My favorite every day brew! Crisp, golden color with a mild aroma and just the right amount of hops.

roner77 (35) - Portland, Oregon, USA - APR 3, 2006
On tap@ Corbett Street Fish House, Portland OR. An elusive beer to pin down. Looks a light amber/gold color but has a rather round and full body. A lighter grapefruit hopping. The finish is slight bitters with an herbal taste. I could drink many of these.

beerinmarch (2830) - Washington, USA - MAR 6, 2005
On tap at the Rose and Raindrop. Pours a lightly cloudy orange/golden with a small white head. Crisp citrus hops are dominant in the aroma. Very well balanced with fruity light malts and a crisp hop finish make for a nice sunny day brew.

troopie (2292) - Munchen an der Willamette, Oregon, USA - APR 21, 2007
Called Terminal Gravity Golden on the menu. Poured gold with a white persistent head. Citrusy aroma that grew stronger as the beer warmed. Hoppy flavour with a lightly bitterish finish.

spikester (602) - Salem, Oregon, USA - MAY 18, 2008
UPDATED: JUN 11, 2008 Pours cloudy amber with a modest white head. Aroma is floral, herbal. Taste is slightly bitter grapefruit with a rich malt side as well. The bitterness is somewhat astringent and lingers a long time. Excellent ESB, I must have more!

poisoneddwarf (1616) - 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.

Strykzone (4475) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - FEB 1, 2013
12 ounce bottle from Hayduke. This is cloudy golden with a nice off white head. The first thing I smell is pepper but it is light in the flavor. I taste grain and soft yeast. Mild bitterness tells me there some hops to be found. There is a sourness underneath. Mid glass I begin to taste more pepper and it is what could be found in a farmhouse style and it could pass for a saison. This is unique and somewhat intetesting.

On tap at Portland pod restaurant. Nice golden body with medium head. Nose is of hops, citrus and spices. Taste is also hoppy with some spices and a bitter finish. Enjoyable.
