ESB (Extra Special Bitter) - 5.7%
Beau’s collaborated with Ottawa’s Tooth and Nail Brewing to create this drinkable “tip of the hat” to our regional heritage, Lock Monster: a British-style ESB (Extra Special Bitter). Lock Monster is third in a series of beers Beau’s will brew with friends across the nation to honour Ottawa 2017, a year-long celebration of Canada’s 150th birthday. A portion of proceeds from sales of Lock Monster ESB will go to support the CHEO Foundation (www.cheofoundation.com).
Lock Monster pours copper with a light haze and white foam. The aroma offers apricot and light citrus.The flavour is a mellow harmony of biscuity malt, fruit with supporting notes of caramel and treacle. A contrasting balanced hop bitterness asserts itself towards the finish. Delicate wood tannins are present in the aftertaste.
