Deep gold color, unlike alot of ESB's I've tasted which are more on the amber side. High carbonation, 2 finger head which collapsed only slightly in nonic glass. Smell is very honeyish/sweet. I understand the hops in this one to be Fuggles (one of my faves) and Buillion, a seldom - used hop. The taste is simply off-putting at the very least. English Bitter is my style but this one misses the mark big time. Bitter is one thing but harsh is another. It seems an almost vegetal flavor quickly overcomes the initial sweetness through in the middle and in the finish. Virtually no Fuggles aroma or flavor in this one. I think the Buillion won out and this makes this ESB a looser. One of the worst ESB's out there IMHO.
