Deschutes Green Lakes Organic Ale, a year round offering from Deschutes Brewing, poured a orange-red amber into the glass with a tenacious white head. The nose was fruity, with stone fruits and apples standing out.
Deschutes Green Lakes Organic Ale opened with a fruity spiciness that was a bit surprising for an amber before mellowing into a sweet, dark sugar middle. Some toasted grain came through before a slow fade with mild emerging bitterness.
Deschutes Green Lakes Organic Ale is an interesting ale worth trying. It straddles the fence of never being too hoppy, too sweet, or too malt forward.
