Fuller's ESB (Extra Special Bitter) is a malty, hoppy strong ale, with a delightful toffee character and more alcohol than the other bitters.
ESB was first been brewed by the Fuller's familly brewery in 1971. It was initially intended as a winter beer to replace a beer named Old Burton Extra, however thanks to popular demand it is now available all year round.
Since its creation it has scooped more than its share of awards, including 3 beer of the year awards, 2 prizes at the Mondial de la Bière and a host of gold medals, to become Fuller's Champion Ale.
In the glass, ESB Champion Ale has a wonderful mahogany body, boasting rich cherry and orange flavours, balanced by sweet caramel malt notes, with a deliciously bitter, nutty finish.
