Product details

More complex than an "ordinary" low-gravity bitter, an ESB is a showcase for high-quality hops and brewing skill, meant to be enjoyed with consideration rather than merely quaffed.
Think of this as a British Bitter squared - more malt and more hops equals higher gravity, bigger body, more bitterness, and more intense flavors and aromas. A more complex beer than an "ordinary" low-gravity bitter, an ESB is a showcase for high-quality hops and brewing skill, meant to be enjoyed with consideration rather than merely quaffed. Our kit pours with a rich red color and white head and pronounced aromas of hop and fruit.

Solid ale

I had this one 3 weeks in the primary and then bottled. It has turned out very nice - starts out with a malty, caramel-like flavor and is balanced with a great hop bitterness.

ESB Kit

I've only had one imported English ESB. The beer from this kit wasn't like that, but I can't really say which beer wasn't true to the style.

ESB - first shot

Good first try for me on this one, but instead of fermenting for 3 weeks, I wonder if secondary fermentation may have refined it a bit. A little heavy on the hops....
