Nice quaffer - no high octane hop hit but still great flavour for low abv - the Aussie goldens like Stone and Wood/Nail have such great hoppiness.

Growler, brought to Christmas dinner by my bro-in-law. Medium yellow, slightly hazy, generous head indicating growler freshness. Light biscuity malts and delicate floral hops, very refreshing and balanced. A terrific lower ABV brew.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draught at St. Augustineís, Vancouver
Cloudy deep blond color with compact head. Malt and fruity hops aroma, delicate, nice. Dry mouthfeel, not too weak, with toffee malt flavor, reasonable bitterness, and very nice soft hop resins, also some hop fruitiness.
At this gravity, a real pleasure; well brewed, balanced, fresh.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 12/20
From bottle. Fizzy, light golden in color. Aroma is light sweet malt and a hint of citrus hop. Taste is sweet honey, biscuit malt, and a little bit of grassy hop bitterness. Not too exciting, but a nice refreshing golden nonetheless.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Wasnít super excited about a milder ale from Deschutes, but the Bend has yet to let me down. 8 oz pour at Beer Revolution. Pale golden pour with a white head. Aroma is mild floral, lemon zest, pastry dough. Mild hoppy bitterness on the palate, very light malty softness. Light done right - an impeccable balance for a light fluffy blonde ale.

Golden, clear, nice solid creamy foam. Smells floral, some grain, hint of hay. Taste is a little bitter, a little corn, a bit of herbal hops. Light bodied with lower carb and a semi dry finish. Meh, needs a little more oomph if you ask me.

Bottle from Pizza Port Bottle Shop. Pours golden with a thin white head. Not a ton going on on the nose. thereís some kind of lemon thing on the tongue. Kind of watery in the finish. Thereís not a lot of carbonation here. Itís almost flat. Iím usually very impressed with Deschutes but Iím not feeling this one.

12oz brown bottle. Golden pour, creamy white cap, lots of soapy lacing. Nose has orange and peach. Taste has some malts, fruitiness, orange peel hops. Finishes with light bitterness and orange peel hops. Light bodied, lots of carbonation. A simple, drinkable lighter abv session brew, not bad.
