Beer # 23: Deschutes Red Chair
Brewery: Deschutes Brewing (Bend, Oregon)
Style: American Pale Ale
Who I drank it with: Some buddies over lunch
The Conversation Over Beer: We are all actually contemplating how we are going to finish school projects without losing “it.”
Grading the Beer:
Appearance: Pours a clear copperish orange with a massive off white head.
Smell: Tons of piney and citrus hops paired together with a semi-sweet malt profile.
Taste: A nice one two punch of citrus hops and piney hops hit your tongue followed by that semi-sweet malt character that I had found in the nose. This is one very well balanced beer.
Mouthfeel: Light to medium bodied with a good amount of carbonation.
