Poured from a growler into a pint glass.
Pours a deep amber reddish color. Very small and quickly disappearing tan head. The aroma is very subtle, malty sweet and caramel smelling with a hint of English hops. Taste follows suit, I really did not get much of a bitter flavor at all out of it which was slightly disappointing. Taste is sweet, with caramel and biscuit flavors, very clean with a slight bitter bite at the end. Full bodied with a rather thick mouthfeel. Low carbonation, possibly as a result of the growler as I remember it being higher when I sampled it from the store. Overall, this is a good dark English ale, however I would say it lacks the bitterness to be considered an ESB. Pleased nonetheless with this beer and will probably have again.
Serving type: growler
