I haven't had it on tap to compare, but I have been more than satisfied with the bottles I've bought. If it's better on tap then in bottles, then it must really rock!

Hmm having the bottle right now. I don't care for amber ales so this is not my cup of tea. But it's certainly better than the 2 below. It is missing something... the hops are too muted, so the flavor is very two-dimensional (if that makes sense). I bet the hops come through better on tap.

IMO Bridgeport is better in the bottle as they are all bottle conditioned.

I just bought 2 below after not having it for about a year and a half. Not what I remembered, the hops did not seem to be anywhere near what I remembered.

Cool! Great response Laurel!

I know some people here are not fans of Deschutes, but I never fail to eat and drink at the pub when I travel through Bend. Good food and beer.

My SWMBO used to live in Bend and was a regular at the brewery. She moved to Portland 8 years ago. Every Christmas they send us a Christmas card special delivery. Pretty cool, and it gives me a chance to ride her about exactly how much porter she managed to drink back then.

Me and a couple friends are Deschutes fans, so that's pretty much all I've used for my homebrew. They work great.

I have a sixer of it in the garage fridge. I will have to try one tonight. After trying Shiner Cheer, I'm sure this will taste like heaven.

Jubleale and SN Celebration are the only two I've bought a second time this holiday season. Haven't had any off flavors or underpronounced hoppiness in the Deschutes. I'll have to see if I can find it on tap for comparison.

One of the locals I always like won't be purchased again, Breckenridge Christmas Ale. Bitterness without much hops flavor and a really funky almost spoiled malt flavor.

EdWort, hope you enjoy the Deschutes. What was wrong with the Shiner? I'm looking to get it next trip.
