COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
We love beer, and we love doing good things. The only thing better than either is both. So, for every bottle of this ESB (extremely satisfying beer) sold, 25 cents will be donated to PCC Farmland Trust to help preserve local farmland forever. Pretty cool, huh?

Ferris (5005) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 6, 2014
Draft - Light grains. Clear gold with a rich beige head. Bitter citrus and caramel. Bitterness is a bit high without the twiggy bitterness I expect.

mcberko (7243) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 1, 2014
On tap at St. Augustine’s, pours a hazy dull orange with a small off-white head. Aroma is subtle, with English hops and feint malt backing. Flavour is rather off-putting, with vegetal notes, English hops and metallic notes. Something seems wrong to here as it tastes pretty skunked. Not good.

maxwelldeux (3806) - Everett, Washington, USA - SEP 6, 2014
Draught in a flight at the brewpub. Pours a clear dark amber color with a small white head on there. Nose is slightly toasty, but not all that strong. Taste is moderately toasty and slightly bitter, but fairly unremarkable. OK.

Gerbeer (2003) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 24, 2014
On tap. Pours a dark copper with moderate head. light aromas of grass, toast, and caramel. Flavors are same with sweet malts up front and dry grassy hops to finish. Nothing special though.

Lagerboy (1334) - British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 7, 2014
Bomber. Clear medium copper, thicker beige foam lasts. Pleasant earthy, grassy caramel aroma. Too sweet, mostly malty caramel taste, some mild earthy herbalness, barely bitter. Average carbonation, medium bodied, lightly hopped. Nice enough ESB (Essentially Sweet Beer) LBW (Lagerboys Be Wary)

Crit (3394) - Surrey, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 16, 2014
Amber,lasting beige head.Intense bead.Bland vaguely sweet fore & mid,medium hop bitterness in finish. 1 dimensional,lacking in malt. One of my least favorite breweries ruining my favorite style. Thought I give the brewery another shot, but nothing has improved.

WheatKing (1306) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 22, 2014
Bomber. Pours amber, white head. Nose is grass, berry, caramel. Flavour has caramel, a bit nutty. Definitely PNW but more English than most ESBs up here.

fiulijn (15354) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 6, 2014
Draught at St. Augustine’s, Vancouver
Hazy amber color with nice creamy head, persistent and sticky. The aroma is a bit dusty. Caramel flavor, quite dry, and with a hint of burnt sugar; quite strong bitterness, a bit too ashy in the final.
Reasonably an ESB, not impressive though.

robforbes (2074) - Bremerton, Washington, USA - JUL 21, 2013
pours a clear amber with a small white head, sediment floating around, and great lacing. smell is of malt, peat moss, earth, and a touch of caramel. taste is thick, malt, a few hops, and caramel. ends balanced. good ESB.

after4ever (6265) - Brier, Washington, USA - DEC 20, 2012
22. Pours a hazy burnished dark amber with bright golden edges and a dense and sudsy light tan head. Lots of drippy lace. Big sweet caramel malt nose, just glowing with toasty residual sugars. Creamy medium body with lively carb. Toast, nuts, caramel, and a bit of molasses on the mid palate. Long toasty finish. This is actually pretty nice.
