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.

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 it’s decent alcohol content. I enjoyed it - but wouldn’t have placed it in the ESB category on my own.

mcberko (13523) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 8, 2015
On tap at Georgetown, pours a clear amber with a small white head. Aroma is lightly floral and fruity, with subdued hops. Flavour is pleasant, with floral hops, red fruits and dry caramel. Not the most intriguing beer, but it’s well-made. Decent.

WABeerFiend (383) - - JAN 16, 2015
Draught at Runway Cafe in Georgetown on 06.16.14. A: Mostly opaque amber/red. See through on the sides. 1/2 finger head that stayed. S: Sweet bready malt. Flower also. T: Caramel and sweet bready malt are dominant. Flower is subtle. M: Crisp. Very bubbly, maybe too much so. O: This was very carbonated, but that made it easier to drink than other ambers. There are better amber ales, but this one is good.

beastiefan2k (3388) - Emerald City (formely NYC & KS), Washington, USA - JAN 2, 2015
Draft at Ballard Beer Company. Dark red color with a big hop head and lots of lacing. Hoppy and vegetal hops circa 2005. An interfering yeast fruit. Unfortunate caramel and sweetness in the beer as well. A red that should have been made better 5 years ago.

Average red styled brew with a touch more on the hoppy side to keep it tasty enough.

maxwelldeux (4325) - Snohomish, Washington, USA - JUL 13, 2014
Draught at The Keg in Lynnwood. Pours a hazy reddish dark amber color with a moderate brown head on there. Nose is malt-forward, with some caramel and breadiness in there. Taste is a bit toasty, yet manages to be quite crisp and pleasant. Not bad at all.
