COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Thunder Trail ESB stays true to our English Brewing Heritage. With a strong backbone of Maris Otter and Crystal malts, this Extra Special Bitter is balanced by earthy, spicy, English hops. Our Ringwood yeast strain imparts a dis-tinctly fruity character that is accented by dry-hopping with a modest amount if Palisade hops. We hope you enjoy this quality session ale — wherever the Trail may take you.

Bottle after a run. Aroma of fruits and earthy woody English hops. A medium body and no detectable alcohol heat. Smooth and easy to drink but a bit heavier than I expected an ESB to be. Could not detect much hops in the flavor.

Pretty solid beer, not too flashy. A good beer to have more than one of. Taste is good with a nice malt backbone mixed with earthy hops. Probably won’t seek this one but if I run into again I know it’s decent.
