Not much aroma, just a slight hint of hop flower. Loses some points on appearance from clarity and lack of head. Pretty mild flavor but a good amount of bitterness (just right for an ESB.) Pretty good mouthfeel as well. This was definitely my favorite overall Deschutes brew. Just with it had more aroma.

DSG (8448) - Tel Aviv, - MAR 16, 2015
[2/27/15] Draught at Deschutes Brewery & Public House in Portland. Amber-colored. Aroma of butter, caramel and toffee. Sweetish flavor, buttery, with caramel, toffee, light fruitiness and a bitterish finish. Medium-bodied.

This was poured into a pint glass. The appearance was a hazy burnt orange to brown color with a one finger white foamy head that dissipated within about a minute leaving some light lacing here and there and ends up sliding for the most part. The smell had a decent amount of sweet malts, slight nuts over top of the hops. The taste was mainly the same with a slight quick malty aftertaste leading to a dry sweet finish. On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a fairly decent sessionability about it. Overall, I would say that this was a decent ESB I could have again. Iíd like to have again and wouldnít mind having with some fish ní chips.

"bachelor bitter is now the tap, and bacheloe esb is the bottle, so this review is for tap only...a little lighter and smoother than in the bottle, so a noch up there, but it loses a touch of itís complexity."

Strong caramel/crystal malt lends a sweetness that overpowers the English hops a bit too much. Other than that itís a pretty solid take on the style. Iíd love to try a version with the abv dialed down to a more style appropriate level.

vyvvy (4661) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - JUN 22, 2014
On tap at their Downtown Portland location - Pours copper / orange with an off-white head. The aroma has bready English malt and light earth - very clean. It has a medium smooth body thatís almost creamy and has soft carbonation. The flavor has toastiness, nuts, bread, must and earthy English yeast. The finish has phenolic spice and crackers. Good bitter.

When in Rome...er....Bend, Oregon, get rad with the locals. The local champ and for good reason, this capped off a goal of trying 200 beers in three months on a limited budget while vacationing there. Glad I did it with this. Hazy hazelnut rust with a small, lacing head. Crisp smell of roast malts and some spruce. Vanilla, chocolate, light hoppage, some citrus. Not too bitter and very creamy and smoove. I dig.

stevoj (2879) - Boise, Idaho, USA - MAY 19, 2014
Decent bitter from Deschutes, amber in color with small airy head. Heavy malt profile in aroma and taste, some mild, dry bitterness on the finish.

pdx77 (1483) - Oregon, USA - MAY 3, 2014
On draught at Deschutes Brewery & Public House, Portland. Caramel amber color. Aroma is semisweet caramel malt, grass, and a touch of citrus. Taste is caramel, malt, grain, grassy hops, and some citrus bitterness. Feels heavier that its ABV, but yet is very sessionable. Caramel finish.

MrChopin (3726) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - APR 25, 2014
hazy amber, thin white ring. Stale tea and caramel nose, bit of sugar. Front palate is orange candy and light crust, mid showing leaf and cardboard as the huge toasty finish builds until the end, light oxidation, definitely best part of the beer
