Good beer for the summer. Overall pretty mild though and rather boring. Has a light body.

Light floral hop aromas with lemon. Very good light beer. Quenching and a bit of a bite. A mild.

Best by date September 2006, Sampled June 2006
Pours with a lightly hazy, copper tinged gold color and is topped by a frothy, initially three-finger thick, pale tan colored head. The aroma is initially a mix of sweet honey-like malt notes and grassy / herbal hop notes. As I nose around some more in the aroma I get notes of soft citrus (almost like a sweet lemon), thin beery notes that I associate with pale lagers, and a sort of flower nectar type thing that has a bit of sharpness to it.
Quite light on the palate, and pretty dry as well. This has a lightly spicy, yet herbal hoppiness to it that is the dominant flavor. The malt character is quite thin, and actually does not do a very good job of balancing the hop notes. Finishes with a biting bitterness. Overall this just seems out of whack; the hop notes are jarring, astringent and too much for the malt notes to handle. Definitely the worst beer from this brewery that I have had, but it is still drinkable and has no real flaws (other than being out of balance).

An average beer by Deschutes. Pours a slightly cloudy light golden hue with lacing present. Smells mostly of summer fruits like apricot and peach. Taste is mostly peach, but other fruits can be detected like oranges. Nice little hoppy bite evens things out. Worth trying, this beer is good for mowing the lawn but if you don’t pick it up you’re really not missing much.

Pours golden w/ a shallow, creamy froth. Aromas of fresh hops and bscuits. Medium nectar w/ ample residual effers. Crisp, clean, hopy, slight fruit and malted biscuits. Citrus rind bittering. Finish is fresh w/ asprin. Overal: light palate, flavorful, a good session brew. I Liked it.

This is a fairly refreshing summer brew, but honestly not my style. It just seems boring. Really nothing about it stands out except that it doesn’t stand out.

Pours a gold color with a slight haze (poured the sediment). Nice initial head that faded to a film quickly. Light carbonation. Very light lacing. Light noble, grassy hop aroma. Hops come through in the flavor with just a tad bit of residual malt sweetness. Light, smooth and easy to drink. Worth a try.

Light yellow golden with little head. Musky at first and then a grassy hop aroma. Sweet and moderately bitter, but short lived and finishes very smooth.

Pours a golden color with a nice whitehead. Great flavored beer with a little hoppy flavor also. Liked the underlying flavors at the end . This was a easy drinking beer for a hard days work. A nice summer beer and a good BBQ beer at that.

Blonde in the pour with a decent sized white head. Hops and malts are well balanced with hints of floral tones and citrus. A summer brew for certain, easy to drink in the heat of the day.
