Thames Beers

ESB Label

The bottled Thames Welsh ESB starts an opaque dark brown color with a creamy head. Bold, rich malty aromas first leap from the glass. The complex malts offer sherry-like notes. The medium-bodied brew delivers a dry, malty flavor that is well rounded and matched with a very smooth mouthfeel. At 6.5% ABV, it makes an impressive showing as a full-flavored Extra Special Bitter that features more than just hops.
