had at the brewpub...

in no way a formal ESB outside of maybe formulation... or case in point. the english yeast strain. carbonation is bit lazier but perfectly placed. a smaller head of one to two fingers that has a beautiful retention and doesn't really subside. in my opinion an excellent american extra pale with a new zealand hop to has a hint of passionfruit and a mineral and protein rich mix of grapefruit dryness. pour is yellow golden and rather cloudy. i'm not reviewing much these days but when i see something that is really exceptional and reviews that don't accompany it...

excellent beer. don't waste it on yourself if you are expecting something very formally an ESB.

Serving type: on-tap
