This is not my review but from one that I gave a bottle to:
I cracked your home brew on Saturday evening and as a former homebrewer
and someone who has hung with some major homebrewers in the past, I have
to say yours was one of the best homebrews I have ever tasted. Thanks
for sharing. To me it did not taste like an ESB but reminded me of a
lighter bodied German Fest style or perhaps a Helles Gold. The beer was
very malt forward bready, biscuity with a touch of grassiness. The
carbonation and mouthfeel were absolutely perfect for this style. The
level of hoping was just enough to balance the sweetness of the malt and
to allow the flavor's of the malt to shine through without becoming too
sweet. Most homebrewers I have known, especially those who work with
malt extracts tend to stick to the darker styles because the stronger
flavor of the darker malts tends to cover up flaws in the finished
product. To produce a lighter style beer this tasty is indeed impressive.
