3.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: JUN 7, 2006 On draft at McKenzie II. Poured a dark copper. Very nice aroma; piney with lots of fruit, even some banana esters. Flavor was a solid APA. Solid malt backbone to this one. Not all that hoppy. What is it with brewpubs not being able to properly carbonate their beer? Seriously, I think every brewpub I’ve ever been to needs a lesson on carbonation and how important a beer’s appearance is...

Another decent but not overwhelming pale ale from another American brewer. No, I won’t knock it, but it just wasn’t special. Poured the usual off yellow to amber color with a nice head that laced very well. The hops were present, but not that strong. The aroma was floral and the flavor much the same. The mouthfeel was somewhat light and carbonated, again just not standing out from other Pale Ales. (Can’t everyone brew a beer at this level of competence?)

Poured an amber color with a small, off white head that left light lacing on the glass. Aroma of floral hops, citrus fruits, toffee malts, and some fresh cut grass as well. Taste of some citrus fruits, light pine and caramel malt, with a medium bitterness in the finish.

According to the bartender, this is Old Rogue Pale Ale just renamed. It did taste a little better than I remember O.R. tasting but I’m guessing that’s just batch inconsistancies.

Poured a clear golden body with an off-white head. Sweet aroma. A little on the grapefruit side but nicely balanced in the finish. Not bad.

Easily the most aggressive beer in their lineup and of course, it’s a grapefruit monster. Gross. Smells nice, though.

Cloudy amber body, no head. Finally a beer from this place I can get into! Big, hoppy flavor, with all the elements of citrus, pine, and loads of floweryness. I could drink this all night.
