3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Near clear dark gold pour with a two finger, creamy white head that has great retention and leaves nice lacing. Aroma is soft fruity esters, light citrus, light mineral, caramel, buttered bread and a little toffee. Favor is mineral, sweet citrus, caramel, sweet fruity esters, light passion fruit and a hint of grapefruit to the finish. Light body, crisp to slightly chalky, medium, somewhat sharp carbonation. Tasty stuff, lots of depth in flavor for the ABV%, still suffers a bit from the buttery notes in many Golden Ales.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle at home. Amber pour. Fizzy carbonation. Aroma has grapefruit, apple, earth. Very light bodied, Savory, grainy malt underneath. Fruity hop profile with apricot and pine. Underlying yeasty notes, almost Belgian-ish. Super clean and crisp finish. Nothing to it, but I kind of like how it comes together.

Pours coppery orange with a small white head. Smells fruity, citrus, hints of caramel. Taste is bitter, citrusy, hints of pine. Medium-bodied with a wet texture and average mouth-carbonation, Deschutes River Ale finishes with a smooth, lingering bitterness.

1.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Bland. All I get is the bitterness. Just not enough body, even for a lighter, session beer like this.

Bottle. Orange tan color with dwindling head. Nice citrus hop aroma. Citrus hop notes throughout with crisp grains and smooth finish. Medium light bitterness, especially for a golden blonde ale. A very tasty summer beer.

This beer we rated like it was a Pilsner. Although it wasn't a beer we would go out of our way to purchase it.
