Review – Deschutes Cinder Cone Red
From Deschutes Brewing – Located on the northern slope of Mt. Bachelor, the Cinder Cone was also known as “Red Hill” due to its reddish color that is revealed as the seasons change, the weather warms and the snow melts. It’s spring. Time to get outside.
Deschutes Brewing – Cinder Cone Red 12. oz bottle poured into a pint glass. 5.3 % abv.
Appearance: Pours a dark, clear auburn with a 1/4 inch of creamy white suds.
Aroma: Faint aromas of piny hops and bready yeast.
Taste: A touch of sweet malt and bread flavors followed by a sturdy level of bitter hops.
Mouthfeel: Deceivingly heavy. It hits my tongue as thin, but as I inspect further, it seems full bodied and heavy.
Overall: A well crafted, hoppy ale.
