Poured a brownish red as opposed to reddish brown and had a decent head that died quick with minimal lace and a airy, clean aroma of some bread malt and touches of sweet caramel and minimal hops. A bitter hop taste first hit me, but then it smoothes out and is balanced thanks to some sweet caramel and bread malt (possible bitter chocolate or toffee in there). Good balance and finish, not the most flavorful ESB I've had but a pretty good one.

A: Pours a darker brown with a full tan colored head. Good lacing present on glass.

S: Malty and sweet.

T: Bread bitterness from the hops up front and through the middle. Malts and maple sweetness to finish.

M: Body yet light enough to have few. Great feeling on the tongue - really creamy.

O: Well done ESB.

Had this wonderfully delicious treat a couple years ago at the brewery and it turned out to be the best I tasted there. Wish we could get it in Rochester New York. Fantastic from start to finish, and also paired well with my meal, wish unfortunately I can't remember what it was at this time
