Run of the mill ESB in my opinion their english bitter is better, overall it meets all the requirements of the style as I know it but nothing really makes me say let me get a growler of that!, Good if you happen to stumble into it, but not worth seeking out.

4.25/5  rDev +12.7%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Appearance: Arrives with an amber color capped by a decent head; very good retention and plenty of lacing

Smell: Tea, stone fruit and earthy hop tones

Taste: Tea and stone fruit, up front, with an earthy tobacco flavor developing in the middle; dry, bitter and leathery finish

Mouthfeel: Medium body with moderate carbonation

Overall: A style that is rarely seen these days; if more brewers brewed it like this it would be brewed more frequently
