HARGREAVES HILL ESB

Hargreaves Hill ESB. I first tried this on tap at Bitter Phew in Sydney. Working my way through the taps, I came across it by chance.

Not sure what hops were used but I read somewhere they use hops from Australia, NZ or the US depending on seasonal availability. It’s a sessionable 5.2% ABV.

Light amber colour with a fine head. Nice citrus, stonefruit and tobacco aroma. A clean and refreshing citrus, grapefruit, stonefruit and passionfruit hop flavour followed by a smooth tobacco hop flavour nicely balanced by a caramel and slightly bready malt flavour.

Crisp, refreshing and moderately bitter finish. It’s like an English ESB with fruity US pale ale flavours. It was so tasty and sessionable one pint wasn’t enough.

I’ve since tried it on tap at the Hargreaves Hills cellar door in Yarra Glen as well as in bottles and it has been consistently good.

An interesting fusion of beer styles which works beautifully.

 

8/10
