Hazy amber beer. Softish dry palate. Malty and a little spicy. A touch of banana. Unfortunately it doesn’t hang together particularly well. The different elements jar and don’t blend.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draught at St. Augustine’s, Vancouver
Hazy light amber color with creamy head. The aroma is nice, light lemony hops. Dry mouthfeel, with quite good malt and toffee flavor, lightly crispy too, and bold bitterness, ending with a touch of citrus fruits and hop resins.
Not spectacular, but quite good.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from GBBF 08. I’ve always thought that Deschutes were under-rated and a little over looked. It’s a little hazy straw coloured with a thickish ivory head. Smells like a sweaty sox hop UK golden ale. You know what? It’s a bit like a souped up Woodforde’s Wherry. Crazy but it does. A little stronger, a little less malty and yeasty, but the hops are very reminiscent of Wherry. It’s great. I’m sat here in Ashford, drinking beer from Oregon. Does life get much better?
