COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Terminal Gravity ESG is an American Golden Ale. Light and refreshing but also complex, with a crispness from flaked rye and a hint of peat smoke. Subtle hops from the Rhine and Yakima river valleys do not overwhelm.

My favorite every day brew! Crisp, golden color with a mild aroma and just the right amount of hops.

On tap@ Corbett Street Fish House, Portland OR. An elusive beer to pin down. Looks a light amber/gold color but has a rather round and full body. A lighter grapefruit hopping. The finish is slight bitters with an herbal taste. I could drink many of these.

On tap at the Rose and Raindrop. Pours a lightly cloudy orange/golden with a small white head. Crisp citrus hops are dominant in the aroma. Very well balanced with fruity light malts and a crisp hop finish make for a nice sunny day brew.

Called Terminal Gravity Golden on the menu. Poured gold with a white persistent head. Citrusy aroma that grew stronger as the beer warmed. Hoppy flavour with a lightly bitterish finish.

spikester (606) - Salem, Oregon, USA - MAY 18, 2008
UPDATED: JUN 11, 2008 Pours cloudy amber with a modest white head. Aroma is floral, herbal. Taste is slightly bitter grapefruit with a rich malt side as well. The bitterness is somewhat astringent and lingers a long time. Excellent ESB, I must have more!

poisoneddwarf (2511) - Coeur d’ Alene, Idaho, USA - JUL 12, 2010
UPDATED: JUL 24, 2010 12 oz bottle into English pint. Aroma is wort, bread, but very subdued. Pours a slightly hazy lemonade color with a medium dissapearing head. Taste is bananas, pepper, citrus. Taste is salty then sweet; no bitterness. Highly carbonated with a full body. Creamy mouthfeel. Doesn’t taste like any ESB I’ve ever had--it’s much better. The banana esters make it reminiscent of a hefeweizen and the pepper notes remind me of a saison. Interesting and really tasty. Would be a perfect session brew.

Strykzone (7356) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - FEB 1, 2013
12 ounce bottle from Hayduke. This is cloudy golden with a nice off white head. The first thing I smell is pepper but it is light in the flavor. I taste grain and soft yeast. Mild bitterness tells me there some hops to be found. There is a sourness underneath. Mid glass I begin to taste more pepper and it is what could be found in a farmhouse style and it could pass for a saison. This is unique and somewhat intetesting.
