Bottle & keg (USA); Pasteurised.
First brewed in 1971. Ingredients: Pale Ale malt, Crystal malt and Maize; Target, Challenger, Northdown and Goldings hops.
Brewed at 5.5% ABV in cask and 5.9% ABV in bottle, ESB is a true liquid legend, and should be savoured as such.
ESB has a wonderful rich mahogany appearance. Taking in the nose, the beer is bursting with cherry and orange, balanced by soft malty toffee and caramel notes. The flavour delivers everything you would expect from such a full-bodied ale. The unique blend of Northdown, Target, Challenger and Goldings hops imparts grassy, peppery notes on the tongue along with intense citrus fruit characters of grapefruits, oranges and lemons. The blend of Pale Ale and Crystal malts in the brew give a biscuity, toffee element to the beer. A smooth, mellow bitterness lingers on the palate to give a superbly satisfying finish.

Vackert bärnstensfärgad med medelstor skumkrona. Mycket knäck och smörkola i doften blandat med fin fruktighet av aprikoser och lite pomerans. Söt och god smak med massor av knäck och kola, fruktigheten finns också där och det hela avslutas med en bra beska. En riktigt fin klassisk ESB.

Nutty, bready, a bit of fruit like red apple and pumpkin. Smooth texture, low carbonation, malty with a low to medium bitterness.

Bottle a week from its best-before, is actually slightly past it, sadly. Pours a rich red-brown with a small, fast-settling head, fruit, cocoa and honey aromas, toasty caramel and dark marmalade but with a faint tart, papery tang. Dry and hoppy finish wirh hints of oak.

Aroma intenso e agrad�vel. Cor avermelhada, amargor balanceado, por�m deixando uma certa suavidade em seu paladar.
