Evolution Exile ESB

By: Rass Wolfman

evolution exile esbAfter trying Evolution Craft Brewing Co.’s IPA as per recommendation from my good friend The Craft Beer Deer, my wife and I decided to pick up their Exile ESB ale. After a hard day of hitting the books I cracked open one and boy was I in for a surprise

First Impression: Evolution has an interesting, abbreviated logo. Exile ESB has a rather bland and simple, brown label. It is good that craft beers aren’t judged by their cover, because Exile would’ve failed.

Pour: A dark amber color with very little head.

Taste:  At first sip there was a metallic taste that I just couldn’t put my finger on but as I got through the first one there was a nice caramel malty taste that lasted for a nice amount of time afterwards. I would strongly recommend this beer with a nice steak or any type of meat for that matter.

Grade: B+

ABV: 5.8%

IBU: 48
