Nice tasting beer but closer to an English Pale Ale (ala Bass Ale) than a true ESB.

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

Heads up., I cant justly rate this because I feel it does not conform to style.
Bottle > Tulip glass

A - clear brown with a finger of off white head, no lacing.
S - Very nutty, some woodiness to it, cedar, big roasted maltiness, light grassy and earthy hop tone.
T - Extra, special....brown ale? seriously this is closer to an amber, but especially a brown way more so than and ESB, no hops really come through in the flavor, its roasty malts.
M. Mildly creamy, smooth.
O - In no way shape or form is this an ESB, its way too roasty and there's barely any hop profile...But it is a good brown ale!
