English Pale Ale - Extra Special Bitter

This is going to be my last hopped ale for a little while. I decided on an English Pale Ale, of which ESB is the heaviest class. Maybe it's pure nostalgia, but I am really hoping to recreate the brews I drank back in Merry Olde England when I were a lad. So I got my (organic) Whitbread Goldings hops and my biscuit malt and my Marris Otter LME and my fingers crossed!
