ReNEWale Extra Special Bitter has smooth caramel malt notes up front and fruity esters contributed by the yeast. Kent Goldings and Northern Brewer Hops add a deep earthy and grassy hop flavor and aroma. Extra special! Extra balanced! Extra tasty!

Clear red copper, tan foam fades. Caramel malt aroma. Roasted caramel malt taste, grassy hops, citrus yeastiness. Softly carbed, light-medium bodied, moderately hopped. Long dirty bitter hop finish. Next. NFL (Not For Lagerboys)

mrhoppy (1288) - Santa Clara, California, USA - FEB 12, 2013
Decent but nothing to make you say I want to try this again except the price $3.99. A good bitter but not very special. It tastes like their Radient ale tweaked to be a Bitter.

XaenDovet (1282) - British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 13, 2013
On tap at Darby's. abundant caramel and muddy nose, on a copper base. Taste roasty caramel malt, with a long semi-dry finish. Crispy in my mouth.

Thisis12ptfont (1107) - Los Angeles, CA, California, USA - MAR 3, 2013
Extremely faint aroma of brown sugar. Brownish copper color. Metallic hops upfront with a cinnamon/brown sugar backbone. Overall, not a whole lot to say about this. It’s very basic and doesn’t bring much flavor to the table.

cstuartj (1020) - Washington, USA - MAR 8, 2013
Dull gold in color. Thin pale head. Really nice malty, bready nose. A bit over malty attack. Good finish.

BEENJAMIN (290) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JAN 22, 2013
ReNEWale 2013 ESB pours a beautiful copper hue, crystal clear with a lasting off white head. Subtle hops and sweet malts for aroma. Sweet and rich in flavor, finishes incredibly smooth. Almost true to the style just a little too rich for me overall. A great session beer none the less.

Shink (177) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JAN 28, 2013
Out of the bottle. Pours a dark caramel color with a fine white head. Smell is a little off, but not so much that it detracts from the beer. The taste is sweet with a slight bitter finish. This is a solid beer.

Whids (60) - - MAY 8, 2013
Dark amber in colour with a thin beige head. Sweet caramel aroma. Mild hops with a nice bitter finish. Very thin in body that does detract from the overall quality of this beer.
