Elk Hair ESB

Elk Hair ESB

This traditional brew, Extra Special Bitter (ESB), is an English-style pale ale.  The hop count is lower than North American pales and focuses on bittering rather than aromatic hops.  The wheat malt is used to create a reliable head retention while the flaked barley gives a malty mouth-feel.    This is a lighter bodied brew with good balance that will reach a wide spectrum of beer drinkers.
