DESCHUTES RIVER ALE

Deschutes River Ale. I saw this beer on tap at Kingston Public Bar and Kitchen in Newtown, Sydney. They often get interesting beers in so I decided to give it a go.

I didn’t even know at the time but apparently this beer is an American Blonde Ale / Golden Ale. On the malt bill are Pale, Munich, Carapils, and Crystal. On the hop front are Cascade, Crystal and Nugget. It’s a mild 28 IBU and a woeful 4% ABV.

Pale yellow, lager-like appearance, crystal clear with a frothy white head.  Grainy malt aroma.  Thin body with almost non existent carbonation which was strange for the first pour of a new keg. Watery, grainy malt flavour with a chalky, astringent finish. Less than a third of the way through the schooner I abandoned it.

A beer that truly tastes like it came from the river.

 

3/10
