An English-style Extra Special Bitter (ESB). The perfect pub pint to share with your mates. Public Ale’s name is an ode to a sessionable style that not only has been commonly found in English public houses for centuries but can be enjoyed today by everyone within our Community.
ESB was originally brewed by the English brewery Fuller, Smith & Turner of London (Fuller’s ESB) in the mid 20th century as a winter ale. At Community Beer Company we appreciate this timeless, quaffable beer style and will bring it to you year round as our “Public Ale.” In reverence to the best ESB’s of England, we brew it with nearly all English ingredients: 100% English malts, a blend of English, German and American hops, our house ale English yeast strain and of course our own crystal clear, filtered water. The subtle complexities of this beer begin with a base of 100% Maris Otter English pale malt – prized for its superior, rich, bready taste – which adds a malt complexity that is difficult to achieve with modern, higher yielding malt varieties. English crystal malt increases the malt complexity, brings amber color and some residual sweetness, all of which mingles well with the fully expressed fruity esters developed by our house ale yeast during fermentation. While the hops are noticeable, they are part of an integrated whole, leaving the beer very well balanced and drinkable.
