Deschutes Red Chair

Appearance: amber, very small head, and some lacing.

Smell: hops, floral fruits, and a slight flower sweetness.

Taste: very nice malts, good hops, and a faint citrus.

Mouthfeel: medium and smooth.

Overall:
This is a great brew. It is very well balanced with some very pleasing flavors.

this is a great beer! copper in color, clear with nice khaki colored head. smells slighty sweet and hoppy at the same time.

I am a fan of deschutes brewing and was curious how this compared to their "mirror pond" pale ale hoping in a way the Mirror pond would taste better for the fact its easy to find and u can get it year round, but of course this "north west" (not sure what constitutes a "north west" pale ale) is in my opinion better tasting. has more flavors and layers of complexity yet not overly complex by any means.

Taste malty and hoppy at the same time, but more importantly these two traits are balanced VERY nicely. Has a slightly sweet aftertaste but not too much for a pale. initial mild hops followed by delicious sweetness.

If you see this beer and are at all curious about it TRY IT!
