Another english beer! This weekend, trying an ESB. I’ve had mixed luck with the style historically, from lackluster to really tasty, most notably a Challenger heavy ESB on the really tasty end. After some promising hop flavors from the brown I brewed two weeks ago, I figured I’d try out Target in an ESB.
