Extra Special Ale (ESA)

Utterly ridiculous carbonation/head that took an eternity to subside and actually spoiled the drinking experience. Lacing was good (eventually) after I had got to a point where the head had susided to a degree to make the lacing visible.

Golden orange pour with a decent hop profile, but this wasn’t really very tasty hoppiness, more of a biting bitterness. Seemed very bitter for bitter’s sake which was not very enjoyable.

Carbonation and head made a mess of the mouthfeel and the finish was really very metallic and bitter.

Poor drinkability related to the bitterness and the silly carbonation.
