Lightning American Amber

Brewed by Lightning Brewery

Strong Bitter7.5% ABV

Independent Craft Brewer Seal

This is our take on the English Extra Special Bitter. This recipe has been brewed largley unchanged for upwards of 25 years while our head brewer was still in graduate school. Our version is hoppier, more malty, and has a higher ABV than its British cousin, but retains a suprising balance and drinkability. A tall cream-colored head tops off this gorgeous dark amber beer.
