Probably THE BEST strong ale I’ve ever had, and I’ve had many. If your a fan of Strong Ales this is a must! Full bodied with a very light fruity taste and a kick. Squizzle (306) - Ashland, Oregon, USA - OCT 30, 2013
This is a great strong ale. It’s flavor is complex but nor over the top. The price is right and the beer makes you happy. Top notch Southern Oregon brew.

Medium brown color. Small head. Aroma is malty, fruity and sweet. A medium to full bodied Strong Ale. Malts are fruity and sweet. Hops are grapefruity and citrusy. Smooth taste. Nicely balanced. Nice sweet finish. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is slightly sweet. Reid (2611) - Salem, Oregon, USA - AUG 4, 2013
22oz from Fred Meyer in S.Salem ( Commercial St. store).
Surprised to see this at Freddys hope this gives this small brewery a boost.
Certainty looks like an English style ale in my Imperial nonic glass..chesnut brown with a small creme coloured head. Attractive.
Smells of english hop,tobacco,toffee,light cocoa..very nice and very authentic.
Taste is the same as aroma with a bit of demerara sugar and hazelnut, lovely quite lovely.
Great palate to this one,low carbonation and smooth finish.
A very good English ESB really better than any i have tasted from American brewers

Love the way the English style hops come through with this attractively priced strong ale. Appreciate the alcohol restraint to a level of ’just’ 7.0 abv making the 22 oz bottle perfect for an enjoyable session of sipping. Not overly sweet as some strong ales can be. Excellent balance and a pleasant creamy mouthfeel. Need to try more offerings from this brewery!

On tap at the Horse Brass pub in Portland. Clear ruby red color with a thin, off-white head that left strong lacing. Lots of sweetness in the nose, like the belgian candi sugar. Tons of malt sweetness but with equal tons of hops to balance it out. It is not an IPA hoppiness (I wrote down American Strong Ale as my guess for it’s style). I really liked it and wished it was available here. doublebock (558) - California, USA - OCT 17, 2012
Cloudy copper color with thin white head. Hazelnut malty aroma. Crisp palate with flavors of toffee, butter, and roasted malt. douglas88 (9573) - Portland, Oregon, USA - OCT 16, 2013
On tap at the Green Dragon. Pours a cloudy toffee color with a medium beige head. A sweet nose of caramel and fruit. The flavor is well done: toffee, chestnuts, very dusty, light fruity hops. Smooth, yeasty. Good. Volgon (2763) - Manchester, New Hampshire, USA - AUG 3, 2004
RBSG 2004, on tap: Clear orange with a frothy head. Citrus (orange) bubble-gum and plums in the aroma, starts and ends lightly sweet. Full boded, chewy, with lively carbonation. Ends with a long sweet aftertaste.
