Huvila E.S.B. – is a dark brown strong bitter, which is robustly hopped with Goldings hops. The aroma is fruity and warming, the taste is full and complex, with a long, hoppy and bitter after taste. A true E.S.B. with a lot of individual style. It is sold to retail clients in Finland through Alko, the Finnish monopoly retail distributor of beers with more than 4.7% Alc. It is also available on tap and in bottles in bars and restaurants across Finland. Since 2011, Huvila E.S.B. is also available in shops in Estonia through Drink Baar.

On tap, Kaisla pub. Red-orange, quite clear. Not head at all. Wonderful fresh fruit, and citric aroma, with a strong hoppy erbaceous component. Wonderfully matching with the strong hoppy taste, followed by a good fizzy feeling. The bitterness coat all the mouth and lasts for a while. Medium body. Wonderful ESB.

larsga (7316) - Oslo, NORWAY - JUN 23, 2008
Medium offwhite head does not last. Amber body. Fruity floral aroma with malty notes. Powerful dry-sweet taste of floral resin with dusty faintly roasty malt notes. Sharp, harsh mouthfeel. Bitter dandelion aftertaste. A bit on the sharp side, and a bit lacking in depth, but still good. (0.25l draft at Oluthuone Kaisla, Helsinki.)

Bov (12018) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - MAY 20, 2008
from crackedkettle.com - pours a cloudy dark red-amber colour under an elusive beige foam; nice lacing; aroma of litchies, almonds and cloves; initialy creamy mouthfeel but soon continues tart and sharply bitter; medium-bodied underneath; the finish is long, dry and very bitter with fruity and honeyish notes - a beautiful hoppy brew
