A hoppy Northwest style red ale. Lots of late addition Cascade hops give this malty red ale a floral and spicy aroma. Finishes with a subtle malty sweetness.

Sample at the brewery tap room. This brew is a dark reddish-amber color with a medium off-white head that diminishes steadily to a film. Partial rings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of malt, caramel and hops. Light to medium body with a sweet caramel malt character and notes of ripe fruit and mild hops. The finish is lightly bitter with a short citrusy hops aftertaste. Decent overall.

On draft at the brewery. I suppose it is the English ale years that pushes this beer into the ESB category. Either way, it is delicious. A spicy red ale that is easy to drink, considering its decent alcohol content. I enjoyed it - but wouldnt have placed it in the ESB category on my own.

On tap @ Georgetown Liquor Company. Pours dark amber with thin lingering head. Aroma is caramel and roasted malts with just a hint of hops. Taste is thick caramel malts with nice floral hops on the finish. A solid red and a local favorite.

UPDATED: MAY 10, 2015 Tap at Fiddlers 2/4/10 Really nice rich red-brown pour, lovely grapefruit hop aroma with plenty of caramel wrapped around the citrus. Quite a bit stronger than your usual red ale, this one is definitely a PacNW red, pushing IPA territory rather than coming anywhere near British ESB authenticity. And that turns out to be largely a good thing; the beer is lovely and dry, not overwhelmingly bitter but certainly would not be boring even to a diehard hophead. A pleasant surprise. 7/4/7/4/14=3.6

Growler revisit 5/9/15 Description above pretty much stands. I wouldnt call it dry as I did above, but it was indeed a pleasant surprise given my priors on PacNW red ales and on Georgetown brewing. Id drop it to about 7/3/7/3/14=3.4 and Ill update accordingly.
