Bottle (apparently very fresh). Pours with a smallish white head over a clear golden body. Aroma is malty and bready (reminds me of walking into Stones brewery), with a decently nice hop presence in the back ground with mainly grass and mango aromas. Honey and biscuit as well. Taste is mango, herbal and grassy hops up front, followed by honey biscuit and bready aftertaste with notes of straw. Exceptionally nice hop profile and presence for a bitter. Solid sweetness as well. Light bubbles, dry. Excellent summer beer. Very good, fresh sample, I like it!

Nice mainstream standard summer ale with a touch of honey character. Did I mention the honey character? Yeah. Honey character.

Pours amber with a fine white foam head. Aroma is relatively weak, but is a little hoppy and floral. Flavor is a little citrus (sweet grapefruit), with a bit of hoppy bitterness. It is also very creamy, but unfortunately, a bit watery. A pretty good summer beer.

On cask at the brewery 6/26/09. Hazzy yellow with a bubbly head that fades fast. Aroma dominated by honey and vanilla. Very light with some sweetness and only a touch of bitterness on the finish.

Pours a golden straw with a head that quickly dissipates. Aromas of spicy and citrus hops, yeast and a hint of caramel. Good flavor for summer, with a citrus taste, complemented by caramel, fading out into a lingering spicy bitter taste.

Just not a fan of this. Bright gold body with a decent ivory head. Citrus, lemongrass, and an almost wheat quality. I guess it wouldnt be a horrible choice if I was mowing the grass but I was sittin on my couch in my air conditioned living room watching tv. Pass.

From a 12oz bottle comes a beautiful light golden amber brew with a frothy thick white head. The aroma is of vanilla, hops, and brown sugar. It goes down lightly sweet medium-bodied with medium carbonation and a very pleasant mouth feel. There is a light satisfying bitterness that hovers around the edges and ushers in the hops, smooth. I only wish the floral notes had lingered on longer. The mild bitterness finishes off a most satisfying beer. Cheers to these fine beer makers!

darbish (115) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JUN 16, 2009
smells watery and malty, very sweet aroma. very pale, to the point i dont think it looks very appetizing, and looks a little fizzy. taste has a strong initial hop flavor that wears off quickly and degenerates into a strange, watery taste that is reminiscent of yeasty bread. dries out my mouth a little, and is pretty sudsy. There are better bitters out there and Im a little disappointed in Deschutes with this one.
