3.45/5 rDev -7.5%
12 oz. bottle, with best before date of 09/20/2014. A new beer to me from Deschutes, acquired as part of their variety twelve pack.
Poured into a Duvel tulip glass.
A - It pours a nice hazed golden orange colored body with lots of tiny sediment floating in the glass. Some thin wispy lacing on the glass, but none really sticks. Looks pretty nice. 4
S - The smell is pretty faint, but pleasant enough. Light florals, bready malts, and a subtle citrus note. 3
T - Taste follows the nose - bready, malty, floral, with a light citrus pith note. Very clean and refreshing. 3.5
M - The feel is crisp, smooth, and clean. This thing goes down wayyyy easy. Light-bodied with nice carbonation. Lightly bready on the finish, with no real lingering flavors of any kind. 4
Overall, a nice easy drinking sessionable beer from Deschutes. I could definitely put away a few of these on a hot summer day. I could see this pairing extremely well with some barbeque. Recommended.
