ESB [Type 45] 5.5% ABV
Anvil is a throughly American take on the Extra Stout Bitter. A bit more alcohol, and more hops as well. I quite liked this one. It had good balance of malts and hops, about right for a big beer. It poured a delicious dark brown with a big fluffy head on it. The hops definitely came on the finish, and helped cut the sweetness of the malt before it overstayed its welcome. I'll take one of these any day. 2 beers for you! Thanks again to Owen for providing the beer.
