Notes/Commercial Description:
A classic, well balanced ESB brewed with traditional East Kent Golding and Fuggles hops. There is a big, fierce earthy hop bite complemeted by a well rounded, flavorful and malty body. A very bright beer with a rich, deep amber appearance. A Pub favorite for over 18 years!

Dark amber body with a good head on it. Nose had quite a bit of toasted malts, yet sweet as well. Hops add a nice balance to the nose. Taste was full of flavors and packed quite a punch. Big malts start out with some caramel mixing in. Citrus hops start kicking in the middle and lasts into the aftertaste. Mouthfeel was medium and the texture was quite creamy. Not a bad ESB.

Serving type: on-tap

Poured on-tap and served in a shaker pint, the beer is a hazed caramel-copper coloring with a filmy, bright-white head. Nose of cream and subtle bitterness. Flavors are creamy and bitter, very blended and balanced, with a clean finish. The aftertaste is minimal, with a steady sweetness. Full bodied and very tasty. Easy to drink with the lower ABV.

Serving type: on-tap

Poured a dark brass hue with a one finger foamy white head. There was decent retention and lacing.

The smell featured round bready malts and a grassy hop spice.

The taste consisted of toasted bready malts, a touch of honey and an herbal and grassy hop.

The mouthfeel was typical of the style with a gentle carbonation.

Overall a tasty sessionable bitter.
