3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap. Pours with a slight haze coppery colour. Hppy citrus notes are met with matly backbone but this is rather light in aroma. Same sort of medium to light body on the palate but rather sweeter than expected has a real candy cane flavour to it. Interesting but far from their best brew.

Clear orange pour. Smells light yeast and fruits. Taste light yeast and citrus fruits. Good overall.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
(Bottle) Amber colour with frothy, beige head, leaving traces of lacing. Malty, fruity nose with treacle toffee, orange peel, marmalade, caramel, apricots and a touch of grapefruit. Malty, fruity taste with notes of orange peel, grapefruit, caramel, treacle toffee, passion-fruit, apricots and a balanced citric bitterness in the finish. Medium body, with a touch of caramel sweetness. Well balanced, fresh and tasty pale ale. Nice one.

Nice American hop aroma. Golden red ale, with a nice fruity / malty balance. Really disappointed that they only bring this one out seasonally. One of my favorites from Deschutes.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Translucent golden red. Meager head. Satisfying, but relatively mild aroma containing notes of malt, caramel, citrus, and hops. Mid bodied. Wonderful taste characteristics beginning with a smooth combination of malt and caramel, then finishing with these underlying flavours supplemented with citrus and hops. Quite hoppy, yet as the description suggests, toned down with a fair amount of malt. Nice.

Decent American pale ale. Get the caramel and some of that red amber lager flavors. Almost a cross style between the styles.

Light amber with a frothy white head that slowly diffuses out of the beer. Aroma of pine. Taste is bitter pine with a lemon finish and bitter overall taste and a creamy texture.
