This is a new name for the former ESB. The publican, Rita, told me that they had to change the name because too many people would not try something with the name Extra Special Bitter. Bitter this is not, in fact, it tends more to its malt side than the bittering hops. It has a good flavor indeed and is quite drinkable. The look is of clear amber under an ivory head. It shows good lacing effect and is smooth on the palate. A good, refreshing beer that is none the less for its name.

This beer poured out a medium amber color. Formed a white head with a decent lace, even if the head subsided more than I would like. Light aroma of hops and malt. Slightly sweet, with a nice body for an ESB. I would consider it too sweet for an ESB, but not bad. As a side note, they offered to make it a Sour Apple ESB by adding the necessary liqour. If you look at an earlier Beerfly review of flavored beer here, I am not happy with this trend. As I said before, last I checked, that was not how it's done
