3.38/5 rDev -4.8%
Poured on-tap from cask into pint glass at the brewery.
A: Pours a clear coppery red hue with 1/2 inch light tan head.
S: Spicy malt and a hint of nuttiness.
T: Buttery caramel malt, spicy grains, and mild nuttiness.
M: Super smooth from the cask. Light body. Sweet with a bit of spice. Dry bitter finish.
D: A nice, but not outstanding session beer. Having this on cask really helps it out.

Kahki head with lots lace. Color is amber.
Aroma: bready and caramel with some floral hops. Not too much here.
Taste: mimics the nose but has a bigger malt profile but a bit of citrus and hops.
Mouthfeel: bitter. Medium bodied with a good amount of carbonation. Ends a little sticky.
Overall, a very basic esb. Easy to drink but no big standout flavors. Average.

Love me a good ESB, so looking forward to this glass fo' sho'.
Pour is hybrid between golden & amber, leaning in the direction of the former. Nose is languid & lazy, bare hops, fresh biscuits.
Witchtree ESB gives a solid accounting of the style. Grassy, grainy, bready, spare suggestion of bittering hops. All the classic ESBisms are present, as if the beer were making reparations for foul ESBs the world over. It was nice & easy to sip upon.
Right on the outside corner of the style; good beer without being noteworthy among its well-crafted peers.

The beer arrived with a brown color and a very nice creamy head which left an unbelievable amount of lacing on the glass. The aroma is nutty and British for sure.
On the palate the flavors are malty and nutty and provide the backbone for this thing. It ends with a whisper of bitterness which provides the balance emblematic of the style. Overall this is a good beer.

Appearance is good, nice medium brown color and some head and lacing. Smell and taste are good as well. bitter and dry malt up front with just a touch of hops and caramel on the backend. Mouthfeel is prety good, but almost feels chalky. Drinkability is pretty good as well.

A - Poured a dark burgandy color with a fairly large, tan head. It left thick rings of lace on the glass.
S - It smelled of malt and hops. Also, some nice floral notes.
T - It was fairly malty with a subtle bitterness. There was also a citrus-like kick.
M - It was crisp and smooth. A medium-bodied beer.
D - One of their regular beers. It is one I'd like to have again. It certainly is growler-worthy.

A- Clear gold color with no activity.
S- Nose is ok but really lacking malt for the style.
T- This is ok but too hoppy for an ESB. This beer should be much more balanced but its just lacks what ESBs truly are balance.
M- Good thickness just a nice mouthfeel.
D- Easy to drink a good beer really just not a good ESB.
Note: I tend to be hard on ESBs as they are my favorite style so if your looking for a nice beer have one of these but it your looking for a good ESB look elsewhere.
