3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap @ Breakside. Nice orange/amber pour with a white head. There’s kind of an overwhelming estery quality to this. Big time apple, pear, and golden raisin. There’s some honey and crusty bread to it, too. Light bitterness of grassy hops and tea leaves. Same sweet fruit and malt flavors as I get on the nose. Maybe a bit of caramel as well.

Draught at Breakside Restaurant & Pub Brewery. Sweet light caramel nose with a touch of pasture and manure. Hazy light copper. Night light hopping and moderate caramelly flavors. Thin-medium body. Thin but a pleasant West Coast sort of bitter.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
At the Milwaukie taproom, a bit mild and a bit high in alcohol for what I think of as an ESB. Not much punch to this one.

Another one of those beers that can fall into two categories. The brewery calls it a bitter, and it definitely has bitter characteristics. Light hoppiness in the malt body. Amber colour with a thin white head. Light malty aroma,. Doesn’t stand up to spicy foods, but would be good with fish and chips or bangers and mashed aardapels
