I like the ESB from Boulevard....it was light and crisp...came off the palate clean. The beer poured an unfiltered orange with white head. The scent had fresh hops that leaned toward bitter. The taste was very well balanced and had a slight citrus zeal. The mouthfeel was lighter in body with carbonation. Overall this is a solid beer!

Poured from a 12 oz. bottle to a pint glass. Aroma- Malt, grain and bread. not bad Appearance- This is an amber colored beer with a large off-white head. Taste- The flavor is grain and hops with a little malt tossed in. Palate- A medium bodied beer with moderate carbonation. Has an oily texture. Overall- A real good ESB, if that is a style that you like you should give this a try.
