Deschutes Brewery Lil’ Squeezy Juicy Pale Ale
What the brewers say
A blend of juicy hops and delicate malt character with fresh citrus flavors and zesty aroma.
What our panel thought
Caramel and biscuit notes lead into a nice floral-citrus hop bouquet. Sweet taste, with caramel malt and orange juice, blood orange, pineapple. Good hop flavor. Smooth bitterness lingers well into the finish. Delivers on its promise.
What our editors thought
Toasted bread and caramelized orange on the nose—juicy with ‘throwback’ pale-malt notes. The sip is somewhat neutral, balanced between that endearing malt and a bit of tight citrus, with a tweak of pithy bitterness.
