The bite that ESB’s have are not for everyone but it’s a personal favorite when I can find one that’s well balanced.
Although not out of the world, this interstellar ESB is well balanced. Slightly sweet on the nose, you get a nice caramel and fruity hop up front that’s quickly followed with a syrup like sweetness. This rounds out the bitterness almost a tad too much in my opinion. The finish is nice and smooth though so this will still make for a nice summer brew.
