AHB ESB (English Extra Special Bitter) Beer Kit



English Extra Special Bitter

UK Ale Beer Kit

Style: English-Style Extra Special Bitter

ABV: 5.1%

Color: Amber

Extra Special Bitter is a traditional English ale which is stronger than the Ordinary Bitter, but less strong than Pale Ale. You could consider E.S.B. to be the beer on which American microbreweries have based many of their Amber Ales.  E.S.B. is medium-full bodied, with a deep amber color and fantastic head retention. This beer has enough hops for nice aroma and flavor, but hop bitterness isn't as powerful as in Pale Ale or IPA. Imported British malt, hops, yeast and grains are used exclusively in this recipe.


All our Beer Kits come in a variety of Formulations with two yeast styles and enough ingredients to make 5 Gallons. You can choose from Malt Extract with Steeping Grains, Partial Mash, and All-Grain. You also can choose between Dry and Liquid Yeast. We recommend purchasing an ice pack for liquid yeast purchases that will be shipped.

  • Malt Extract (if applicable)
  • Grains, milled
  • Yeast
  • Bottling Sugar
  • Bottle Caps
  • Instructions
  • Hops
  • Muslin Bag (large)
