well and a little bread, fruitiness and resin as the beer warms. It had a light to medium body with average carbonation and a medium to long, bitter finish. Very good.

Bottle: Clear amber color with a small head. Hoppy and fruit aroma of perhaps apricots with a little hairspray. Good hoppy flavor with lots of carbonation. Not bad.

IndianaRed (4024) - Boise, Idaho, USA - NOV 29, 2013
Bottle pours a hazy amber with a short lived off white head. Light toasted malts and plenty of bitterness. IBUs but not much hop flavor. Kind of what I dont like about ESBs in general.

Westchesterco (1917) - mclean, Virginia, USA - NOV 17, 2013
Poured from a bottle it is a clear amber Colorado with a slight head. The stoma is citrus and the taste is grapefruit that lingers on the palate and leaves the taste on your tongue

From a 12 oz bottle shared in Avon NC. Pours a clear amber with an off white head. Fruity hop nose. Flavors of grassy hops, caramel and a touch of honey. Medium bodied, high carbonation, bitter finish.

Bottle--really lovely version of an ESB, found in the seasonal section at Total. Aroma of biscuit and some hops. The color was dark amber with a small head. Looks great in an English Pint Glass. The hops start off the taste without becoming overwhelming and then the soft caramel and toffee taste kicks in. Finish with a bit of hops and lingering sweetness. A charming version of an Americanized ESB. Total wine.

Excellent take on an ESB. Extremely well balanced. Very pleasant booziness.

12 oz. bottle in a trade with Darren. Best by 12/04/2013. Dark amber color with soapy bubbles that laced well. Nose is caramel, toffee and fruity hops. Assertive hop profile for the style! Pine and herbal hops linger on the tongue for a long duration. Just enough caramel malts to provide balance. Roasted grain in a medium body. Exceeded my expectations. But not want you may be looking for in an ESB, very hoppy compared to true English recipes. Nice drink.

Pours a dark amber color. Moderate hop aroma....light citrus, resiny. Flavor is big on the hops for style but enjoyable. Citrus, and some earthy hops. Very enjoyable.
