Sample at the brewpub. This brew pours a clear copper color with a medium off-white head that recedes steadily. Strings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of malt, fruit and hops. Medium-bodied with flavors of earthy malt, caramel and grassy hops. The finish is earthy with a malt aftertaste. Decent all around.

From tap at the brewpub. Pours cloudy orange with a small white head. Aroma is mild fruity and toasted malty. Bitter, light toasted and medium dry. Bitter and mild fruity into the finish.

The Seattle RB does a more PNW take on Fire Chief, strong and hoppy. Gorgeous golden-amber with thick, rocky head. Rich hoppy nose (wood, grapefruit) with complex caramelly, earthy accents. Even bitterness - great balance - has enough bite to satisfy but the sweet earth and milk chocolate malt notes wipe the slate clean. Not "beer geek" burly but perilously drinkable.

Bartender told me this was an ESB, weighing in at around 7.5%. I did find this to be somewhat tasty. Great, in the aspect that it is wonderfully balanced. Some spicy cinnamon, ctirus hoppiness, caramel maltiness, but nice and fruity. A relaxing beer to end the night.
