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.

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.

bitbucket (2159) - Kirkland, Washington, USA - NOV 11, 2006
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!

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.

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.

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.

BuckeyeBoy (2854) - 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.

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...

5000 (6298) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - NOV 9, 2007
Draught @ Collin’s 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.
