didn't know they made one and was shopping at Kroger today and saw it but was hesitant.

Anyone have any thoughts on it?

Very tasty, but too pricey at $8.99 a six pack. I got some at $5.99 on sale.

I really love it, although it seems my local market is completely out now. I'm already a fan of their american pale ale. The ESB is maltier than a pale ale but has a nice hoppiness to it. I love it even more than the pale ale. Give it a try!

I really didn't like it when I tried it, but reading everyone else's review on it, I must have gotten a bad batch, it had no flavor at all, it really tasted like a BMC.

I drank a six pack of it and thought it was great. Slighty maltier than the pale ale, and i believe it is a little stronger as well. Very good.

Yes I enjoyed it, guess the ABV is high though as it knocked me for a loop two nights ago!

Yeah, got a sixer a couple weeks ago, amazing beer, I loved it. Great bitterness at the start but finished with a nice malty sweetness. I think it is my new fav SN beer.
