Have definitely been on a Deschutes kick lately. Being that they are local and have a pretty good variety, it kind of makes it easy. Tonight was the Deschutes Cascade Ale, which is one of their regular brews. Cascade Ale is a pale ale that smells sweet, tastes sweet, and leaves just a little teeny bit of sour in the finish… It is also silky smooth with just a little tingle on the tongue. Keeping this from the upper echelons of our blog rating system, though, is the ever so slight watered down taste I get as I make it past the half way mark and into the home stretch. No… not backwash… truly a bit watered down.
Still, I wouldn’t turn it down if offered. I just won’t actively search it out.
