Although classified as a Pale Ale by the brewery, our panel found it to be more of a full-bodied and well-balanced extra special bitter (ESB). After its introduction, the brew quickly became the brewery’s flagship beer. It’s brewed with massive amounts of English malt which are balanced nicely with East Kent Goldings hops. Look for a fresh sweet caramel malty nose with a fair amount of spicy hoppiness evident in this deep amber ale. We found its body medium and flavor packed with a complex toasty sweet malt profile and enough hop bitterness to please most hopheads. Note a dry hop lingering finish. We’d have to agree with The Yankee Brew News when it suggests that this ale would pair perfectly with clams and other seafood appetizers.
The Buzzards Bay Brewing Company is based in the heart of a southeastern Massachusetts farming community. The brewery uses a portion of its 140 acres to grow hops, barley, and pumpkins for their ales and lagers, producing truly handcrafted ales. It’s no small coincidence that this region of the country is known for producing some of the finest hops in the world.

The family owned and operated brewery was founded in the summer of 1998 and by that winter was producing 3,000 gallons of ale a day. The Russells brew, bottle, and package all of their microbrews at the brewery. Another interesting tid bit about this entrepreneurial operation is that they also own and run a very successful MA winery, Westport Rivers.

Head Brewer Gary "Goose" Gosselin began brewing beer professionally in 1990. Goose brings a bounty of knowledge, passion, and experience to Buzzard's Bay Brewing. He began his career in a Boston brewpub and has held the title of brewmaster at several top-notch brewpubs in Providence, Rhode Island and Albany, New York. Goose prides himself on using the finest malts and hops in the world as well as in practicing the vanishing art of all natural carbonation through secondary fermentation. You’re gonna love the Goose and the beers he’s made for you this month by the time you get through your shipment!
