Inspired by the Pacific Northwest, this unexpected dry-hopped lager gets its light, citrusy twist from Tettnang Mandarina Hops.

Lost rating from 2017. Deschutes Tasting room, Bend. Pale golden pour, foamy white head. Grainy, bready aroma, hint of hops. Taste is malty, biscuity with a crisp, hoppy back end

2 month old bottle poured into a pint glass. Weak head but good lacing. Average pour, not particularly impressive, and the carbonation seems weak. The color is a very nice pale yellow, classic clean lager. The nose is reminiscent of tart crisp hops on a nice bread (barley) base. The beer introduces itself with a crisp hoppy bitterness up front alongside a thin mouthfeel, finishing with a lasting bready malt that sits for a while. The flavor profile is notable dry across the board. Good lager.

This is easy drinking, and as Deschutes posits on the bottle, it's a "versatile lager" for sure. While I might pick other beers for a nice clear day, I do appreciate this as a straightforward (and tasty) craft lager in a world pervaded by complex beers.

Not big into lagers, but switching it up a bit for warmer weather. This one pours a perfectly clear gold color. Smell is citrus and malt. Feel is very smooth. Taste has some honey and hops with a big malt backbone. Nice camp fire drinker.

Poured from a bottle this has mild hops and floral notes with a bit of citrus. Almost like a lager and a pils mixed together. Pours an opaque golden color with moderate head. Good summer lager as it's light enough to not bog you down. Could use a bit more of a hoppy or citrus flavor.
