4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap at Henry’s, Portland. Very red/amber, with lasting beige head. Bright fruity aroma. Red fruits. Goodish malt in mouth. Really reminiscent of ESBs I have known, malty in mouth with some coffee. Nice finish, fruit and more malt. Good ESB, bit like Fullers ESB, but much more pronounced flavours.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at the brewpub. Pours a mostly transparent ruddy brown color with a finger of thick bubbled off-white head. Fruity rainier cherries, caramel, biscuit, and leafy hops form a solid, clean bouquet. Light bodied, crisply carbonated mouthfeel. Well attenuated body with a dry, refreshing finish. Plenty of hearty chewy malts on the front of the palate, with a light fruity cherry flavor, and dries out nicely on the backend with a final smack of herbal spicy hops. Solid example.

On tap at the brewpub during ABA Beer Tour 07. Pours a clear coppery amber brew with an average off-white head that dissolves slowly. Aroma of light caramel malt with other scents of busicuits, fruit esters and flowery hops. Taste is lightly carbonated, medium bodied with a dry biscuit flavor. Finish is light, crisp with a mild hop bitter aftertaste.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Nice deep amber coloured body with a very thin slightly off-white head. Aroma of clean english hops, some malt and not much else. Medium-bodied; Assertive english hops very noticeable with toffee, nuts and a bit of malt tucked in. Aftertaste clean and bitter - decent. Overall, a good beer to try, not too complex, but definitely well-rounded. I sampled this beer on draught in Portland, Oregon on 09-September-2006.

UPDATED: JUL 7, 2008 A hazy amber beer with a thin off-white head. The aroma is sweet malty with grassy notes of hop, and so is the flavor with a dry and very bitter finish.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap at the PDX Green Dragon. Pours dark amber with a creamy white head. Big citrus and earthy hop nose. Quick sweetness up front, but blasted out by the hops. More like a red IPA then an ESB, not enough maltiness to it to keep the hops in check.
