3.83/5  rDev n/a
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

Clear amber with a cream colored head. No lacings. Smell is bready. Taste is big malts with a touch of bitter English hops. I have seen the abv. listed as 5.5, 6.0, and 6.2. I think this version is 6.2%. Mouthfeel is fine for the style could use more carbonation. Overall too much malt and alcohol. The ratio of hops to malt is fine just needs to be dialed down to a 5 to 5.5% abv. to be just right for an ESB. I guess over all I would rather have it in it's present version than not at all. ESB's are hard to find in the Craft beer community.

Pint glass poured from a growler poured today at the brewhouse. $12 Classic good looks to this dark amber beer with a nice thick eggshell white head. pretty malt driven aroma..bready,caramel little nutty Taste is more substantial with all of the above plus a nice English hop profile at the back of the mouth..some tobacco//nice Good mouthfeel very understated and to style as far as carbonation. Nice ESB will be back for more
