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.

"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 :)" MrWomey (39) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - SEP 10, 2014
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. Mittenator (1612) - Michigan, USA - SEP 1, 2014
Bottle thanks to Andrew. Clear gold with a beige head. Clean and smooth. No flavors dominate. BeerCoff4025 (31) - Iowa, USA - AUG 26, 2014
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 I’ve had.

Bottle. Didn’t wow me. A light bodied ale. Pale yellow. Not a lot of flavor and a bit of tartness to it. OK. chinchill (5171) - South Carolina, USA - AUG 22, 2014
12 oz bottle with a BB date of Sept. 2014. Purchased in Eugene and consumed on the banks of Oregon’s 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.

Light amber pour with an off white head. Light malt/citrus aroma. Delicate hop flavor that quickly fades.. Pretty uninteresting session beer. boozedude (2228) - Des Moines, Iowa, USA - AUG 5, 2014
Bottle shared with hakes drive on dek bar after 48 hour film festival... super fruity joy aroma..taste is tectactoe (3125) - Michigan, USA - AUG 4, 2014
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.
