ESB Wine Details

Description: Pours a brilliant copper with golden highlights and a moderate cream colored head. The aroma is of candy like sweetness, floral, and slight caramel malt depth. A taste reveals a bright hop character. Floral and caramel quickly give way to mild malt backbone, which becomes a lasting hop resin flavor begging for another sip. The ESB brings even more depth as your palate adjusts.

Varietal Definition
ESB - Extra Strong Bitter:
Extra Strong Bitter pocesses medium to strong hop qualities in aroma, flavor and bitterness. The residual malt sweetness of this richly falvor, full-bodied bitter is more pronounced than in other bitters.
