Good stuff! Nice hops, not overpowering the malt. PhillyBeer2112 (2850) - Oviedo, Florida, USA - JUN 13, 2000
A nicely brewed, mellow ESB.
Sweetish without cloying, and a hint
of hops. Brownish red color. CrimsonGhost1971 (188) - USA - NOV 12, 2002
Not as bitter as I thought it would be but still an excellent brew. Hoppy taste and a good crisp aftertaste. Another good brew from Weyerbacher. ;) VENOM (941) - Connecticut, USA - APR 24, 2002
Unfiltered hazy copper with suspended flecks. Foamy off white head. Moderate-light carbonation. Roasted and chocolate malt aroma. Crisp medium body, with a good dose of malt flavor. Cocoa and light roasted caramel aspects. Nicely balanced with earthy hops and a very slight fruit edge. Gets maltier and deeper as it sits and warms. Finishes mellower and sharply maltier. Tastes different than previous versions but still very good. slimjim (106) - New Jersey, USA - NOV 7, 2002
Very good ESB, a lot smoother than a lot of ESB’s. It could use some more hops. Not as bitter as some ESB’s.

Slight head which leaves a small filmy residue which lingers for a while. Nice amber color with medium carbonation. Great balance between malt and hops in the aroma, while the flavor is slightly skewed towards the malt. Very smooth and easy to drink. No off flavors.

This beer was absolutely lovely, though it is hard for me to accept this as a genuine ESB. The hops bitterness was borderline imperceptible. This beer has a pleasant honey-smoothness that makes it incredibly drinkable. obxdude10 (2324) - Pottstown, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 24, 2002
Very malty taste, very rich, crisp, above average body, floral aroma & aftertaste, very well balanced, kept a pretty good head for it being out of the bottle, very good ESB
