Angeloregon (2055) - Portland, Oregon, USA - AUG 1, 2008
On tap at the Porterhouse in Mt. Vernon, WA--Poured a sharp ruby-orange body with a medium-sized white head. Fruity, clean, malty crisp citrus body with a highly drinkable prickly finish.

clear body, dark orangey/red hue. aroma and taste more like an amber ale. solid, but not what Iíd expect from an ESB.

BillKismet (3340) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JAN 31, 2008
UPDATED: AUG 3, 2008 Gorgeous red-amber with dense head. Nice hop aroma with a touch of grapefruit. Flavor is of powerful grapefruit which leads to a very bitter finish. Only strikes one flavor note.

CapFlu (4548) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 27, 2007
(Draught) Sampled at Taphouse in Seattle. A rather expensive sampler at $9.95 for four 4-ounce samples. Pours a deep amber body with a frothy, almond head. Nose is well malted with undertones of sharp hops. Flavour has balanced malt body with a decent bitter finish. Considering I hadnít heard of Georgetown previously, this was a pleasant surprise.

5000 (6300) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - NOV 9, 2007
Draught @ Collinís Pub: Heavy amber, copper hues, fairly dark and dirty, thin sudsy off-white head, sparce lacing, lively carbonation.   Soft malt nose, soft hop presense as well.   Subtle rind in there too.   Hop sided on the tongue, a little bright but not astingent.   Malts are soft but pair well.   Lingering hop goodness.   Moderate to full body and mouthfeel.   This one was rather enjoyable.   Maltier and certainly hopper than your standard Bitter and/or ESB.   Works for me.

BuckeyeBoy (2837) - Boise, Idaho, USA - SEP 19, 2007
On tap at Georgetown Brewing Co. Pours out hazy amber topped with a off white head. A very nice hop and malt aroma. Great body and a little bitter on the end. I could drink this one all the time.

scrizzz (2223) - Bothell, Washington, USA - AUG 19, 2007
encouraging aroma that makes me excited about this beer. this page says esb and the commercial description says red. itís between both and thin either way. i like the light mahogany hue but felt let down.

illinismitty (2270) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - AUG 18, 2007
Draft at Bal Mar in Seattle. Pours copper red with an off white head. Floral hop aroma. Medium bodied with average carbonation. Bold and unique malt presence of caramel, grains, toasted malt, and biscuit. Fairly hoppy for an ESB , and could perhaps pass for an IPA. However, bitter finish is short lived- like an ESB.

Taster - Hop Scotch Spring Beer Festival Ė Seattle WA
A deep reddish color with a nice head. Liked the overall use of flavors with this beer. This was full of hops and sweet malts to balance the brew this was very easy to drink. I liked this beer.
