Review from BeerAdvocate Magazine Issue #39 (Apr 2010):

Rich and bright copper-colored brew with a creamy and sticky lacing. Fresh biscuity malts in the nose. Earthy, with an underlying damp, herbal character. Medium bodied with a crisp carbonation that breaks through and provides some creaminess. Bone dry from the start with some grainy malts, hint of caramel, wood and biscuity finish. Hops aren't overly bitter (nor should they be), but there's a grassy snap that rides in on the carbonation to perk things up. Some dark fruitiness pulls through, especially as the beer warms. Nicely bal- anced. Biscuity and a bit tannic in the finish, which is very dry and moreish.

These days, and especially in the US, ESBs seem hard to come by. This is a good introduction to the style for those looking to broaden their beer experience--a flavorful session beer.

Serving type: bottle

look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 3.5

Thin lacing on a clear garnet coloured brew. Big aromas of toasted malt, fruitiness and a brush of herbal hop. The smoothness is spot on within the medium body. Toasted malt flavours seem to overwhelm the palate and shadow over the hops. Barely enough bitterness and hop flavour to balance, finishes a tad sweet and very little lingering hop.

I personally like my ESBs to have a big and bold fresh hop character ... sadly this one did not.

Serving type: on-tap
