Light golden. Huge frothy,whip cream,of a head. Potent,pilsner malt,and grassy,hops in the aroma. Fizzy,soft,palate. Decent,but not enough,pilsner malt flavors.Actually,quite good flavors,but the yeast,detracts from the flavor,for me. Finish is very grassy,more malts. I would like this much more if it was filtered,less yeastiness. Overall,not too bad,on draft,could probably drink quite a few.

Rogue Nation, San Francisco: Very meady with a citrusy nose. Light white head. Wheaty taste with a strong citrus overtone and a NICE accent of hops.

Pours dark flaxen with a small head of white and some spotty lacing. Hops and pilsner malts in the aromas. Bread and hop flavors. Some malts. Finishes dry, malty palate, and a medium body. Pretty good pils.

Really carbonated, decent color. Aroma was okay. I think i expected more from Rogue considering the Morimoto Imperial Pilsner is fantastic - this was just okay.

Clear golden color, white head. Lots of lacing. The aroma is crisp with saaz, light malt. The flavor is very balanced one of the best pils I've had. Dry finish, light and easy drinking pils. The trademark pacman taste definately feels through here.

I'm feeling adventerous today... I typically hate Pilsners, but I love Rogue... Pours super yellow, really pale, with a pretty big white head. Leaves a ton of lacing on the glass. Flowery-honey scent, smells really sweet. Mouthfeel is bubbly and thicker than most other pilsners. Super hoppy, almost like a weird IPA. Kind of unique. Overall not bad.

On tap: Quite a nice American take on a Czech Pils. Reminds me of Prima Pils and that's a good thing. Clear and straw-colored with a moderate white head. Nice clean aroma of malt and hops. This is my first experience with Sterling hops and I like them. Very similar to Czech Saaz. Firm bitterness. Moderately malty with some sweetness. Nice. I'd definitely like to sit down with a few more pints of this.

UPDATED: JAN 29, 2004 Bottle pours a hazy golden color, with substantial head and carbonation. Prominent lacing unlike most pilsners I seem to find. Aroma is somewhat hay/straw like. Initial taste is a bit sweet with an effervescent mouthfeel. The finish quickly turns mildly bitter and then slowly fades away leaving your mouth thinking you had a mild IPA. Definately worthy of having another.

Murphy (1759) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - JAN 16, 2004
Head is rocky and bubbley, good stuff. Color is typical medium yellow lager. Aroma is grassy and too typical of pilsners. Palate is medium bodied, starts sweet with an immediate turn to bitterness from Sterling hops. Quite smooth to drink, but leaves the tongue wrapped in a strong bitter flavor. Not bad.
