Troobie99 (60) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JUN 7, 2002
Deschutes Brewery has taken the NW by storm--their Mirror Pond, Obsidian Stout, and Black Butte Porter are all top-ten selling micros in Oregon. You know what? This is their best beer. A couple years ago they switched to ESB, a bigger, less-balanced version. Bachelor Bitter is a spot-on classic best bitter, a perfect marriage of hops and malt that you could drink for four hours, take a break in your conversation, and then say, ’man, this is a TASTY beer.’

4 oz sampler at the brewery. A: Cloudy pure brown with an off-white head. N: Biscuit, pine, coriander, straw and hay, minerality, touch of honey. Brown sugar, toasted bread, and earth. T: Decently bitter, moderately sweet. M: Medium body, soft carbonation, no alcohol. O: Classic Bitter. Pity this one was discontinued outside the brewpub, as I’d like to have this more often.
