ESB Beer Label

Lakefront Brewing-Milwaukee WI.

5.7% ABV

If you haven’t had a chance to try some of the beers from Lakefront Brewing in Milwaukee WI, it’s time to take the plunge. They have a variety of beer styles available with the Extra Special Bitter being the subject of my discussion today. As my lovely bride and I prepared for a late summer grill-fest, it was suggested to us by one of our Wisconsin based friends that the E.S.B. was a perfect compliment to grilled foods such as steaks, brats, burgers, and grilled veggies. Oh baby, were they ever right! This is an English style bitter with a great amber color,( which you can see in the head after pouring as well.) It has a nice hoppy bite, with a slight touch of citrus that’s
kept in check with the right amount of malt. Very refreshing indeed. I would, (in my humble, yet snobby) opinion, give this beer a large
stein for my rating… beers to ya!
