A pub favorite ~ Phil's Trail is brewed up for the summer months in celebration of great mountain biking in Central Oregon. This a light, mildly hoppy ale with a crisp finish. Crystal malt and an aromatic variety of hops provide that wonderful, balanced flavor.

"not bad. a little light for my taste, but that is made up for by the incredible freshness of the beer. quite satisfying. it has a lighter hop profile than mirror pond, but equally as good."

On tap at the Bend brew pub. I found this to have an odd fruit tone along with a dank, musty flavor. It’s clearly a pale ale, but it;s grass and hay instead of citrus and pine. Not even remotely what I expected, and although I have yet to ride Phil’s trails (perhaps this Summer), I would have thought he would expect more. I would not drink this one again and find this sub-par for Deschutes. Nothing more than Mirror Pond, if that.

BückDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - JUN 17, 2007
Tap @ Brewpub: Gold, nice head and lacing. Nose of husk and funky, musky malts. The flavor is musky, lightly bitter and grassy. The finish is thin, forgetful, light malt. Dry. Not as good as the Painted hills I had right before this one.

Amber-tangerine orange color w. faded head. Bubble gum and pleasant floral hop bouquet with a moderate sweet malt background. Malty, bubble-gummy flavor with some floral character.
