Beer added by: wingman14 on 09-07-2013

This beer is in honor of Delaware almost being named state capital of Ohio. Also known as an English Pale ale, the ESB is a classic English beer style that is truly a great session beer for anytime of the year.

Pours dark brown with little head. Not a strong smell, but still nice, mostly malty with a hint of fruit notes and smokiness. The taste follows suit, a great malty flavor, with a subtle sweetness that I am guessing is from the roasted malt. A nice medium mouthfeel, extremely smooth, a well balanced beer, with great flavor. Overall one of my favorite ESBs, the malt characteristics of this beer are excellent. (410 characters)
