BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Davidson Brothers Restaurant & Brewery
New York, United States | website

Style: Extra Special / Strong Bitter (ESB)

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 4.90%

Availability: Rotating

Notes / Commercial Description:
It is colored gold, with a moderate maltiness and a medium body. The hop flavor is distinctly British, with a medium hop aroma and medium bitterness, and it interplays nicely with the body and the light, delicate carbonation. With its middle-of-the-road finish and its moderate strength, this is the perfect session beer.

A - Pours a rich amber-red color with a finger of off-white head atop. The head fades down to a thin ring around the glass leaving behind some lacing in the process.

S - Aroma is a mix of sweet caramel malts and some fruity aromas (cherry and apple). There is also some hops and some spices in the background.

T - Starts off with a mix of some sweet caramel malt and some light sweet fruit flavors. Though the middle some citrus hops come through alongside some bitterness. The finish is a mix of caramel flavor and bit of bready malts that lingers nicely.

M - Medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Very smooth and crisp with a nice mix of sweet and bitterness that lingers.

D - Very drinkable. The hop/malt balance is really nice and the touch of added fruity flavors mixes in well. Really smooth and feels refreshing.
