ESB, short for extra special bitter, is an English style ale characterized by a rich caramel malt flavor and assertive hoppiness. In Britain, most ales are bitters which are organized by strength into ordinary, special and extra special. The fruity undertones in the flavor of Jackson’s ESB are provided by an imported English yeast. The alcohol content is 5.7%.
