Hmm, pale ale? When it’s so dark, syrupy and malty? Not enough hops for the style, I think; but that’s not to say it’s a bad beer. But, maybe a bit more fuggles, a bit less malt to make it a pale ale. Or more malt, more body and call it a bitter. It’s neither here nor there, really.

A great beer! You can NEVER go wrong with Deschutes! Comes on soft and flavorful and ends the same way. What more could you ask for?

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle consumed during Hopkins Raspberry Days. Color is a deeper hue than expected. Almost copper. Aroma leans heavy on hops...maybe slightly floral. Taste is also hop centric. Slight bitterness. Malt makes its presence known towards the middle and end. Not a bad option as pale ales go.
