Poured from a 15.9 oz can into a pint glass.
A: deep mahogany color with a fluffy off-white head that slowly settles to a thin lace on the surface. Darker than most beers of this style. Carbonation is lively.
S: grainy malt up front with subtle caramel and toast notes. Hops lend a floral character in the background.
T: Much like the smell, but with a slightly harsh bitterness at first. As the beer warms, the malt profile really begins to shine through, bringing hints of caramel, fresh baked bread, and some fruity esters. Hops provide a slightly bitter, floral finish.
Nores: This is the epitome of a traditional English ESB. Moderate to medium in body, and quite easy to drink. Maybe the best English beer to come out of a can that I have tried. Very well put-together.
Serving type: can

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.
