The time has come to finally taste the kind of British ESB I made Well, that's a lie, I tasted it several times prior to this. But now, it is finally worth mentioning. Not to say it is amazing, but I would happily drink it now and would be comfortable serving it to other people. I kegged it ten days after brew day. It wasn't terrible by any stretch, but it had a slightly buttery or butterscotch flavor and it had an almost salty taste. That has since gone away. I suck at describing beer, but here goes.
Overall, I think its good enough to try brewing again, though not exactly the same way though. I will probably use less Burton salts next time and maybe add an extra ounce of EKG or maybe fuggles hops. I think the malt bill was pretty good, though I may try using a darker crystal malt next time.
On a side note...I was at the Flying Saucer Draught Emporium in Nashville early this week. They had Stone Farking Wheaton w00tstout on tap, so I got to try the genuine article to compare it to the kit I made. Didn't take detailed notes, but it was very tasty.
