Deschutes Green Lakes Amber Ale ....

Today I am sampling a Green Lakes Amber Ale from Deschutes Brewery.  5.2% ABV is listed on the twelve ounce bottle.  The Deschutes web site shows 45 IBUs.

This beer poured with a small, lighter tan colored head.  Beer color is a darker amber or copper.  I am getting fruit, citrus and caramel in the aroma.  It is nicely sweet.  The taste has a mellow bitter, caramel, nuts, bread.  There is also a floral quality.  The aftertaste leave you with a bitter note and a little floral.  This is a smooth, balanced, flavorful amber.
