A Keep The Glass beer at the Winking Lizard in scenic (sarcasm) Bedford Heights, Ohio.
A seared copper in color, with a scant off-white layer of lace that really didn't do much (possibly a dirty glass?). Aromas are difficult to detect. There's some sweetness here, along with a dash of bread dough and fruity esters. Flavor is rather tame. Nothing here to sit me upright in my chair. Some bitterness, but not nearly as much as other ESB's I've had. Finish has a dash of roasted malt and toffee, without any pronounced drying effect. Fuller in the mouthfeel than expected or (IMHO) desired. Modestly drinkable, though I'd reach for Fuller's ESB if offered alongside.
Cool glass, though, to add to my collection.
Serving type: on-tap

Pours a deep, ruddy brown with a nice creamy off-white head. The head has great retention and leaves nice lacing. The aroma is deep and rich malt, with hints of dark fruit and a faint earthy whiff. The taste follows in line, with a delicious malt forward flavor and a subtle hint of hops to round it out. The beer's body weight is perfect, not too heavy or thin and it has a smooth finish. A great pint of bitter. If you're in England, always good on cask.
