had a couple of Blue Point Brews. I like the HOPTICAL ILLUSION but I was too thrilled with the lager. This ESB is pretty damn tasty.

This beer pours a clear copper with a nice head and good carbonation.

Nice bitter taste with citrus notes . The malt is way in the background

Excellent..Clean and crisp. I would definitely get this beer again. However, I don’t live in the area . This growler was a gift and it was a good one.

on cask at the Brazen head, BKLYN NY. Poured cloudy, orangy almond, off white minimal head, tiny bubbles and leaving lacing. Fresh hoppy nose. Nicely balanced ale, Malt in place, Floral, fresh piney hops come through loud and clear. Tasty and enjoyable. Freshness is the word here. Low carbonation, smooth mouthfeel. Well done!, Classy and tasty ESB. This is the best I've had from Blue point

Fresh 1/2 Gallon Growler purchased at Bierkraft in Park Slope for $12. Not bad. This is a bright red/copper colour with a nice fluffy head of white foam that stays around and leaves nice lace on my pint glass. The aromas are toasty, buttery, and very malty with a fresh floral hop bite on the nose as well. The taste is very malty up front with the hops in the middle and a lovely blend of the two in the finish. This is a very good English ESB here! The mouthfeel is smooth and very "cask-like" and the drinkability is excellent. A great version!

I was a little nervous after trying BP's toasted Lager (very dissapointing), but those fears were put to rest as soon as I caught a whiff of this beer.
Dark amber color with a nice off-white head.
Aroma was sweet floral, earthy. The flavor was great. A load of hops. Finish slightly more bitter but not overpowering.
Great brew...a must have from Bluepoint.
