Poured into a pilsener glass. A solid three fingers of head on top a hazy, golden body. It’s beautiful with the bubbles coming up.
It smells like wet barley, like a field just rained on.
Biting bitterness up front that holds on to the end. A balance of sweet malt comes in but can’t hold up to the hops. Really good flavor, impossible to ignore.
Crisp and medium body, moderate carbonation.
An excellent pilsner that you can’t go wrong with.

First beer at a BJs pairing dinner. This is what a pilsner should be. Noble hops. Light body, but not water.

ENG: 650ml bottle from Sherbrooke store in Edmonton. Color is very light-straw, a bit hazy with medium tan head. Quite saturated. Aromas of grass, malt, crackers, hops, a bit too soury. Taste is malty and peach with hints of hops and caramel. Some bitter aftertaste and smooth finish. Overall there’s no craze in it, it’s just a very refreshing beer, great for summer time. ///~~~/~~~/// ///~~~/~~~/// PL: Butelka 650ml kupiona w Sherbrooke w Edmonton. Jasna, słomkowa, nieco mętna - opalizująca barwa ze średnią jasną pianą. Dość nasycone. Aromaty trawy, słodu, krakersów, chmielu, nieco zbyt kwaśne. Smak słodowy z dodatkiem brzoskwini i nutami chmielowymi i karmelowymi. Nieco goryczkowy posmak ale delikatny, gładki finisz. Podsumowując nie ma tu szału, jest to po prostu bardzo orzeźwiające, lekkie piwo, idealne na lato.

UPDATED: JAN 11, 2015 I feel this could have been a bit better, but not too bad for an American pils. Average crackery aroma and taste, veru grainy, not enough snap in the hops. Decent body and finish, nice pour

As a Czech guy I had few pilsners with traditionally floor malted grains. However never enjoyed grassy to floral hops in Pilsner. If Rogue uses his own grains and malting methods than I am missing a fuller body.

Transfer from BA review on 5-2-14-
Served on tap in a pint glass
Appearance – The beer is served a lightly hazed golden yellow color with a one finger head of billowy white foam. The head fades rather quickly leaving a fantastic level of foamy lace rings on the sides of the glass.
Smell – The aroma of the beer is heaviest of a bready and cracker like smell mixed with some light sweetness of a peach and apple nature. Along with these smells are a bit of hay and grass as well as some aromas of a more floral nature.
Taste – The taste begins with a crisp bready and more biscuit like flavor with some light fruit flavors of pear and a bit of peach. Right from the start there is a bit of earthiness that persists throughout the taste. A hint of caramel develops later in the tongue, but some of the fruit flavors are lost, with the flavor remaining overall very crisp. Some other hop flavors of a floral and grassy nature join the tongue later on as the taste advances. Some light grainy flavors and a some more fruity flavors come to the tongue at the very end, sweetening the taste a touch and mingling with the rest of the flavors to still leave a very nice crisp and refreshing taste on the tongue.
Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is on the thinner side with a carbonation level that is on the higher side. Both are fantastic for the moderately drier, crisp, and refreshing taste of the brew and create a nice overall feel.
Overall – A rather tasty and refreshingly crisp brew. Great for the summertime and a nice one to try if you get a chance.

"a nice, semi-sweet, grassy pilsner. the only odd thing about the Rogue variations is that the body seems a little...idunno...thick? for the style. not bad, just not typical. pretty nice beer with a crisp finish. i don’t buy too many $6 pilsners, though. A one timer."
