riversideAK (6260) - Shoreline, Washington, USA - FEB 12, 2010
Lightly doughy malt, hints of floral hops. Light on the nose, not much going on really. Hazy golden pour, not much head. The flavor is also doughy, lightly sweet with a floral/peppery hop profile that is not too bitter but makes a little presence felt. Easy to drink, well made, but super unspectacular.

BrewDad (5328) - Olympia, Washington, USA - JAN 25, 2010
Aroma – Malty light with bitter hops very light aroma. Appearance – Amber in color, clear with a think head. Flavor – This did have a nice balance in the flavor. Good malt and hops. Palate – Smooth and easy drinking. Overall - This was a nice ESB easy drinking.

troopie (2324) - Munchen an der Willamette, Oregon, USA - JAN 11, 2010
Draught. Poured amber brown with medium white head. Ringed lacing. Mild spicy aroma. Balanced flavour, but leaning toward the sweet side. Speedy finish

Beardface (1517) - Eugene, Oregon, USA - DEC 16, 2009
Tap at the brewpub. Pours a light golden with a small, tight head and minimal lacing. Aroma is bread, floral and light lemon citrus hops. Flavor is lemon, honey, bread and a strange sour note. I think this is the only beer I’ve had from Double Mountain that I really didn’t enjoy at all.

bhensonb (15098) - Woodland, California, USA - DEC 11, 2009
Tap at the Lucky Lab Beer Hall. Pours medium amber with an off-white head. Sweet pale fruit aroma. Medium body. Mild carbonation. Flavor is lightly cooked dark fruit. Quite delicious. Sweet/bitter/fruity finish. Kind of fun.

3.4
BuckeyeBoy (7545) - Boise, Idaho, USA - AUG 2, 2009
On tap at Double Mountain Hood River. Pours out a hazy apple juice topped with a white head. Aroma was of malts and a dirty sock odder. I don’t think that is suck a good smell. Taste was OK though. A good rich bread malt along with some sweetness and as always for me I seem to pick up a little wood on the ESB’s for some odd reason.

2.6
spikester (606) - Salem, Oregon, USA - APR 9, 2009
Pours gold with a compact white head. Few lacings. Aroma is bready with some floral hops. Taste is bread, yeast, lemon, and bitter earthy hops. The overall effect was a sour lemon hoppy beer. Not much like any ESB I’ve had before. I did finish the glass but was tempted to have and IRA or Hop Lava about half way through. Maybe this was an old batch or I was served the wrong beer.

3.3
alexanderj (3605) - Branson, Missouri, USA - APR 5, 2009
On tap at Double Mountain in Hood River. Color was a murky, dark gold color. Aroma was light with bread, earth and apples. Flavor was of bread, fruit and spice. A bit dry and earthy in the finish. Drinkable beer.

3.6
JMFG (1587) - Florida, USA - MAR 6, 2009
On tap @ Apizza Scholls, while awaiting my bacon pizza. Hazy orange-brown color, thick pillow of stark white head. Mild grassy hop character, light biscuity malt notes. Mild overall, but serves its purpose.
