3.75/5 rDev -1.1%
Anderson Valley still remains one sneaky brewery....they are producing some good stuff. The ESB....while not my favorite style is quite taste. The beer poured a slightly hazy copper with 1/2 finger thick head that is leaving a lace. The scent is slightly sweet with bitter hops present. The taste is bitter at the front then smooths with a sweet malt. The mouthfeel is lighter in body with good carbonation. Overall this is a decent beer and glad I tried it.

Pours from the bottle to a darker
Golden color. Lots of white lacing but could be due to that fact I used a narrow glass. Disappeared quickly. The nose of the beer is hoppy, floral, the bottle describes it as lilacs, white pepper, and Bartlett pears with blueberry honey and roses. Not sure if I get all that but can believe the floral as it is flavorful but dry. Spicy but mild in my opinionCrisp finish slightly hops.

12oz : tulip
Pours a coppery, golden orange with a thick, foamy off white head.
Herbal, earthy hops blend with a solid, malty, backbone.
Medium body, foamy carbonation.
Fairly standard stuff overall. Tasty, but nothing really intriguing going on.

A: Golden amber with a 2-inch beige head that retains for a while. Lots of bubbles on the bottom of the glass.
S: Very floral, with spicy black pepper notes.
T: Hop bitterness with a lot of florals and some black pepper.
M: Spicy black pepper tingle on the tongue accompanies thick mouthfeel and average carbonation.
O: Good beer. I like the black pepper notes a lot- that's not something I've really tasted in beer before. I really enjoy the spicy tingle in the mouthfeel, and I'd love to try more beers with similar characteristics.
