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.

Hazy straw colour. Mainly a wonderbread aroma. Fairly light pale malt character with light bitterness and not much else. Ah, yes, summer is here.

Bottle. Hazy, light golden color with a white head. Light citrus hop aroma, backed by some light malt. Thin to medium body with fizzy/creamy carbonation. Flavor is mild malt with lemon citrus hop, and noble hop. Finish is dry and decently bitter. Leaves a spice tingle in the mouth.

5000 (6298) - 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.

riversideAK (5626) - Shoreline, Washington, USA - JUL 17, 2009
Lightly fruity hop aroma citrus, orange, and some softer apricot maybe. Light sweetness. Pours hazy golden yellow. Light malty sweetness up front and a soft fruity bitterness in the finish. Easy to drink, not interesting. Nothing really wrong with it either.

Skyview (5269) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - JUN 7, 2008
Received 12-oz bottle from Liquid Solutions.biz in Portland, Oregon. Pours a semi-clear golden yellow brew with an average sized white head that slowly dissipates to a fine film and ring. Aroma of golden grain malts, a touch of citrus zest, some light fruit and a touch of lemon. Taste is light to medium bodied, some carbonation with flavors of golden grain malt, a touch of lemon zest and some grassy hops. Finish has a mild white bread dough aftertaste with some remaining citrus zest that slowly disappears.

FROTHINGSLOSH (5077) - 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.
