look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5
Poured into a standard pint glass.
Appearance: Pours a slightly golden amber color with minimal head. The beer leaves minimal lacing on the edges, and when held up to a light, it has a slight hazy quality to it.
Smell: Malts seem to be the predominant scent here. There is a sweetness to it, and the smell of dark grains also are present. Nothing exciting here, but it is pleasant.
Taste: It starts with a strong taste of sweet malts, which gives way to a strong grain quality. There aren't a lot of bitter tastes here, despite the ESB name. The aftertaste has a slight bitterness, but it is hardly noticable. The overall taste is good, although it's nothing special.
Mouthfeel: The brew is thin, and has light carbonation. Once again, average, with no distinguishing characteristics.
Drinkability: Since these are malty and thin, they make for easy drinking. These would make a good session beer.
A solid "B" quality beer. I enjoy these, although it's nothing I would go out of my way to procure.
Serving type: bottle
