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. pinkzambia (1933) - Boise, Idaho, USA - AUG 26, 2009
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...

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.

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. anders37 (26657) - Malmö, SWEDEN - SEP 3, 2008
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. 19Ei8hty (1166) - Washington, USA - SEP 1, 2008
