Orange pour into a glass with a light white head. Nose is malty with a slight hop presence. Taste is kind of strange. I donít know If itís rose petal or what. Soapy. Meh.

1st July 2013
Hazy gold beer, little white head. Palate is light, dry and crispy. Thin creamy malt, dry. Rose perfume, but not sweet sweet or cloying, nicely judged. Whisper of citrus. Finishes dry. Somewhat one dimensional but does what it says on the tin!

1.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Pours a clear gold/orange with a small white head.
Smells floral as expected with some malty sweetness too. Not really picking up heavy roses on the nose.
Tastes weirdly floral, but not good floral like a heavily cascade hopped beer. Hardly any hops at all, just a weird rose flavor. Good news is if I ever want this flavor again, I have a large rose bush in my front yard.
Undercarbonation leads to an even worse experience.
My first drain pour in quite a while. After a few sips these became way too overpowering and going through 22 oz wasnít happening.

A 22 oz bottle at Hometown Pizza in McCall, Idaho. This poured into my chilled shaker glass was clear dark gold with a medium sized head and light lacing. Nose is caramel malts with distinct floral notes from the rose petals. Light to medium body. Flavor is clean malts with some floral hops. No bitterness. The finish is of the rose water. Very refreshing beer on a hot summer day and went perfectly with the pizza.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
22 oz bottle poured into tiny rocks glass. Pours medium dark golden with thick off white head. Aroma is a bit of malt and big sweet floral rose notes. Amazing smell. Taste is rather pedestrian in comparison - mild slightly sweet malt and dry floral finish. Very little, if any, hops. Not sure what makes this imperial, but an interesting beer nonetheless. Much more rose in it than Rogueís Mom Hef.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
22oz bottle pours a golden color with a thick frothy head. The froth tastes of rose and spices. The beer is a little overpowering with the rose flavor.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours bright amber clear in color with a light sandy white head. The aroma brings pure roses from the rosewater and petals, very pure in the nose. The flavor brings an aged golden ale yeasty base with some roses in a sweet vague floral manner remaining. Unfortunately does not work very well with a few years on it.

Bottle. Pours an orange-gold color with a moderate head. A little malty in the nose, but an easy drink. Not a great taste, but not bad.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
651mL thanks to MrLo. Pours a full haze orange golf. Medium off-white head with okay retention. Spotty lace. Nose is sharper Bloody Mary, very intense botanicals, Grandmas perfume with lavender and rose petals. Taste follows suit- thicker orange, dough, sweet candies, toffee, sharper floral botanicals and rose/lavender. Not bad.
