Title: Flying Fish ESB Amber Ale
Post by: tonyp on March 26, 2011, 01:47:29 AM
As a fellow NJ Resident I felt a strong urge to support a local brewery and decided FF was a good choice.

Appearance- Amber/Orange, very hazy and 'thick' looking, head was thin, white and dissipated quickly leaving a ring around the edges of the glass.

Smell- Green apples, grassy, a little fruity and another aroma that i just can't place

Taste- toffee and caramel with a bit of sourness

Mouthfeel- Light, thin and crisp with a bit of a bite to it, dry finish

Drinkability- Overall I guess i would rate this a 5 out of 10, I was expecting an english ESB but it was more like an american ale. Not sure if i will pick this up again, but i will definitely try more Flying Fish in the future.
