Formerly Chatoe Rogue Single Malt Ale.

GYO is a Rogue Ales term for Grow Your Own. We made this beer with our own hops and barley.

Malty aroma, deep golden in color with a dense creamy head. medium bodied with a lush rich maltiness from the Dare Malt.

Brewed using 4 ingredients: Rogue Micor Barley Farm first growth Dare Malt, Rogue Micro Hopyard first growth Revolution Hops, Free Range Coastal Water and Pacman Yeast.

In short: A grainy dry yeasty beer of some kind. Not refreshing and tiresome.
How: Bottle 22oz. Consumed fresh a few weeks after purchase.
The look: Almost clear golden blonde body topped by a small white head
In long: Nose is light with notes of bread crust and autumnal dry tree leafs. This is not going to be a hop bomb. Taste is more of the same. Bread crust, yeast, salad croutons, some dry citrus fruits, light floral hops presence. A dry and slightly acidic finish that Id describe as dried lemon skin. Although the body is almost clear I got a strong (too strong) yeasty sensation that did not sit well with the rest of the beer. Weird. Overall quite dry. The opposite of a juicy refreshing APA. This is not refreshing, not nourishing, not interesting. I hope Rogue will bounce back after this lacklustre offering. If history have taught me anything, Ive certainly forgotten it by now.

Just not a fan of this one. Copper colored pour produced a decent white head. Aroma is subtle roasted malt, caramel, and toffee. Flavor is sweet...has a ESB quality...with caramel, honey, and citrus finish. Not their best effort.

Butters (3990) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - SEP 8, 2010
I totally appreciate what these guys were trying to go for. Big fan of the GYO movement. Nice clear light amber pour with decent white head. Nose is sweet mild hops. Flavor has more of the floral hop bitterness, kinda like potpourri. as well as some faint biscuit backbone. Lingering earthy bitterness. Pretty good.

Suttree (5685) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - SEP 5, 2010
Odd that this is supposed to highlight the malt, because I just barely got any malt character from it. A little bit if sweet, grainy notes, then a nice, crisp hop bite. Slightly piney. Nicely thin bodied, and pretty quaffable. Ill definitely drink more of this stuff.

I wanted this to be great, but it is only okay. The maltiness is nice for the palate but leaves a little to be desired in the taste category. The hops are a bit resiny for me. There are better beers out there, especially for the price. I want to support you on this endeavor, Rogue, I really do. But you gotta step your game up

Wombata (567) - Kobe, JAPAN - AUG 27, 2010
Aroma: Some earthy, perfumed hop, ripe mandarin orange malt, a little spice Palate: Flavor: Like the nose with coriander and spice. Finishes bitter and slightly harsh. Comments: a solid Rogue.

savnac (2391) - Anchorage, Alaska, USA - AUG 24, 2010
22 oz bottle. Slightly hazy orange with a white foamy head and some sticky lacing. Aroma of orange peel, flowers, cut grass and some light caramel malt. Sweet and malty upfront with a hop bitterness that slowly fades in. Medium body with active carbonation and a dryish mouth feel. Overall a nice Pale Ale, good balance and drinkability.

Beardface (1517) - Eugene, Oregon, USA - AUG 23, 2010
Bomber. Poured a light golden color with a small white head and solid lacing. Not much of an aroma, mostly a light caramel malt base with some lemon zest and very light orange. Tastes of caramel, floral hops and lemon zest with just a hint of pine in the finish. Okay beer, but disappointing after how great their Black Lager was.
