fiulijn (19634) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 19, 2016
Draught at Alibi Room, Vancouver
Hazy amber color. A bit bready and cereally, good job with the malts, and the resiny hops are not bad too. Delicate and balanced. Not an ESB, but still a very good beer. A lot of character.

mcberko (15010) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 11, 2016
On tap at the Alibi Room, pours a cloudy orange with a small white head. Aroma brings out subtle notes of bready malt and English hops. Flavour is smooth, with loads of crusty rye bread and gentle English hopping. Really nicely constructed for the style. Very drinkable.

brokensail (16111) - Dublin, California, USA - JUN 29, 2015
On tap @ Breakside. Nice orange/amber pour with a white head. Theres kind of an overwhelming estery quality to this. Big time apple, pear, and golden raisin. Theres some honey and crusty bread to it, too. Light bitterness of grassy hops and tea leaves. Same sweet fruit and malt flavors as I get on the nose. Maybe a bit of caramel as well.

On tap at the brewery. Pours a clear orange copper with small off white head leaving sticky lacing. The aroma is toasted grain and wet biscuit. Medium mouth, bready malt, light grain, good.

Draught at Breakside Restaurant & Pub Brewery. Sweet light caramel nose with a touch of pasture and manure. Hazy light copper. Night light hopping and moderate caramelly flavors. Thin-medium body. Thin but a pleasant West Coast sort of bitter.

At the Milwaukie taproom, a bit mild and a bit high in alcohol for what I think of as an ESB. Not much punch to this one.
