extra special bitter (ESB)
delicate & toasty
One of the unique and brilliant things about this year's Beery Christmas Advent Calendar is that we asked breweries for a beer style that they wouldn't usually brew. For example, we asked the traditional Swedish Poppels brewery to brew a typical English beer, namely an Extra Special Bitter. It couldn't be more English! In England it's of course a super popular style, but what happens to this ESB of Swedish origin? ESB spreads light alcohol scents with spicy and earthy tones typical of what we know in English hops. If you smell longer you may discover traditional English fragrances of marmalade, sultanas, plums and figs - like that of a classic christmas pud. The taste has the same palette - some woody notes, bitter marmalade with a soft taste of caramel and white bread.
