COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Dry & crisp, this beer was fermented with our House Yeast strain at 60 degrees and cold-cellared on dry hops for a month. Northern Brewery and Challenger hops balance the malt background, which is comprised of English Floor- Malted Two-Row Barley and a small percentage of Rye malt.

On tap at the brewpub A medium dark amber with a modest white head and very persistant sheeting lacing. A faint softly sweet flavor of light malts and slight spiciness. Mildly hopped it is fairly sweet throughout.

(Draft: Deschutes Brewery in Bend, OR) Expecting a modest spiciness in the nose, instead, itís sweet and caramely with a touch of orange citrus. The flavor isnít as sweet as the nose hinted at, but it is fairly caramely. Thereís a gentle spiciness, but the moderately bitter hops has enough presence to complement the effective contribution of the rye malt. Medium bodied, the sweetness sticks on the palate until the finish, where the hops lends some crispness. Golden in color with an off-white head that leaves behind quite a bit of patchy lacing. Enjoyable enough.

On Tap at Deschutes Brewery & Public House: This was pretty good. The brewmaster didnít have an exact style for this one. He said it came closest to a California Common or a specialty beer. The color is a murky, light copper with and off-white head and clingy lacing (like a friend you canít get rid of). I thought it was a well balanced beer with a cardboard aftertaste. It has a smooth and soft feel. Hopefully, Deschutes decided to bottle this one. I would go for it again.
