Nothing But Love – ESB
Nothing But Love
Extra Special Bitter – 5%
4PK – 16oz Cans
“Nothin’ But Love” is a hop-saturated ESB, and the first in a series of beers dedicated to exploring the intricacies of slightly tweaked variations on Classic English Pub Ales. This ESB takes a traditional grist of Maris Otter and a dash of Crystal malts, but absolutely pummeled with Fuggles and East Kent Goldings hops in the whirlpool. Like, a higher rate than most of our IPAs… It was a lot.
“Nothin’ But Love” starts off with an intoxicating aroma of floral honeysuckle, Orange marmalade, herbacious fun-times, and super sticky resin. The classic, light, toasted biscuit character fades sharply into the backbone, but provides an excellent backdrop for the hops and firm bitterness. At first reminiscent of ESBs of yesteryore, it quickly veers into Danktown. A righteous riff on a classic, for sure.
