Extra Special Bitter or ESB is style originated in England and is very English. You really don’t see the style much in the US, not to say that they aren’t any American ESBs or any brewery brewing them. There are ESB style beers here in the US, it is that some other styles are more popular and tend to overshadow others, such as ESB. I like the ESB style. Mystery Brewing Company in Hillsbrough, North Carolina brews Ordinary Bitter Locksley, 3.8% ABV, and RB Malt is used here. This is a session ESB. Locksley pours a clear lighter copper color with a tight two finger white head that fizzes away at a decent pace leaving behind a little bit of lacing that does stay on long. The aroma is on the lighter side with biscuit and a bit of cracker. It’s all a little thin on the aroma. Taste is similar to the aroma with biscuits and cracker with a faint and thin bitter note on the end. The mouth feel is thin and light with a nice smooth finish. After taste is plan with a little linger of some very faint malt with a little biscuit that doesn’t say long. I don’t think this is a bad beer nor is it a good beer. It’s a bit in the middle, like C+. The taste is just there nothing much going on but not bad. It lives up to being sessionable. It is that to the T. Really nothing wrong with the beer yet nothing really stands out either. I might have this again and I kind of recommend this. Cheers! Please enjoy responsibly!
