BBD 7/26/13. Poured from the bottle to a "Sam Adams Boston Lager Pint Glass"

A - nice med tan color w/ a foamy head that stayed to the finish

S - soft, mild yeast aroma

T - like a cream ale or a Boddington's. I taste no bitterness or hops. Nothing wrong with that, just not what I expected.

M - full, smooth, creamy, lingering, very low carb

O - The more I drink it, the more I like it. Maybe it tastes this way because it is so close to the BBD or maybe the friend who gave it to me let it get hot or something. A fine pub ale.

Pours a copper color body with a one finger bubbly and frothy white head. Looks nice.

Aroma smells of citrus zest, lemon, grass, slight bready notes, and some pine. Smells great.

Grassy, lemon flavor backed by decent bitterness on the tongue. Bready, piney, and earthy. Leaves a dry bready and piney aftertaste. A little bit overwhelming for the bitterness over the malty side.

Medium body, nice carbonation, feels just right.

Nice pale ale from Deschutes.
