3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
[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

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Nothing special about this beer but itís still strong for a blonde ale which can lend itself to being bland. Not that this beer wasnít bland, it just was better than most of the blondes/goldens Iíve had.
Not a ton of aroma, or flavor really but its good. some caramel, some hops (by a blonde standard).

Bottle. Deep golden with an average white head. Grainy aroma with vegetal nuances. Flavour is pretty bland-- pale grains with some capsicum in the finish. Just okay for me..

12 oz bottle from Fred Meyer - golden, clear, white foam, light sweetness, lightly bitter, light body, slick feel, soft carbonation. This beer has a faint aroma that is slightly unpleasant at first, but mellows out after a few sips. Tastes good, but not too exciting. Good summer beer.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
(bottle - 12 oz) Hazy gold color with a fizzy white head and nice lacing that lasts for a while. Light aroma, mainly with hints of flowery hops and some very light citrus. Rather herbal near the end. Dry and herbal hops at the beginning of the flavor with a sweet and lightly zesty middle. The hop bitterness comes through near the end and leaves a delicate peppery flavor on the palate. Finish has a light hint of caramel and citrus. Very dry.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Sample at the brewpub. This brew is a hazy dark yellow color with a thin white head that recedes quickly. Spotty lacing. Mild citrus, malt and hops in the nose. Light body with flavors of citrusy hops, malt and honey. The finish is caramel malt with an apricot and citrus aftertaste. Decent all around.
