Utter classic of a pale ale, both for its longevity and contribution to craft brewing, as well as for its very classic take on the style. This is a pale ale unafraid of malt. And its malt has character, aromatic, bready, satisfying. The hops are there, a touch floral, a touch tea-like and earthy, but they're secondary to the malt for me and all the better for it. Cheers to Deschutes for an enduring contribution to American brewing.

Pours clear amber color with a 2 finger width foamy head. Head retention and lacing are moderate. Has a citrus, maybe apple, aroma with slight piney hoppiness. Bready malt with a mild bitter hop. Nice bitter aftertaste. Very good beer. Very drinkable session beer.
