Clear gold, frothy white head. Aroma is grassy, herbal, floral. Taste is grainy, herbal hops. Very light and crisp. I wish it was hotter outside because this beer would be even better then.

A very cheeky fruit on the nose with some coconut water sweetness. Pretty mild from all angles. An excellent daytime beer for out in the sun. Not too dry, not too sweet, moreish and quaffable. The caramel malt is definitely my favourite part of this.

Golden orange in color.. Aroma is caramel malts, hint of citrus hops... Flavor is crisp, slightly water... Herbal hop notes... Palate not especially bitter... Decent, nothing special...

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Poured into a pint glass.
4.0 A: Clear light orange/dark yellow color. Two fingers of whippy/creamy head with good retention and a good amount of lacing..
3.0 S: Light on the nose. Not really much going on in the hop department, but there is a faint grassiness. No sign of citrus, which is strange for a cascade beer. Malts are light on aroma too, but stand out more than the hops. Caramel sweetness and graininess.
3.0 T: A mix of grainy and bready. A decently strong bitterness, but not too much hop flavor. Perhaps a touch of grassiness. Crystal malts and not much else.
3.0 M: Medium body. Could be creamier and a tad bit too much carbonation.
3.0 D: Iím simply not impressed by this beer. Weak on hops, weak on malts, no sophisticated flavor profile.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from a Portland buddy. Poured a pale yellow color with some orange notes. Nice big fluffy white head. Good lace and decent retention. Aroma was grassy malts and some bread with just a touch of hops. Flavors were almost pils like, lots of crisp malts, light hop with a dry smooth finish. Extremely drinkable and refreshing. Reminded me of the Terrapin Golden ale or a less hopped 420. Not bad.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from Total Wine at The Desert Rose. Burnished orange with a creamy, persisting collar. Grassy, tangerine skin aroma with balancing cashew malt...and some eye-watering CO2. Drying mouthfeel, soda fizz, ornate lace. Gentle soapy hop, impression of thistles, spruce, chewed pencil. Creamy underpinning malt with toasted white bread and nuts. Malt-inflected and toasty. Drinks like a grassy, hop-shy English GA- decent, but ordinary. Wanted more Cascade.

12 oz bottle. Grainy aroma. Light golden appearance. Interesting tastes in this one. Grainy and hoppy with an odd lingering and very dry bitter taste. Not the best in the deschutes lineup.

[2993-20100627] Tap. Not much aroma, a little papery and some graininess. Slightly hazy, light orange body with a medium-lasting creamy white head. Generic malty grain flavour with a little soapy aftertaste and bitter throughout. Medium body is rough. Unrefined, uninteresting.

2010-06-27. Crisp golden body with a small off-white head. Flavour is a bit odd, modest bitterness, bit grassy with odd grainy notes. Aroma is similar, with mild hops and an odd grassy character, mild overall. Average paalte. Okay, did not really work for me. On tap at Deschutes, Portland
