Extra Special Bitter

This British-inspired extra special bitter was named after a Billy Bragg song. The Englishman is one of the most notable political singer/songwriters of our time. The style is more full-bodied and flavorful than the ‘Best’ or ‘Special’ Bitters we have done in the recent past (Adams’ Best, Poetic Justice, etc). – and it is a bit higher in alcohol than traditional British version. It has a rich copper color with a malt-dominant aroma. Notes of toasted malt, caramel, and dates are present from the use of CaraAroma and Special B malts. Dry-hopping with Styrian Goldings gives a spicy background in the aroma and the palate. The medium bitterness helps to balance out the malty sweetness.
