Tasting: Deschutes Jubelale 2008

Tasting: Chilled to ~35 degrees (f) from a pint glass.

Appearance: 3/3 Deep red in color, the beer is very clear with tiny bubbles.
Head: 3/3 Light, foamy, cream-colored head that lasts.
Aroma: 3/3 Light hops and mild malt.
Flavor: 3/3 Wonderful biscuity flavor, with very strong hops profile.
Mouth feel: 3/3 Light bodied, medium-high carbonation, very pleasant somewhat piney bitterness remains.
Overall: 3/3 A very good beer, great price, and flavor. Not as rich as some holiday beers.
Buzz: 3/3 % Good kick, buzz arrives early.

I determined later that the temperatures below 35 degrees really don't bring out the best in a beer.  Future tastings will be done at 45.
