This is unlike any other ESB i’ve had so far, usually they have a very strong IPA like hop flavor that comes with them, this doesn’t at all. It has a slight amount of the bitter flavor associated with the use of heavy hops like a usual ESB but its not even as strong as you’d expect that to be. Theres also no strong malt flavor like you’d expect. So i’m going to stop looking at this beer from an ESB standpoint and look at it from an ale standpoint, because thats what the taste is really like. As this beer enters your mouth it doesn’t really have alot of flavor, its not necessarily lite As it sits in your mouth you get the light dry hoppy flavor of an ale. Right after you get that flavor and you swallow it all of a sudden you get this very mild bitter taste in your mouth that reminds me a lot of a pale ale. This beer is okay, its not really exciting, nor is it an ESB like the labol says. This ale is only okay.
