4.15/5  rDev n/a
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

A- Almost no head, but this is from a growler which I've opened once before. Pale straw yellow with a bit of a haze.

S- Great malty smell with wonderful fruity tones to this. The lager yeast smell is there. There is just something about lager yeast that is very pronounced that with each lager style it always seems to be there.

T- Straw, and malty bready goodness. This has a good deal of sweetness to it that reminds me of honey. The fruit flavors are a mash of dark and bright feeling fruits. There is a hearty grain taste that really comes though.

M- Very full body, almost slightly too thick, the lost carbination would have made this beer really pop.

D- Very drinkable and easy to relax with. (710 characters)

Served in a pilsner glass at the Portland pub.

appearance - gold and bubbly, head settled quickly, very little lacing

smell - floral and earthy hops, rustic and bready malts

taste - a variety of malts and hops, earthy, floral, rustic, noticeable alcohol (perfect for the style)

mouthfeel - warm, full bodied, medium carbonation

drinkability - a complex beer, fairly big for 7.4%, couldn't have had more than the half pint i was served

From Deschutes:

This craft made malt liquor was made with Vienna, Pilsner, and
Munich malts. Loads of German Perle, Halletuarer, and Czech Saaz hops were used to balance this easy drinking, golden lager.
