3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from Total Wine in Folsom, CA. Pours light amber with a slight white head. Aroma is a strange mix of toffee and floral. Med minus body. Flavor starts fruity, gets a little mixed hop, and then goes a little wheaty. The pleasures are too subtle for me.

Bottle at home. Pours an orangish yellow with one finger of lingering head. Aroma is malty with slight hoppiness. Flavor follows. Tastes somewhat watery. Drinkable beer.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
"A blonde/golden ale with a fresh northwest blast of hops in the nose. Cereal and light hops. A very nice, mellow fruity light ale - good with food or as a starter :)"

1.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
After hiking 7 miles I poured this bottle into a small hotel cup. Comes off as a dry slightly hoppy brew with little aroma, a lingering taste and light head. It does feature a beautiful amber color with a good head. Not bad but not great. Probably would not try it again.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Poured from bottle into a tulip glass. Amber color with small head. Pretty "meh" flavor to this beer. A little bit of citrus and hoppy flavor, but otherwise is very bland. Little bit of a disappointment compared to some of the other Deschutes beers Iíve had.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Didnít wow me. A light bodied ale. Pale yellow. Not a lot of flavor and a bit of tartness to it. OK.

12 oz bottle with a BB date of Sept. 2014. Purchased in Eugene and consumed on the banks of Oregonís McKenzie River.
Appearance: clear deep amber with a semi-durable, sudsy bone-colored head. Excellent lacing.
Aroma: herbal/floral hops with a good bit of biscuit malts.
Flavor: Low-medium hop intensity in this ale is about that of a typical Pilsner, but more bitterness in the aftertaste. Mild+ bitterness.
Feel: Lively medium carbonation. Near medium body.
O: well crafted but unexceptional.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Light amber pour with an off white head. Light malt/citrus aroma. Delicate hop flavor that quickly fades.. Pretty uninteresting session beer.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
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.
