Yards Brewing Company, straight out of the heart of Philadelphia, and an integral part of Philly Beer Week (plug!), deliver nicely with their Extra Special Ale (ESA). This ESA was originally intended to soothe the palates for the cask-ale connoisseurs but became a standard edition to their flagship lineup.
This Extra Special Bitter Scarlet Lady Ale from Stoudts Brewing Company, delivers a great brew at 5% ABV. I really enjoyed reviewing this ale as I found it to be quite good for my palette. The pour was from a 12 oz bottle into a pint glass and poured a dark, reddish amber color with an off-white head.
