tectactoe (2343) - Michigan, USA - AUG 4, 2014
Bottle: Cloudy honey-amber color, white head fades quick to a lasting, soapy collar; light patches of lacing left behind. Aroma of toasted, whole grain crackers, moderate herbal hops, weeds, a touch of doughy malt, & a very timid citrus zest presence. Taste is a little thin; some watered down, herbal & lightly earthy hops. A touch of grain, some vague toasted maltiness, a pretty abrupt finish with not much lasting or lingering flavor. Mild citrus zest mid-palate with some warmth. A decent session ale but a little vapid; there are certainly better options available.

tmoreau (2578) - Lombard, Illinois, USA - AUG 3, 2014
12 oz. bottle poured to a festival sampler at a group tasting, showing a fairly clear, ambered gold color. with a decent, froth & bubbles head, and wavy cling to the lacing. The nose started with touches of yeasty stink, & grassy dankness, then uplifted a bit by light lemon & spice. The taste continued similarly, adding some mild wheat, but light body, low carbonation, and thin texture. Maybe handled badly, but just a passably sessionable hydrator.

dfearnley (1081) - Alberta, CANADA - JUL 16, 2014
Bottle to pint glass I was given a gift pack with "Beers of the World" and this was one of them. Not one of my first choices, but Deschutes usually provides a good experience. Aroma is light grapefruit, hay, cat piss, spruce, malty sweetness and a touch of skunk. Itís a clear, light amber with a creamy off white head that provides a moderate amount of lacing. Taste is very skunky, I may have gotten an off bottle, but it ends in a nice hoppy bitterness. Moving past the skunkiness, I get hay and a touch of apple. If I see this in the stores, Iíll try to pick up a bottle and rerate, but Iím not grabbing a six pack in case this is how itís supposed to be.

Experiment_Ale (1044) - Dallas, Texas, USA - JUL 12, 2014
At Bend Summer Festival with Taylor. Pours darker bronze with big creamy head. Aroma is piney resinous hops, smooth. Taste is sweeter piney hops, some bitterness lemon, drinkable.

foyle (254) - Wyoming, USA - JUN 29, 2014
Poured from 12 oz bottle into pint glass. Appearance: pours a 2" off white fluffy head which leaves some light lacing behind. Color is a hazy rich gold with abundant streaming carbonation. Aroma: Pine and citrus hops are quite present with a nice doughy malt behind them. Mouthfeel: light and fluffy with a somewhat wet finish. Flavor: lemon peel, some pine and grapefruit, an odd soapy flavor, in the background is some malty backbone of dinner rolls, with a hint of cinnamon and caramel. Overall: I am hoping this beer will grow on me. I generally enjoy golden and blond ales, but this seems a little strange to me thus far. It is not bad, neither is it great. I was expecting more as I have always been pleased with Deschutes products. The beer just seems to lack a proper balance and is more hop forward while lacking in the sweetness I am accustomed to in this style.
