Stopped by RB this weekend for a few beers and food. Second beer of the night was the Goldings Pride ESB. Served in a standard pint glass. Nice looking body, sunshine yellow color, with a thin head but lots of carbonation. Smell was musty yet hoppy. I liked the taste of this beer, as it had a nice balance of hops and malt. Mouthfeel was decent, though I felt it left a somewhat harsh coating on my palate. Drinkability was above average, as most aspects of this beer were agreeable. Maybe not the best ESB in the world, but it's worth a pint or two if you enjoy the style.

Served on-tap in a clear pint glass at Rock Bottom Brewery (Boston, MA).

A: Clear amber with 1/2-to-1-finger bubbly beige head with average retention and no lacing.

S: I almost smell the glass more than the beer. Pale and caramel malts are pretty light, but the herbal hops are even lighter.

T: A prototype of the undermalted ale style with mild cardboard caramel malt flavor with milder herbal hops flavor. Uninspired to say the least.

M: Poor due to the undermalting leaving a watery feel with low carbonation and virtually no aftertaste.

D: It's easy to drink because it's light but flavor is just as light. Add double the malt and double the hops and maybe they would have something.
