I would think it's something we did wrong as opposed to the quality of the ingredients.
I mean it taste just like soda water. No flavor at all.
Extract, partial mash or DME?
Not sure what you could have done wrong in order to acheive no flavor...
What was your OG and final?
Maybe let it age a bit longer, two weeks is probably not enough time. I brew an amber bock that taste like "sweet" carbonated water until it has aged for at least a month then it has a nice malty flavor followed with the hops flavor. ESB's should have a firm hop flavor and be a "mild" tasting brew, but it shouldn't taste like soda water. some times it takes hops a bit of time to come out.
Is it "lightly" malty at all? it should be.
