Hazy amber w/ cream colored head & nice lacing. Nose & taste share caramel, citrus and earthiness. Nicely balanced ESB.

Extra special bitter? More like extra smooth bitter! Surprisingly refreshing and nice hints of caramel. Very very easy to drink. The aroma, the taste, the's all good!

Awesome ESB. 25th anniversary ESB. Clear dark amber color. Half finger of off white head. Subtle floral and sweet aromas. Taste is quite sweet, maybe a hint of bitterness which leads to the crisp mildly wet finish. Really quite refreshing. Some floral hop notes, slight bitterness and a sweet creamy Caramel/toffee finish. Easy to drink and very enjoyable. profile - June 23, 2013
Smells like a floral ipa, tastes like a tripel. Very smooth. Delicious.
