Good, easy drinking beer. It's nothing to write home about. There are plenty of good options available, it's unlikely I'll purchase again,

Dark golden body with thin off white head. Light aroma of malt, touch of hops. Taste is also light, malt, honey, hay. Short finish with dry malt palate. Expected better from Deschutes.

2/20...an absolute winner. Bright copper pour, darker on top. Fluffy descending white foamy cap. English pale nose, breads, fruits, toffee. Subtle sprucey pine. Loaded malty flavor, sneaky hidden bitter bite behind the toffee/caramel layers. Smooth and loaded with flavor. Hard down to gulp down. Delicious.

A 12 fl oz bottle with a best by date of 19th April 2016. Poured into a Moonzen teku glass.

Appearance: It poured a clear golden copper colour with a one finger slightly off white head that dissipates quickly leaving only a little lacing.

Aroma: Bready and biscuit malt with a hint of caramel, fruity pineapple and apricot.

Taste: A strong bready malt backbone with some nice light apricot, grapefruit, pine and grass.

Mouthfeel: Light bodied with medium carbonation.

Overall: It’s easy to drink and nice and fruity. A decent beer but nothing spectacular.

A- Copper, semi-hazy. Cream colored head. Retains at 1/4" and little bits of lacing.

T- Earthy, a little floral, and slight toast. Mild but flavorful.

M- Light, very clean. Floral, semi-dry finish. Really nice.

O- Nice. Mild, but flavorful. Really clean, and a great drink.

Tastes and smells like a Northwest beer. Probably a bit heavy for some taste buds, but if your a fan of beer from Washington and Oregon this will rank high with your favorite Ale's.

Bought a 6 pack from Don Quiojte $7.77. Amber color, light mouthfeel, smooth clean taste, no aftertaste, overall a great beer for when you want to drink a lot. Surprised that the alcohol is not higher give the amount of taste.
