On tap at Georgetown Brewing. Pours red-orange with foamy beige head. Citrus and pine in the aroma. Initial sharp hop taste fades quickly, leaving a faint earthy and malty taste. Creamy palate.

BückDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - OCT 8, 2009
Tap @ Crusty’s: Dark ruby ebony color, light head and nice lacing. Nose of light fruity hops and caramel malt. Flavor is balanced, spicy malt and lighter hops, a tangy finish and moderate body. Kinda in the middle bland.

Tap @ Kahootz: Amber color with a white ring head. It has sweet malty aromas full of nuts and toffee perhaps. The flavor is equally malty with some cardboard thrown in. It has a thin finish as well as a slightly bitter aftertaste. To me, it’s a pretty good example of an ESB.

ditmier (1508) - Boise, Idaho, USA - AUG 10, 2009
Tap @ BBF - Pours a ruddy orangewith a small off white head...aroma is toast and floral hops, with some sweet malt, light cereal graniness...flavour is similar, and this was billed as a pale red, which I definitley think is more applicable than an ESB...great caramel malt backbone to a nicely hopped up dry pale ale...very good stuff...

BlackDonald (1126) - Gulf Shores, Alabama, USA - AUG 9, 2009
Dark amber almost a burn auburn color with a light fizzy soda head. Toasted bread and light caramel notes round out the malt with some bitter citrus hops. Light and very sessionable.

snakeoilpete (324) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JAN 28, 2009
On tap at Georgetown Liquor Company. Clear red pour with a decent head. Strong hoppy, fruity aroma. I am amazed by the way this beer manages to pull off such a big hoppy taste without the usual strong bitterness of a good IPA- I could drink this all night. Really well balanced. The initial malty sweetness GRADUALLY fades into a bitter hoppy finish. This is the first NW beer I fell in love with after moving to Seattle.

Bradrcr (806) - Renton, Washington, USA - DEC 1, 2008
9/28/08 On draught at The Panther Room, Seattle, Wa. Aroma is grainy, malty, with some slightly biting caramel. Appearance is a hazy brown with a well maintained cream colored head. Flavor is malt dominant, grainy sweet, with low caramel and moderate noble bittering. Mouthfeel is medium bodied, slightly creamy with a moderate carb texture and clean finish. Overall, quite good, and very easy drinking for a red ale, which I normally see as harsh from most American brewers.

Draught @ Taphouse Grill, Seattle. Pours a reddish amber color with a small off-white head. Has a malty caramel hoppy aroma. Malty hoppy bitter flavor with hints of caramel. Long malty hoppy bitter finish with some hints of caramel. Leaving you with a long bitter finish.

On tap at the Porterhouse in Mt. Vernon, WA--Poured a sharp ruby-orange body with a medium-sized white head. Fruity, clean, malty crisp citrus body with a highly drinkable prickly finish.
