Brewers Description of this Extra Special Bitter:
“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.”
Peer into a glass of Extra Special Bitter to discover a blood-red orange appearance with a marginal head. An exhilarating caramel perfume with an hint of lime teases the nose. ESB has a smooth medium brawn that hoists a gentle honey sweet core. A creamy, yet harmoniously spicy, tone materializes midway that eventually concludes with a tart kicker. Despite it’s seemingly complex composition, ESB has complete cohesion.
Celebrate summer overlooking the city enjoying Redhook’s ESB.
