Oliver’s ESB

Incredibley simple ESB, and that’s its strength.

The pour was like a nitro, with plenty of those minute bubbles of carbonation that produce a tight, creamy and lasting head. Simple brown coloration – very clear. Aroma is very muted, as are the initial tastes.

This beer benefits a great deal from warming up to room temperature. The cold serving temperature seems to mute everything about the beer. As it warms, the balance of malt and hops beginings to be more evident and intensifies the experience.

Outside of that it’s a simple beer, highly drinkable, a nice example of the stlye and something you are not likely to be disappointed by.
