This is my take on an ESB, but using American hops and primarily 2-Row instead of Maris Otter. This was my first BIAB, and I am very happy with the results even though it has only been in the bottle for 14 days. It is light caramel in color, a nice off-white head and the hops, although somewhat prevalent, do not overpower the malt.
