Extra Special / Strong Bitter (ESB) |  6.50% ABV

Availability: Rotating

Notes/Commercial Description:
This traditional English-style ESB balances classic East Kent Goldings hops with sweet, crystal malt, and finishes with American Mosaic hops. Named after a backwoods fence in Essex New York which could only be jumped by some sort of 'leaping cow' - we were hungover, don't ask!

look: 3.5 | smell: 2.75 | taste: 2.75 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

On tap at Acme Bar and Pizza in Rochester, NY.

Pours a clear copper color, with a half inch head, and a little bit of lacing.

Doesn't smell like a whole lot, seems like it might be a little bit of a weak ESB. Some caramel, and grassy hop aromas.

The taste is similar. Just a little bit boring. Slightly grassy, but very muted hop flavors. A bit of watery malt flavor as well.

Light bodied, crisp, but watery mouthfeel, medium amount of carbonation.

Very forgettable, not recognizable as a ESB, no oomph whatsoever.

Serving type: on-tap
