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.

Oakes (14972) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 5, 2006
Hazy straw colour. Mainly a wonderbread aroma. Fairly light pale malt character with light bitterness and not much else. Ah, yes, summer is here.

mcberko (12998) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 2, 2016
12 oz. bottle, pours a cloudy orange with a small white head. Aroma brings out bread malt, some cardboard, and English hops. Flavour is along the same lines, with bready malt, tart citrus and some lightly stale cardboardy notes. Nothing special, but it works well enough.

5000 (6599) - 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.

FROTHINGSLOSH (6484) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 10, 2010
Shipped to me by my wife on a trip to Portland. Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured a hazy yellow-golden color with a medium sized soapy yellow-white head. The aroma was sweetish and tangy with notes of sugar, pear and apricot. The flavor was dryish and a bit malty with a dusty and chalky presence and hints of table sugar, pepper and leather. Medium length dry cardboard on the finish. Medium body. Eh.
