This English-style extra special bitter features maris otter and pipkin floor-malted barley and is hopped varietally with east kent goldings from the redken farm in great Britain. Our own house yeast lends a subtle fruitiness and dry palate to this beer, with biscuit and caramel malt notes and a complex flowery, grassy hop character, Quite hoppy and yet remarkably smooth. it has been carbonated, conditioned, fined, and dry-hopped all in its conditioning/serving vessel, in the manner of English “real ale,” and as such is kissed by a light, pleasant carbonation. The finest available ingredients and painstaking attention and care have created yet another enjoyable new beer for cbc.
This very traditionally brewed e.s.b. was created in honor of the nuptials of former cbc’er Truxton wildes and his bride, dawn wigton.
