Deschutes River Ale (American Blonde Ale)
serving type: 6 pack bottles from Tamura's, Honolulu, drank in pint glass with ridge (March 2014)
A: Light orange amber, much more yellow than brown, slightly hazy with an extremely crisp and pleasant white head
S: Toasty malt, biscuits, straw, maybe some citrus
M: starts off heavy, oily, a bit sticky, really lightens up as it goes down your throat, astonishingly smooth
T: off-beat citrusy hops that are just bitter enough, a nice complex grainy biscuity malt. This might sound silly, but I can't help but think of river water running over mossy rocks
O: An outstanding brew. So refreshing, you can sip it and ponder away or just pound a six pack. Complex if you want it to be, Deschutes has put out yet another excellent and extremely drinkable beer. Every time I have another bottle I like it more.
Serving type: bottle
