12oz bottle into standard pint. Pretty excited for this, deschutes never fals and I like ambers.

A: a finger of offwhite head that is leaving good lacing. A splotchy cap remains. Good clear amber color almost red.

S: fruity hops anda slighly sweet malt smell. Pineapple and other tropical fruit notes. Smells pretty good.

T: the hops aren't as fruity as I was expecting. Solid malty body with slightly bitter end. The taste isn't as good as the smell but I would gladly buy this again.

M: good medium body. Nothing amazing about it.

O: a good amber, but nothing fantastic. I enjoy it and will finish happily.

Two fingers of head on a fairly clear, but deep red colored body.
The smell is only faintly caramel.
The taste is has a mild malt sweetness to start, then a mild grapefruit bitterness.
The texture is crisp with moderate carbonation.
This is an easy drinkin' beer but still has some nice flavor.

Twelve oz bottle best by Jan thirteenth two thousand thirteen

A:Pours half finger head, with little retention. Deep amber color.

S: Nose has a strong caramel aroma. Otherwise non description.

T: Carmel malts, slight bitter dry finish. Having trouble being more descriptive.

M: Decent amount of carbonation, dry finish. Medium to light bodied.

O: Easy drinking beer, solid amber. Not overly powerful on the palate, but leaves you knowing you had one if that makes sense.
