COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Hits the tasty sweet-spot between Ambers and Pale Ales. Green Lakes is brewed in our organically certified brewhouse with 100% organic malts, and hops specially cultivated to preserve spawning streams. Altruism has never gone down so easy.

"ok...this is one of THE best organic ales i’ve had. period. it is as good or maybe even better than cinder cone. what a clean, refreshingly balanced beer. ambers lack the punch or complexity to get a super high score, but this is one of the best. Another great job by Deschutes."

Pretty much the same as the Non-Organic Pub Exclusive I tried prior to it so the review it essentially the same. A nice balanced amber, great for hogging a sesh.

Nice and mild amber ale, somewhat subdued from the norm for the NW. Amber in color with small airy head, malty, nutty, some hop bitterness.

A- Pours a hazy orange hue with little to no head. S- Very hop forward, pine with a spicy character. T- Very herbal, grainy, with a sustained wave of piney hops on the back end. M- Medium/low carbonation, medium bodied. D- This is a fairly tasty brew and I enjoyed it more than my score shows.

Best by 28AUG12 Pours rusty amber with a solid sheet of creamy foam. Smells of english malts and some tea as well as just the slightest hint of caramel and herbal hops. Flavor is a nice malty amber with just enough astringency and herbal hops to keep me interested. Medium on full bodied with moderate carb and an off wet finish. Nice beer.

Pretty good as far as ambers go. Malty backbone, very nice balanced. Sweet caramel and grassy hops.

ajnepple (2293) - Conifer, Colorado, USA - MAR 20, 2013
12 oz bottle. Pours brown and slightly hazy with a big rocky head and nice sticky lacing. Aroma is caramel malts, herbal hops and spices. Light to medium body with a slick feel. Flavor is crisp and clean with light caramel and light hops. A bit bland. Not too bad, just not for me.

Tasted in 2010 (backlog). Amber in color with a small off-white head. Aroma is of grass and grain. Taste is grassy with some caramel.
