Fuller’s ESB Clone

They’re the United Kingdom’s most decorated brewery. They devised the extra special bitter (ESB) beer style that has become a perennial favorite of North American craft brewers. Their name is synonymous with traditional British ales. They’re one of the few independent London breweries that have managed to survive and thrive while others have faded away. They’re Fuller, Smith & Turner, though their products are simply called Fuller’s.

This ESB has won more CAMRA awards than any other beer. It was chosen as Britain’s best strong ale seven times and was three times selected as the Champion Beer of Britain. The amber ale reveals a rich malt character and is noticeably aggressive on the palate. Many drinkers pick out an orange-citrus essence, which is characteristic of the house yeast. It finishes with a hop bitterness that lingers without harshness.
