Extra Special / Strong Bitter (ESB) |  5.80% ABV

Availability: Year-round

Notes/Commercial Description:
Brewed in the style of a traditional British ESB (Extra Special Bitter), we’ve been making ESB continuously since 1987, and it’s now the benchmark for the Amber beer category. Despite having “bitter” in its name, Redhook ESB is really not that bitter at all. This brew is all about the balance of caramel malt sweetness completed by spicy, citrusy hops.

A: A beautiful gold with a pale head.

S: Citrusy hops meet the nose followed by a really nice floral aroma.

T: Grapefruity hops up front are followed by some more mild hoppy flavors. Caramel, roasted nuts, and a slight toasty flavor. A nice malty taste on the tail end.

M: Smooth with a slight carbonation that goes down nicely.
