Bright clear amber color. Delicate, citrusy aromas of orange marmalade and raisin scone with a silky, crisp, effervescent, dry-yet-fruity medium body and an effortless, interesting, medium-length lemon cake, honeyed nuts, and kale finish. A fruity and refreshing bitter ale.

Extra special bitters (ESB) range from golden to brown in color and are around 4.5-6% in alcohol. They feature accents of hop aromas and, despite their name, are characterized by non-bitter, fruity flavors. Of the three bitter styles, ESBs are the most malty and highest in alcohol. Bitters originated as English specialties, though they are now widely-emulated in North America, sometimes with domestically-grown hops imparting a more assertive character than in traditional English takes on the style. Noteworthy examples of this style include: Fuller’s Original ESB, Moylan’s Extra Special Bitter, Left Hand Sawtooth Ale and Rogue XS Imperial Younger’s Special Bitter.
