Our first ESB, Ernest is a full round and honest beer with a malty backbone and a balanced assertive bitterness. Amarillo and Cascade hops give a resinous piny character and the Whitbread yeast allows the malt and hops to show like a true English ESB.
Aroma: Malty, resinous, piny
Character: Soft sweet malt character with a balanced assertive bitterness
Colour: Dark amber
Pairing: Red meat, pizza and burgers.
