Across the Pond ESB is a straightforward beer in the style of the English pub ale. A rich, malty backbone supplemented by Simpson's Medium Crystal and Special Roast malts supports traditional East Kent Goldings hops, with a slightly heavy bittering addition and some hops for the finish. Although the style has bitter in its name, it is not agressively hoppy like an American IPA. Instead, it has just the right bittering hop note that seamlessly balances on the malty body of the beer. A beer just like those pub ales served across Britain, Across the Pond will whisk you away with one sip!
