Deschute’s Buzzsaw Brown

I’ve been holding on to a bottle of this for awhile now, and decided to finally review it. I have all kinds of stuff up here right now, and I’ll try to start pumping out a review for everything new that I try. I’ve always been a big fan of Deschutes, and have tried most of their year-round and seasonal selections, and they make my favorite porter and holiday beer.

Stats: Brown Ale. 4.8% ABV. 30 IBUs. Seasonal: January to March. Oregon.

So, it’s a brown ale, and has a nice dark brown color. Good lacing, but not much head, which is pretty typical.

On the nose, it has a ton of caramel. Very malty nose, with hints of maple syrup and molassis.

It has that sweetness that comes from the malts. Nice, creamy mouthfeel. Lightly carbonated.

On the palate, I get saltines for days. It has a definite biscuit/cracker thing going on. Plus the malts add some sweetness, and a maple, nutty characteristic comes out. It makes me think of bacon? Tiny bit of bitterness on the backend, but this beer is not hop driven.

All in all, I enjoy this beer. It’s not amazing, but it’s a good beer for these cold ass/snowy days up here in Bellingham. If you are in the mood for a brown ale, or even a winter warmer type of beer, give it a try, and do it before the end of March, before it goes away. 85 Points.
