Golden-hued and medium-bodied, Nestucca ESB features a floral, herbal aroma character balanced with a toffee-like toasted malt flavor. A tangerine-and-pineapple-like fruitiness merges with caramel flavors and a clean, hoppy finish to make this beer both refreshing and full of character. Dry hopped with Goldings hops for an even bigger fresh hop aroma!!

Draft pour pint at The Collective, as part of my "pulling beers out of RB hiatus" series. 3 years of no love! Don’t worry, I got this. Penny copper pour with a foam ring head. This is quite an inspiring ESB. For a style that I avoid, this was exceptional. Smooth, caramel flavor. Light. Refreshing. Semi sweet. Easy drinking. It is what I feel it should be. Very good.

ericdevin (988) - Eugene, Oregon, USA - MAR 1, 2013
Draft at 16 Tons Taphouse, Eugene. Pours medium tan, little head. Slightly sweet and even more slightly spicy aroma. Body is rich and slightly syrupy, almosy creamy. Finish starts with slight bitterness and then opens up to be malty and a little sweet. Maybe not try enough to be totally true to style, but really delicious, a lovely session beer.

Alphadelic (2171) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JAN 11, 2013
One of the most accurate ESBs I have ever had. A hint of pennies, chocolate, but and caramel. A little nettle on the nose too. Lots of sweetness and a very, very mild bitterness. Smooth as hell.

On draught at Pelican Pub. Admittedly not my favorite style of beer, but overall not too bitter.

crackedmachine (479) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JUN 15, 2012
Pours clear copper with medium, light-tan head. Aroma is floral, spicy, some caramel. Flavor is mild and balanced. Malty, light-moderate sweetness, with caramel, hints of fruit, and a lightly crisp finish, contrasting with a lingering malt flavor. As ESBs go, this is a pleasant example.
