Extra Special Bitter is the premium offering of the traditional English bitter family. The other two are “ordinary” and “special”. Usually not extra bitter on the palate ESB’s feature a very robust caramel malt and fermentation profile. Our’s is brewed with English target and kent golding hops and fermented with a yeast originated from the one and only Fuller’s brewery in London.

On tap at the brewpub in August 2009. Reviewed from notes.

Pours a moderate copper color with a nice white head and some good sticky lacing. The nose is light floral and earthy hops with a bit of caramel. The taste is the same, with some slight bitterness overtaking a bready body. Light to medium in feel and moderately bitter. Drinks quite well and was one of their better beers.
