Current Down at The Delta

Here is a glass of the current Down At The Delta ESB. Crystal clear reddish amber with great head. At first I was not pleased with the hops, and I am still not exactly happy, but they have mellowed and the grassy aroma has dissipated. This beer is actually a bit too hoppy in bitterness for me, and is lacking in the nice delta hop citrus aroma, but actually closer to a proper ESB. It has turned out to be very balanced.

I used amber malt instead of the victory this time around. I have been told they are interchangeable, but I believe the amber is far more biscuity, or the biscuit flavor is sharper than that of victory malt.
