COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Terminal Gravity ESG is an American Golden Ale. Light and refreshing but also complex, with a crispness from flaked rye and a hint of peat smoke. Subtle hops from the Rhine and Yakima river valleys do not overwhelm.

poisoneddwarf (1955) - Rathdrum, Idaho, USA - JUL 12, 2010
UPDATED: JUL 24, 2010 12 oz bottle into English pint. Aroma is wort, bread, but very subdued. Pours a slightly hazy lemonade color with a medium dissapearing head. Taste is bananas, pepper, citrus. Taste is salty then sweet; no bitterness. Highly carbonated with a full body. Creamy mouthfeel. Doesnít taste like any ESB Iíve ever had--itís much better. The banana esters make it reminiscent of a hefeweizen and the pepper notes remind me of a saison. Interesting and really tasty. Would be a perfect session brew.

5000 (6300) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - DEC 16, 2009
Bottle:   Light golden, vibrant, sediment floats about, thin sudsy white head, falls quickly, little lacing.   Straw aroma on the nose, very slight skunk or wet cardboard.   Some resemblance to pink peppercorns as well.   Grassy on the tongue, soft sweetness, a little peppery.   Average body and mouthfeel.   A little musty on the finish, peppery, malty but on the cereal side.   Not. Bad, but I often think of goldens being a bit brighter versus being on the malty side.   Enjyable nonetheless.

Bottle. Pours a golden color with a little white head. Aroma was corn, grains, and malts. Flavor was metallic, yeast, and some hops. Thin to medium body. Decent beer.

Birdiebeagle (958) - Perkasie, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 22, 2009
Bottle from Scrizz, thanks, buddy. Pours a hazy golden with a thin white head. The head leaves quickly. Produces spotty lacing at best. Aroma is lightly spiced, fruit, and grain. Has a light carbonation. The flavor is malty with a dullness to it. Not awful but not great. Has a thicker than water texture. A light to medium body. The finish is okay and the aftertaste is lacking. This isnít bad it is just very average.

coyotehunter (681) - , Michigan, USA - SEP 8, 2009
Bottle thanks to Scrizz! Pours a golden yellow with a marginal head. Smell is mostly grain, some citrus and and maybe some corn. Taste is reasonable...aforementioned notes with a light malt and some sugar and a hint of spice. Finish is a bit smooth and not real bitey. Ok beer.

gracefullypunk (667) - Portland, Oregon, USA - AUG 24, 2009
Pours a slightly hazy yellow gold with a thin creamy off white head. Faint aroma of pepper, citrus and sugar. Taste is citrus, caramel and pepper, but not enough of a bitter finish for a supposed bitter.

carruthm (1401) - Seattle, Washington, USA - AUG 21, 2009
Bottle. Pours a clear light gold color with a thin head covering. Aroma is cider-y with some faint bitter hops and some spiced alcohol. Taste is a letdown, sort of a flat, cider bitter.
