Bomber Brewing ESB ReviewBomber Brewing – Extra Special Bitter (ESB) Review

In East Vancouver’s Bomber Brewing’s initial and standard offering comes the ESB, an Extra special bitter ringing in at a modest 5.2%. This beer pours a copper colour topped with two fingers of dense and lacing head. This ESB has a nice maltiness to the aroma alongside a mild caramel sweetness and light hop. Nothing stands out as being overly unique but it is a great smelling and pleasant aroma. The flavour is rather light with a cautious, malt heavy approach to the ESB. This is not a bad thing though as the Bomber Brewing ESB is a great tasting sessionable ale. Notes of light caramel, toasted malts and a pleasant hop bitterness make for a well balanced and extremely delicious beer. Pick up a six pack at the brewery or your favourite  liquor store as this is surely a go-to for years to come.
