Tasting: Deschutes Buzzsaw Brown

Not every seasonal beer is a 8%abv+ roasty, hoppy intense experience.   Deschutes Buzzsaw Brown is a classic brown ale.  A session beer for winter.

Tasting: Chilled to ~40 degrees (f) from a pint glass.

Appearance: 3/3 Mahogany color, the beer is very clear with tiny bubbles.
Head: 3/3 Light foamy head that lasts.
Aroma: 3/3 Very light malt aroma with hints of nut.
Flavor: 3/3 Wonderful malty flavor, slightly sweet, hints of praline, very low bitterness.
Mouth feel: 3/3 Light bodied, medium carbonation, smooth on the palette.
Overall: 3/3 A very good beer, my favorite brown ale to-date.
Buzz: 2/3 4.8% ABV, this is a beer that would be a great mid-day beer on the slopes.  It won't slow you down.
