3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: AUG 2, 2014 Nice amber color with a one inch off-white head. Big piney hop aroma. Fair amount of lacings. Taste is pinapple-grapfruit hops with some sweet malts. The hops dominate but mellows as the glass is drained. Overall a nice summer brew. Sessionable.

mildly hoppy smell with some light sweetness. Golden color. Initial taste is hops then tamed with malt. It starts stong and then really mellows out towards the aftertaste.

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Belgian yeasty smell, earthy vegetable + grass. Slight perfumey citrus hops aroma. Minor spice notes (coriander, cinnamon, anise).
Bland flavor of lemon, mild malts.
Mediocre hops in the finish.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
A hazy pale golden beer tih a thin beige head. The aroma is sweet malty with light notes of citrus, while the flavor is sweet malty with strong notes of citrus, leading to a dry wheaty finish. The body is thin.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Decent and unoffensive, still not the greatest beer to ever get packaged from Deschutes. There is just not a whole lot of flavor here, a bit of watered down grainy maltiness and some fresh floral hop flavors, but that is it, the finish drop right off into nothing.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
This golden ale poured with a decent beige head. There is a lot of hop in the flavor, which is otherwise unremarkable. There is a carbonated mouthfeel and a bitter finish.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12 oz. bottle pours a light amber fluid. A thin head fades quickly to a sheen at the edge of the glass. Has a faint aroma of perfumy hops. Taste is a mild, non offensive grainy, yeasty malt flavor with a mild, fresh hops flavor to balance.
Refreshing and easy drinking, this would be good medicine for those with heavy exposure to Macro piss waters.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a clear golden color with a finger of head that sticks around. Little lacing. Very little smells. A hint of hops, maybe some lemon or orange. Taste is very bland. A tiny bit of hops, slight honey but very watery with some carbonation. This is extremely drinkable and is very refreshing for a thirst or hot day but is not a conversation piece. Good for what it supposed to be.

2.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Surprised to see how highly rated this beer is. Maybe I just had a bad bottle, but I felt like this could have been Perrier water with some hop notes. I couldn’t detect much of a malt mouth feel at all, and it had a very heavy carbonation that gave off the sparkling water mouthfeel. Blah blah blah.

On tap at Hamiltons. Pours with an orange-amber body topped by a thin to medium thick, white head with a good amount of lacing left behind. It’s slightly bitter, piney and peppery from the hops with a little malt sweetness showing through. Not a whole lot of flavor. Medium bodied and a touch dry.
