3.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Hoppy aroma, as expected with hints of tropical fruit and raisins. The appearance is rather amber like and not that pale, maybe red chair and pale ale is some kind of hybrid thing? The taste is a bit hoppy and some bitterness but the malt profile is rather present together with a (relatively) large portion of sweetness which I don’t want in a pale ale.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle from systembolaget. The nose is heavy in caramell and not so much hop aroma I prefer in a pale ale. There are though some hints of lemon drop and some grape. There is much caramell in the taste as well, a bit to much for my taste. There is also a nutty creamyness in the taste which is nice but it is to low in bitterness. There is some bitterness and some toastiness in the finsish, but the finish overall is pretty weak.
To much caramell and too little hops for my taste. Had it been presented as a brittish pale ale I might have rated it higher

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Copper coloured, slightly cloudy with a big creamy, white head that dissipates slowly leaving quite a bit of lacing. Well balanced aroma dominated by mango, passionfruit and grapefruit with quite a bit of sweet caramel. The taste, once again, well balanced, medium sweet and bitter and quite fruity. Medium carbonation with a very smooth mouthfeel. Perhaps a bit too restrained considering the ABV but still a great beer, though I can imagine a fresher and better stored bottle would be even better.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours hazy orange amber with a finger of off-white head. Aroma of resin, grapefruit, caramel, toffee, light bread. Taste is initial caramel and resin, nicely balanced, before a more resinous bitter finish. Body is light to medium with soft carbonation. I quite liked it.

@basunen: lite lätt doft. Smaken är ganska len med en liten humleton. Något söt annars inte mycket.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle from Brass Rail Deli. Pours red with a thin khaki head. Not much on the nose. Rather malty on the tongue. Finishes clean. Solid, drinkable. Even when they’re not hitting you over the head with flavor, Deschutes still makes a well-crafted beer.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Amber with white head. Piney notes with citrus, oranges and caramel. Taste is full of malty sweetness with citrusy bitterness that rounds out with maple sweet notes. Not very hoppy, but very pleasant.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Flaska från SB. Bärnstensfärgad, drar lite åt rött, klar, medelhögt ljust skum. Först lite orena unkna jästiga dofter som gradvis försvinner, inte jättestor humledoft men lite blommor och citrus. Fin maltkropp, len, mjuk och krämig i munnen. Vinner på att få lite högre temp än kylskåpets. Karamell, kaksmulor, brända mandlar, röda vingummin, nektarin, röd grape. Söt smaker men relativt torr. Måttlig beska. Snygg maltprofil och lite trött humle.
