Extra Special Bitter is a term used by British brewers to signify their strongest and most expensive hopped or “bitter” pale ale. Consistent with the style, the flavors from Willamette and Fuggles are not allowed to dominate this ale. The malt rules! Foods with full flavor and heavy spices are an excellent compliment to ESB.

    Slightly cloudy apple cider-coloured brew. Smallish off-white head, but nice lacing left behind. Smells like caramel and malt. A tart initial bite which is not really to my liking...leaves quite a bitter taste in the mouth. A quality beer, just not my taste.

    This company loves to confuse people. One day it's Trafalgar, one day it's back to Old Mill (and both names are on the label). This one I am rating is 5% ABV, but is the new designed label. It says now... "Elora Special Bitter". The other one I reviewed a few weeks back (from my cellar), is 4.7% ABV and said "Elora ESB". So, I probably reversed both brew review (but I put them in the right ABV ones). I hope it make sense to you. This new version pours a clear golden-amber colour with hardly no head. Mild lacing is still formed and little coat tops the brew. Hardly any carbonation as well. The nose is fruity with some caramel and bready malt. A little sticky, but quite refreshing. Great tasting with lots of flavours. Caramel, fruits, bread, piney hops (but not too much) and toffee in the aftertaste. And all of that and quite fresh. A great ESB !

    650 mil bomber. Hard pour yeilds a light amber beer with a slightly off white 2 finger cap....reduced quickly. Light, fine- bubbled carbonation. Light aromas of sweet carmel malts and some tart green apple hops. Light bodied malty, sweet without cloying, buttery mouth feel... finishes clean as bittering takes over. Malty/woody finish...not bad for a Canadian ESB. Could use some aging to lose the diacetyl butterscotch.
