3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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
