Sample at the brewery tap room. This brew is a dark reddish-amber color with a medium off-white head that diminishes steadily to a film. Partial rings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of malt, caramel and hops. Light to medium body with a sweet caramel malt character and notes of ripe fruit and mild hops. The finish is lightly bitter with a short citrusy hops aftertaste. Decent overall. shadey (2171) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - AUG 20, 2012
On draft at the brewery. I suppose it is the English ale years that pushes this beer into the ESB category. Either way, it is delicious. A spicy red ale that is easy to drink, considering it’s decent alcohol content. I enjoyed it - but wouldn’t have placed it in the ESB category on my own. saxo (19569) - Højbjerg, Aarhus, DENMARK - JUL 28, 2012

On tap @ Georgetown Liquor Company. Pours dark amber with thin lingering head. Aroma is caramel and roasted malts with just a hint of hops. Taste is thick caramel malts with nice floral hops on the finish. A solid red and a local favorite. cstuartj (1020) - Washington, USA - APR 13, 2012
Clean golden brown, nice thick head. Malty crisp nose. Very nice clean bitter attack, malty, earthy. Lingering finish. Yumm.

UPDATED: MAY 10, 2015 Tap at Fiddlers 2/4/10
Really nice rich red-brown pour, lovely grapefruit hop aroma with plenty of caramel wrapped around the citrus. Quite a bit stronger than your usual red ale, this one is definitely a PacNW red, pushing IPA territory rather than coming anywhere near British ESB authenticity. And that turns out to be largely a good thing; the beer is lovely and dry, not overwhelmingly bitter but certainly would not be boring even to a diehard hophead. A pleasant surprise. 7/4/7/4/14=3.6
Growler revisit 5/9/15 Description above pretty much stands. I wouldn’t call it dry as I did above, but it was indeed a pleasant surprise given my priors on PacNW red ales and on Georgetown brewing. I’d drop it to about 7/3/7/3/14=3.4 and I’ll update accordingly.
