This is my second Avery offering. I was amazed by its clarity. Most of the ESBs I've had have been cask or draught, so the light amber clarity was a bit of a surprise. The aroma is very pleasant, and reminiscent of their IPA. (bright citrus grove) The taste is also very reminiscent of the IPA with its grapefruit flourish. The wonderful tartness overpowers the malt I expect in an ESB, so I'm somewhat surprised. By the name, it should be bitter, but this is more of a crispness than bitterness. This is a good beer, but not what I'd classify as an ESB.
