A perfectly suitable ESB, if on the hoppier side and perhaps just a tad thin in the mouth. You do get the classic biscuity notes, and maybe not so much of the copper tinge you'll often find in the English ones. A bit sharper in the hops department, but not overly so. The only real problem here is the strength- it doesn't really add anything to the experience here but some alcohol- both in flavor and in strength. Really, why bother?

Canned 10/26/2011

Grabbed a single for a very reasonable price. Ran upstairs with the can in my coat pocket. It exploded when I opened it.

Pours foggy brown with some orange. Minimal head and lacing.

Nose is a big sweet malt bomb. Loads of caramel, candied fruit, heavy syrup, stone fruits, a bit of piney hops.

Lots of sweetness in taste. Dark fruits (dates), some woody character, alcohol, floral hoppy notes, mild bitterness.

Big body, nearly syrupy with the sweetness. Low carbonation.

A tasty brew overall. Plenty of strength and sweetness with a full body to stand on.
