Served from a bomber into a pilsener sampling glass. With a moderate pour I needed to back off a bit to avoid overfill, and ended up with a billowing, frothy and creamy 1.5 inch head, pale tan in color. The beer itself is a deep copper color with light carbonation.

I really dig the aroma of this beer- I have a rather poor nose, so anything that I can really SMELL is a good bonus- as long as I'm not just smelling hops and nothing else...Definitely some grassy and herbal hops on the nose, but you can still smell some caramelly malt. The flavor is rich, complex and malt forward (without neglecting the hops entirely). I perceive notes of caramel, toffee, dark bread, nuts, and dark fruit, with a nice but not overpowering background of leafy and herbal hop bitterness. Quite a clean finish despite the fruity notes, with just a tad of lingering coffee-like bitterness with a bit of dank herb. The body is medium with a lightly creamy mouth feel that invites more sips.

I was afraid that this might be a crazy hop bomb (Spokane's getting pretty close to Seattle), but this beer is true to its style, and lets the malt characters shine through without neglecting the hops. An excellent example of the ESB style.

22 ounce bottle into pint glass, no bottle dating. Pours lightly hazy deep ruby copper color with a 2 finger fairly dense light khaki head with great retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lasts. Spotty soapy lacing clings down the glass. Aromas of caramel, toast, toffee, biscuit, orange zest, lemon zest, pear, apple, floral, grass, light pine, herbal, and floral/yeast earthiness. Very nice aromas with good balance of hop, malt, and yeast ester notes; with good strength. Taste of caramel, toast, toffee, biscuit, orange peel, pear, apple, nuttiness, floral, grass, pine, herbal and floral/yeast earthiness. Moderate earthy herbal/pine bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of caramel, toast, biscuit, nuttiness, orange zest, pear, apple, floral, grass, herbal, light pepper, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Very nice balance and complexity of malt, hop, and yeast ester flavors; with nice robustness, malt/bitterness balance, and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a lightly creamy, smooth, and moderately crisp mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with only a slight warming present after the finish. Overall this is a very nice ESB style. All around good balance and robustness of malt, hop, and yeast ester flavors; and very smooth to drink. A very enjoyable offering.
