3.68/5 rDev -0.5%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5
A: Pours a golden, copper in color with a finger of thick, creamy white foam atop. A good amount of carbonation is present and there's plenty of lacing around the glass edge as you drink. Inviting and looks to be refreshing.
S: A good mixture of citrus, pine resin, honey and lightly toasted malts attack the nose. Seems to be fairly balanced, but slightly hop-forward, especially as it warms.
T: Much as the aroma led me to believe, this one is pretty well balanced, but slightly hop-forward. Zesty citrus blends with the lightly toasted malts before unveiling a more grainy, pine resin and barley backbone. Definitely has the flavor of a Deschutes brew, especially in the malts.
M: Definitely on the lighter side. Body feels pretty thin, almost watery. Although there was ample carbonation on the pour, it almost feels a bit flat as you get to the last of it. I could definitely use a bit more chewiness. The lightness does lend to its drinkability, however, I think this is the weak point of the brew.
O: Overall, I felt this beer to be pretty much as advertised: a great end-of-the-day summer brew that will satisfy your cravings for flavor but also be light enough to have a few. Not the most flavorful or complex offering from this brewery, but it fills a niche quite well. Cheers!
