Couldn’t believe I hadn’t rated this. I’ve had several times. Anyways I remember it being a solid esb beer, but a little malt heavy. There you go.

Pours a nice hazy golden orange color. Aromas of nice citrus/grapefruit hops. Flavor starts malty and the hops kick in, nice crisp bitter finish.

Poured an orangish brown color with aromas of herbs, light malt, some caramel, bitterness, and feint hops. flavors were the same as the aromas, not much bitterness, decent.

Appearance is deep copper to brown in color with slight haze. Malty, nutty, and caramel aroma. Taste is sweet malt with a nice faint backbone of hops to keep it balanced. This is a great ESB.

Reviewed from notes. This was poured into a pint glass at their brewpub location in the Atlanta airport. This was consumed last September (2013). The appearance was a nice hazy orange to brown color with a decent looking half fingered white foamy head that dissipated within less than twenty seconds. There was some light lacing arranging itself in no apparent reason as it just sort of danced all around the glass (okay, no worries, I guess). The smell had the authentic yet slightly typical British malts amplifying some nice light caramel tones. The taste was mainly sweet and though it seemed like it wanted to steer away from that "British soapiness" usually found in ESB’s that most Americans don’t like, I still found it. But this doesn’t bother me as I understand this is part of the style. No worries. On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium in body and had a fairly decent sessionability about it. The carbonation seemed right on for the style and good for me. Overall, good ESB, well worthy of having again, now where’s my fish n’ chips.

Sweetwater did this ESB right. Great malty profile with earthy hops and a dry yeast that adds a little bit of esters to the brew. Not a quaffing beer, but close.

Fine to drink. Nice aroma and fetures too. A little bit too bitter as the beers from this company.
