Five Barrel Brewing
Five Barrel ESB
Brewery: Five Barrel
Style: ESB (Extra Special Bitter)
Format: 330ml Bottle
English bitters typically fall into three varieties: Mild, Bitter and Extra Special Bitter or ESB. They all share the same affinity for malt and hops, but vary in strength and flavour. We love English style beers and thought we'd better develop a beer good enough to be served from a genuine hand pump.
We don't use conventional hop varieties for our ESB, but we reckon they play an awesome part in creating a malt forward style ale with a rounded hop flavour. Marmalade, orange and spice balanced wonderfully with a sweet toffee malt base.
Best served at cellar temperature (12C) to get the most out of the English yeast we use.
