3.5/5  rDev -6.4%

So this beer was brought by someone else to my house for a party and left a few extras in the fridge. They said they just bought it from the store yet, when I looked at the bottle on date on label says 9/25/12 (yes 2 years old..WTF?).

So my review is with disclaimer that its a 2 year old ESB.

Its actually semi-drinkable and not horrible. Yes, it doesn't taste very fresh but I could at least down 1 without too much effort.

Rating as 3.5 for now, but hope to find a fresh one at some point and do a re-review.
