Bottle from Only Fine Beer (bottles). Distinctly un-Amber - brown in fact. Nice crusty head, with a sweet fresh aroma. Fairly straightforward smooth, tart beer, with a lasting hoppy finish which is bitter and clean. A citric crispness dominates the mouth along with the standard Rogue flavours. Nice.

A nice amber ale. Deep amber color with a creamy off-white head. Some hops and malt in the aroma. Nice warm taste. Hoppy and a little bitter in the aftertaste. Overall pretty decent. Had this on tap at the Sunspot Cafe in Knoxville, TN.

Gmku (294) - Iowa City, Iowa, USA - FEB 16, 2004
UPDATED: APR 21, 2004 Pretty decent. But not very complex. A decent amber ale in all respects but I expected more from Rogue. T there's nothing really bad about this beer. Rather spend the money on Capital's Wisconsin Amber or 3Floyds' Robert the Bruce.

color is deep amber, head is tan and creamy..well-carbonated. aroma is a combo of bitter chocolate, and prunes. flavor is woody, raisin, prunes and chocolate. i dont detect any coffee in this, and it is surprisingly dry, in my opinion.

Dorwart (2386) - Robbinsville, New Jersey, USA - FEB 4, 2004
UPDATED: MAY 4, 2008 Thin head with good carbonation that leaves some of the best lacing I have ever seen. Complex aroma with raisins, malt and a touch of alcohol. Light citrusy hops presence. Color is a cloudy orange/amber. Flavor is quite thick and not as complex as the aroma. Tons of malts with a touch of caramel. Lots more hops presence in the flavor. Quite bitter actually. Grapefruti pith is the best way to describe this. Bitter finish which I did not expect from the aroma. Quite the good amber ale.

Paid $3.89 for a 650 ml bottle. Nice amber color, with a soft fluffy beige head. Looks appealing. MMM smell... smells like an IPA. Lots of sweet citrus fruit mixed with coffee in there... I do LOVE this smell... I wish I had a candle that smelled exactly like this. Not overly crazy about the taste, or I should say aftertaste. Very hoppy, almost overly hoppy... It has an IPA taste going in, but finishes with a bit too much. Nice going in, not as nice going down. Drinkability is lowered because it's just too much. I may buy this beer again, but it'll be so I can whiff that pleasing aroma again. Reminds me a lot more of an ESB or IPA than an amber ale.

surprisingly un-amber color, quite dark. interesting blend of an american pale ale taste and a dunkel dark malts. smooth drinking, and nice, but not the best rogue

Deep reddish brown, tan sticket head. Stale coffee and malt aroma. Smooth mouth feel with a bitter finish.

Shag (2637) - Chattanooga, Tennessee, USA - JAN 11, 2004
UPDATED: APR 18, 2004 A reddish brown appearance with a nice looking head and lacing. Aroma is malty with some hops coming through. Flavor is a little thin at least compared to other Rogue beers. Some hop bitterness followed with a bit of a smokey tobacco and sour grape flavor. A nice sipping beer but Rogue offers many better. Good one though.

SpringsLicker (3169) - Tennessee, USA - JAN 2, 2004
A richly colored dark beer full of ruby highlights that throw wafts of hops into the air from a nice head. Fits the pattern of other Rogue offerings well. All in all , I find the Rogue offerings to be quite well crafted and drinkable.
