ESB stands for Extra Special Bitter. Seven different kinds of grains give this beer a very interesting malt profile. A balanced dose of Centennial and Goldings hops make this a very satisfying session ESB.

mcberko (14659) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 17, 2015
On tap at North Sound, pours a hazy copper with a small white head. Nose and flavour are pretty restrained, with English floral hops and some biscuity malt to back. Not overly interesting, but competently brewed.

fiulijn (19347) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 23, 2014
Draught at the brewery, 6.1% ABV
Hazy amber color with small head. Light caramel character, dry mouthfeel, some fruity esters, and like all beers at North Sound, it’s fairly bitter. Clean, pleasant, atypical ESB.

Taster @ North Sound Brewing. Notes: "Sessionable. Nothing offensive but pales in flavor to the others in the sampler."

after4ever (7608) - Brier, Washington, USA - OCT 12, 2011
Draft at special brwws. Pours a cloudy medium amber with a loose and creamy white head. Big toasty nutty nose, smells like pine nuts sauteeing in strong olive oil. Creamy medium body with lively carb. Toasty, nutty, olive oily mid palate. Mild nutty finish. Good esb for sure.

BillKismet (3857) - Seattle, Washington, USA - MAY 1, 2011
Appealing amber hued body on which is set a thick tanned head. Cidery and candi malt whiffs waft off the glass, soon to be followed by nutty brown malt wavers. The soul of this brew seems more winter warmer than typical ESB. Lots of candi malt and nut flavors.

riversideAK (6160) - Shoreline, Washington, USA - APR 30, 2011
Nose is of caramel, toast, toffee, earth, floral notes, and a little peppery hops. Pours hazy amber, solid head, lace. The flavor has nice notes of caramel, toast, and brown bread followed by earthy floral hops with hints of pepper and dirt. Nice lingering hop flavor and bitterness. Solid drinkable offering from North Sound.
