3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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 – 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.

Good stuff. Tastes a lot like an IPA, very earthy and hoppy. Got it on tap at a local italian place in Seattle.

Really sweet. I like it because it tastes like theres alot of ingredients put into it, but it can always use more hopps. Very drinkable.

On tap at The Red Door. This was another great beer from Georgetown. Fantastic deep red color with a good citrus floral hop aroma. Initial slight sweet malt taste with an amazing hop profile on the finish. A medium to full body; I drank a few, but this was already after about 6 pints of other NW micros so I was pretty full already. Overall, I was extremely pleased with this one.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft at the Dog and Pony. This is some tasty stuff--probably the most appealing and fully-realized brew yet from Georgetown. They’ve nailed the "flagship" (i.e., money-making) beer concept well with the Manny’s and the Roger’s. Now they can play around a little more. This stuff has a gorgeous ruby color and light, moussy, tannish head. Plenty of dark spicy hops in the nose and in the palate, but the body’s crisp and light and drinkable. Surprising that the alcohol’s as high as it is. Totally sessionable. Great stuff.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: NOV 12, 2006 On tap at the Dog and Pony in Renton. Not sure what style the brewer intended for this beer: ‘red ale’ isn’t particularly declarative. Given the grapefruit and pine in the aroma and taste I would be comfortable calling this an IPA, but the big malty presence leads in a little different direction. Whatever the style, this is a whopping good beer!
