Lightning BreweryPoway, CA

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.

Our well rounded approach to the classic British Ale. There’s middle of the road, and there’s middle of the river. And if there’s one thing that’s important in the middle of the river – it’s balance. Our ESB is incredibly well balanced with a slight toasted malt flavor, traditional British hop accents with just a hint of pine and citrus from the unexpected Amarillo / Ahtanum dry-hop.

Strong Bitter6.2% ABV45 IBU

Moa Beer CompanyBlenheim, New Zealand

Moa Five Hop Winter Ale utilises pilsner, Vienna, Munich and crystal malts to produce a distinctive mouth feel and flavour. New Zealand grown B Saaz and Hallertau aroma hops are used to produce an ale with an extremely high bitterness. An English ale yeast completes this ‘Brewer’s Beer’. Moa Five Hop is a strong ale fermented at warm temperatures to maximise aromatic and floral aromas. The English ale yeast provides a low apparent attenuation and sweeter finish. Bottle conditioned, Moa Five Hop will age well. Moa Five Hop is best served at approximately 9-11˚C in a tulip glass.
