Extra Special/Strong Bitter (English Pale Ale)
About Extra Special/Strong Bitter (English Pale Ale)
Extra Strong Bitters are gold to deep copper in color. As their name implies, these ales are decidedly bitter in flavor. The aroma of these bitters may vary in character, but expect a dominant malt and caramel character with a backing of hops and fruit. The bitterness of these beers is backed by a malty sweetness and a nutty, caramel body. These beers are medium in body, low in carbonation and finish somewhat dry.
