12oz single, sixer

appearance: served in a Guinness imperial pint, bright orange body, light beige froth. An overall pretty attractive beer.

smell: caramel, bready malts, buttery, minimal hops

taste: this is the last of 6 - a beer that caught me a bit off guard. When i see "NWPA", i assume hoppy as hell, but not this guy. overbalanced to the malt side - buttered rustic bread, caramel, grain, grassy hops underneath. Smells pretty disappointing, but the flavors work

mouthfeel: smooth medium body

overall: Good, but not a repurchase

12-oz bottle into Samuel Smith "Tulip" pint glass

A - 2 fingers of khaki head over a semi-cloudy orange/amber body; minimal carbonation bubbles

S - pine, citrus, touch of light malt, floral hops

T - citrus and spice lead in, joined by smooth malts in the middle; mostly pine in a hoppy finish; a well-balanced brew

M - smooth medium body, sharpness from the high carbonation

O - Red Chair is just an all-around good pale ale!

12 oz bottle pours a medium amber with good head and lacing. Aroma is citrus hops and sweet candy corn malt. Taste is moderate citrus and piney hops with sweet malt backing. Medium body with dry finish. If I were to do a blind taste test I'd probably think this one was an amber with the sweet malt. Good solid sessionable beer from Deschutes.

Poured from a 12 oz. bottle into a pint glass.

S - Citrus. Rich caramel malts. Candy-like sweetness.

A - Quarter-inch off-white head. Clear, reddish, copper hue.

T - Biscuit and caramel malts. Malt dominated but a mild earthy, grassy hop bitterness with hints of lemon and citrus peel balance the beer. Finishes semi-sweet.

M - Medium carbonation. Moderate body.

O - A solid pale ale. Very drinkable.
