Solid offering, on tap at a bar downtown Seattle. Nice, orangey-gold color, florally and earthy, finishes nice. Drank several pints of this and would do it again.

On tap at the brewery. Apparently this is the most popular of the Georgetown offerings. (note of trivia - Georgetown brewery is the second largest tap-only brewery in the U.S.) From the ratings, it appears that the recipe varies here and there. The version that I tried was nicely put-together, but very straightforward and not a lot of hops. It had a nice body to it, and drank very easily. Iím just disappointed with the lack of complexity to the aromas/flavors.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Seattle, Wa - on tap at Safeco Fieldhouse - Mariners-Twins Game. Medium copper pour, white head, thick lacing. Neutral aroma with a hint of fresh lake water. Flavor is slightly bland with some green tea notes, a light touch of mint, some ripening vegetable notes. Thick enough mouthfeel. Rolled the dice and missed somewhat on this one.

Pint @ George. I canít believe I havenít rated this yet! This and Mac and Jackís African Amber could be the unofficial beers of Seattle because at least one of them is in every damn bar. Refreshingly hoppy (love those Cascades!). Itís a shame it looks like pond water. Not a bad go-to.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft at Ruthís Chris steakhouse in Seattle, WA.
Pours a cloudy golden orange color with a two finger white head that quickly settles into a thin ring. Spotty lacing left behind.
Slightly floral aroma with delicate grassy hops countered by bread and pale malt notes. Subtle grassy pine character with faint citrus hop character followed by bread, biscuit and light fruit.
Medium bodied with a crisp hop presence up front that lingers over the sweeter notes and pale malt into a slightly dry finish. Floral and earthy hop character thatís not overly dry or bitter followed by citrus rind, bread, biscuit and graham cracker. A well balanced, refreshing beer that pretty sessionable.

On tap at Rooís in Long Beach, WA - Orangish yellow with a pillowy white head. Not overwhelming with the hops. Somewhat of a sweet aftertaste. Add some more hops, and this would be a very good IPA.

Love mannyís! Not much aroma and the head disappears quickly, but an excellent beer with a light banana ester and subtle finish.

Canít believe I donít have a rating in for this, one of the first good beers I remember having. Rosy hazy orange body, thick white head. Coppery malt and hop nose, sweet malt backbone with mild hops. Pretty good, and nice to have it around.

Tap. Pours an opaque golden amber with lingering off-white head. Pretty good, I usually order this if itís available and nothing else looks interesting.
