5 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 20/20
As far as I know, this beer is only available at the brewery, on tap. It’s an exquisite beer--bright hop notes are married perfectly with the slight malt sweetness and Full Sail yeast. It’s fairly hoppy for an ESB, but I’d call it a near-perfect beer. My favorite beer from my favorite brewery.

4.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Malty and hoppy aroma, deep amber brown with reddish tiny, very fine head that clings to glass, medium weight smooth mouthfeel, malty and caramel to start, but strong follow of bitterness, not necessarily hops. Very tasty.

I like all of Full Sails beers, this is an excellent beer, hoppy, good malts and a real stand up taste.

bottle. clear burnt orange under a large, fluffy head. malty aroma with light floral hops. a bit of warmth in this one clocking in at 6.5. crystal malt flavors with some maris otter depth to the base malt. hops are a little more bitter in the flavor than the aroma suggests, but it’s still a wonderful malt forward brew that reminds me more of a fall beer or even a german marzen. really hits the spot.

Poured from 12 oz bottle into chilled tall glass. A perfect example of the style. Nice amber color and full, creamy white head. Smooth malt feel and enough hops to balance flavors. I’ve always enjoyed Full Sail brews and this one is my favorite that they produce. Gonna head back to Trader Joe’s and grab a couple more six packs to last me the rest of the month.

Looks, smells and tastes just like a ESB should. Nice off white head and clear medium amber appearance. Nice malty aroma with just the right amount of hop bitterness without over doing this style. Smooth silky mouth feel with little visual carbonation. The perfect ESB American Re-creation. Very easy to drink a six of this.

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.
