Tap @ BBF - Pours a ruddy orangewith a small off white head...aroma is toast and floral hops, with some sweet malt, light cereal graniness...flavour is similar, and this was billed as a pale red, which I definitley think is more applicable than an ESB...great caramel malt backbone to a nicely hopped up dry pale ale...very good stuff...

BlackDonald (1126) - Gulf Shores, Alabama, USA - AUG 9, 2009
Dark amber almost a burn auburn color with a light fizzy soda head. Toasted bread and light caramel notes round out the malt with some bitter citrus hops. Light and very sessionable.

snakeoilpete (324) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JAN 28, 2009
On tap at Georgetown Liquor Company. Clear red pour with a decent head. Strong hoppy, fruity aroma. I am amazed by the way this beer manages to pull off such a big hoppy taste without the usual strong bitterness of a good IPA- I could drink this all night. Really well balanced. The initial malty sweetness GRADUALLY fades into a bitter hoppy finish. This is the first NW beer I fell in love with after moving to Seattle.

Bradrcr (806) - Renton, Washington, USA - DEC 1, 2008
9/28/08 On draught at The Panther Room, Seattle, Wa. Aroma is grainy, malty, with some slightly biting caramel. Appearance is a hazy brown with a well maintained cream colored head. Flavor is malt dominant, grainy sweet, with low caramel and moderate noble bittering. Mouthfeel is medium bodied, slightly creamy with a moderate carb texture and clean finish. Overall, quite good, and very easy drinking for a red ale, which I normally see as harsh from most American brewers.

carruthm (1401) - Seattle, Washington, USA - MAY 17, 2008
clear body, dark orangey/red hue. aroma and taste more like an amber ale. solid, but not what I’d expect from an ESB.

BillKismet (3412) - 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 (4710) - 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 hadn’t heard of Georgetown previously, this was a pleasant surprise.
