This was our February selection in our BOTM club.
It pours a deep gold with blotchy head remnants. I've seen this look before and it's neither bad nor good.
Aroma is very light and all I got was minimal hops.
Taste has a stale malty start and a slight hoppy finish. I would expect a bit more from an ESB.
Carbonation is low. This is an Okay ESB. I wouldn't turn it down but there are so many others that I would go to before the Flying Fish.
