Clear golden color with average sized head (nothing special there). Light grapefruit and more malty aroma. Taste is mildly hoppy and more malty without being too sweet. Nicely balanced and bready taste. Medium bodied. Not the best of the anniversary series but damn good.

legion242 (2344) - Richardson, Texas, USA - AUG 2, 2004
Poured bright yellow- some nice yeastiness in the bottom clouded it up a bit. Very mild all the way around. Nice head, but very little character. 45 IBUís seemed a strecth. This was however, very refreshing as I sat on my patio at 10pm and it was still 88* outside.

Volgon (2763) - Manchester, New Hampshire, USA - JUL 27, 2004
RBSG 2004: Cloudy yellow amber with a small white head. Light malts, lemon, flowers and hay make up the aroma. Starts and ends sweet, although there is some bitterness at the end also.

hazy golden with a fine white head. Loads of citrus hops in the nose. Flavor is more floral and very understated. Body is medium and bit watery and finishes quickly.

Light golden. Effervescent carb. Light, but velvety-smooth malts. Unfortunately, they were only mildly flavorful. Hops were on the light side as well -- herbal and slightly spicy. Dry finish. Two things made me curious: (1.) This beer was pretty mild for Rogue, not to mention a 15th anniv. beer, and (2.) Whatís the point in lowering a 4x4 truck? Itís like putting a lift kit on a Yugo. Oh, and itís pink! I thought "4x4" was a cool name until I saw the label.

(RBSG04) Cloudy golden body with white head. Aroma is sweet, perfumy, orange. Taste is medium sweet, floral/orange hoppy. Watery, light-medium body with above-average carbonation.

AceOfHearts (1374) - Mountain View, California, USA - JUL 20, 2004
Tap. Golden, clear, crisp pine needles. A little bit of phenolic; not a great effort. They really stretched this 15th anniversay thing a little too far.

Hoppy nose of pine, pacman yeast too, a little spicy, silky dull palate, flavor a little bland at the end.

Pours a slightly hazy golden color with a small white head. Aroma was well hopped with some citrus varieties. Taste was very hoppy but the bitterness balanced well with some background malts. Good brew, but not the top of my list on the 15th series.
