3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: JUN 30, 2006 Pours a reddish-amber color with a white lacing rather than a head. Nice roasted aroma of caramel malt, a hint of floral hoppiness. Sweet. Very creamy mouthfeel. The taste is mainly of caramel with a touch of hops in the finish. Refreshing.

Pour a cloudy dark amber color. Nice aroma with a hint of caramel. Goes down smooth with a bit of a hop kicker at the end.

Beautiful ruby coloring; mild floral, hoppy aroma. Rich taste with caramel malts in front and a crisp hops kick at the end.
Very nice indeed.

22 oz. bottle. Ruby amber in color with minimal light tan head. Weak aroma of flowers and...perhaps ginger? Sweet taste, well-balanced with hops and malts. Tastes as if it’s mildly spiced. Good for an amber.

duvel tulip glass: copper body, orange highlight, big white slightly rocky slighty airy head that diminishes soapy. the taste isn’t much. the bitter aftertaste reminds me of coffee, because well there really is a little coffee in this. and crackers, the plain ones. also, tanginess like in sour fruit, but it's very very subtle. anyway, a bit weird for an amber. i don’t want coffee. this reminds me of a poor robert the bruce. and i’d much rather have a robert the bruce. $3.99/bomber

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
A strong orange hop aroma and a pine hop taste. Some caramel malt in the taste. Not bad but a little steep at $4.50 for a bomber.

UPDATED: AUG 3, 2014 My favorite Rogue to date. Smelled malty but tasted hoppy but not too hoppy like Dead Guy. Roasted malt flavors are also noticeable. Great balance. I thought I even tasted some hints of cherry? A quality amber beer that Iâ€™d happily drink again.

Tasted the Sea Otter Amber Ale labeled version. Poured a hazy, medium mahogany color with an average size off white head. Hoppy (grass) and caramel aromas and tastes. The taste was a little bit of a let down based upon the promising aroma. Thin and watery palate.

Nice head and lacing. Nice hoppy aroma for an amber. Flavourful amber. Amplifies the flavour of whatever you are eating at the time. Malty and hoppy. Tangy citrus finish. More IPA than amber.
