Default I brewed an ESB using us-05

Can it be considered an ESB? Everything else is English. Also I didnt get a crazy attenuation(1.035OG 1.009 FG).

You'll miss some of the yeast esters but I'm sure it will still taste good.

In my opinion, what matters more is how does it taste. Does the Appearance, Aroma, Taste, and Mouthfeel meet BJCP guidelines for an ESB? Style is not dependent on ingredients, rather a style may traditionally use certain ingredients.

Yes, there isn't a traditional yeast associated with ESBs and US-05 is nice and clean. It will let the malts shine.

I don't know the exact fermentation temperature, but it fermented in a 66f room, I guess that should be low 70's? Maybe I'll get some ester flavours.

@Bigb I brewed this specially for my first contest(a bjcp), I tried to be as close to the style as possible... but I mixed the yeast(I reused washed yeast, I should start labelling the yeast). I haven't tried it yet, its bottled but not ready.
