2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
12oz bottle. Pours carmel, offwhite head. Carmel aroma, carmely sweet taste, slight hop bitter, bitter finish. There’s something Full Sail-y about this, in not a good manner.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
A lovely crisp ESB. A nutty maltiness followed by a balanced hoppiness. Finishes dry and lingering. This brewery makes classic beers. Always well balanced. Never try too hard

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Another of those beers that seem everywhere, yet I’ve ignored it. Brown with white head. Caramelly and parsley aroma. Caramel malt flavour with a hop crispness in the finish.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draught. This is a decent little bitter that has some definite American character - a definite US hop tilt here.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
From the 12 fl. oz. bottle marked 06/24/13-66. It pours amber with a moderate, short-lived off-white head. The aroma is of toasted malts, butter, and fudge(?). Some whiffs of earthy hops but played down. Creamy and medium body. The taste has a prominent malty beginning and decent bitter finish like an ESB should but it does not seem overly bold like the ones I prefer.

3.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
12oz bottle. Pours medium amber with a white head. Easy drinking brew with caramel flavors along with a nice bitterness from the hops.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle:   Amber, faint copper hue, moderate sudsy sandy head, spotty lacing.   Slight biscuity nose, touch of fruitiness.   Very fruity up front, a little mealy and biscuity.   Not as crisp as I would have hoped.   Backside shows a lot of mealiness.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate.   A little ashy on the exit.   Lingering biscuit and mealy maltiness.   This one really needs to be a touch sweeter and brighter.   Can do without the mealiness too.   Tiz okay, but not the stuff I remember drinking when I was a wee lad.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Amber in color thin, white lasting head. Nose is toffee and English ale yeast. Flavor is right along the correct flavors for the style. Weak caramel, nuts and yeast. I don’t get any bitterness at all. All malt. No bottle date on the label. Hard to know if age has hurt this. Overall drinkable.

I grabbed the last bottle available of this Oregon Spring bitter in Georgia in the middle of August. It held up well through the Georgia summer heat and went down smooth on an evening on the veranda, bringing to mind the sweet cool smells of an Oregon spring.
