Cinder Cone Red Ale

Cinder Cone Red Ale is a craft beer made by Bend, Oregon’s Deschutes Brewery. It pours a dark rusty red color with a thin off-white head. The nose is floral and citrus hops, toffee and caramel malts, and dark fruits. It tastes of citrus and floral hops with a little resin, bready malts, caramel, toffee, and spice. There is a lot of flavor and personality in the brew, so it’s kind of surprising when you find out that it only has a 5.3% alcohol content. It’s a great choice for when you want to enjoy a microbrew without getting too fucked up. All in all, this is one of the better red ales that I’ve experienced. I’d get it again.

Pine Mountain Pilsner

Deschutes Brewery & Public House is one of Oregon’s best breweries, and they have a lot of good breweries in Oregon. Pine Mountain Pilsner is a crisp and refreshing spring release, perfect for day drinking. It pours a clear golden yellow with a nice frothy head. There’s not much of an aroma compared to a stout or IPA. I get hints of hops, grass, spice, some florals, and a little pine. The taste is of bitter hops with a light malt flavor to balance it out. There is some grass, pine, bread, and spice. It’s very smooth and drinkable. It has a 5.2% ABV so feel free to have more than one.
