I love ESB's, but I have trouble describing them. I'm hoping by reviewing a few and reading reviews I'll gain more skill in evaluating this style.
Color/Appearance: medium amber, white head that quickly dissipates.
Aroma: Lt caramel with citrus (bitter lemon) notes.
Taste: Medium body, grainy medium caramel fading to caramel and bitter lemon. Finishes fairly clean.
A very enjoyable beer - I've had this one a few times and I think it's one of my favorite examples of the style.
Serving type: on-tap

3.65/5 rDev -1.9%

Poured into a pint glass.
A: Clear with a small amount of carbonation, the body is a darker, though somewhat flat, amber color. The head is frothy and off-white with decent retention and leaves some delicate and dissipating lacing.
S: The smell is noticeable right form the pour. Strong and well balanced over all. Strong hops, strong malts. There's a vanilla sweetness that really comes through that's almost too powerful. A little funk rounds it all out nicely.
T: A strong beer that trends towards the hops, though leaving a balmy maltiness to round it all out. There's a small amount of lemon citrus that undercuts it all. Pretty well balanced.
M: It's a strong beer that has a pretty bold mouthfeel as well. Creamy, smooth, carbonated; it may all be a bit too much, but I'll give credit for going big.
Serving type: bottle
