Dark amber, white frothy head and lacing. Sips medium and is quite hoppy for a esb. Man I Love this brewery! Malty and hoppy..perfect balance...I guess that’s an esb! Great session brew. Had off tap from wob, left over from brewery

On tap at Airways, pours a cloudy orange with a small white head. Aroma and flavour is true to style, with English malt, some butterscotch, and just enough English hops. Well-balanced, with everything in proportion. Solid beer, just a boring style.

On tap. Hoppy for an ESB but due to that I think this is one of the best esbs I have ever had. Easy drinking and full of flavor. An instant classic!

onceblind (7496) - Denver, Colorado, USA - MAY 5, 2014
Slightly hazy light copper with very very little head. The aroma was light and nutty sweet with a wee touch of nougat on the nose. Smooth taste with some nutty smooth semisweet malts, and a quiet biscuity finish.

after4ever (7620) - Brier, Washington, USA - NOV 18, 2012
Draft at NCBC. Pours a slightly hazy burnished medium amber with a loose white head. Big toasty fresh caramel nose, lots of nuts and bread crust. Creamy medium body with lively carb. Toasty, nutty, crusty, caramelly mid palate with a mild dry finish. Nice ESB.

Cask at the Airways Tap Room, but note that this is a summer special: the Jet City infused with lavender. Hazy amber pour with a brief, white head leaving a coarse lace. The lavender is present in the nose, along with some caramel malt and some citrus hops. Medium body wit low carbonation, as you get with a Real Ale - marvelous. Caramel, lavender (somehow), cinnamon, almonds and toast. Fairly short, bittersweet finish which impertinently requests another pint. Good stuff - the cask ales from Airways are top notch and this special edition ranks highly.

AmEricanbrew (6737) - Same Trailer, Different Park, Louisiana, USA - AUG 22, 2011
Clear amber color/ ivory head. Spicy caramel, dark bread aromas. Medium body. Lightly sweet toffee, toasted caramel, hawaiian bread flavors--a bit thin but decent

Last Call - Seattle Beer Week 2010
Nice ESB flavors – Amber in color, slight haze with a thin white head. The nose was filled with malt and hops balance. Flavoring was ESB bitter with a good caramel malt. Very tasty and my first Airways Brewing beer.

BillKismet (3863) - Seattle, Washington, USA - MAY 10, 2010
Pours and amber-bodied ale topped with a lightly red-tanned thick head. Medium-malting with subdued hop nose (Willamette?). Characterized my a somewhat dankness. Delicately fruity body with some darker malts sprinkled in that push it to a deeper fruitiness. Infused with light-kilned red-amber malts.
