This just a dry-hopped version of the breweries house ESB (which is more of a Pale Ale than a true ESB. I call it IPA-Light.) which is generally my go-to brew at the pub. Served out of the cask, the hop aromas were softer and more muted than is normal for the beer. The bartender didn't know what hops were used for the dry-hopping, but it had a more floral scent than is typical for the beer.

The taste was pretty good, smooth, even hops balanced by a nice malt base. The body was about usual, a bit smoother due to the hand pump. Drinkability was excellent, I could drink these all day long. Overall, a nice version of a house standard. If it's on tap when you visit, it's a must try.
