Farily dark and cloudy standard brown pour. The aroma is quite malty; roasted and barleywine like aromas and dark fruits. Not what I expected from the aroma. Flavor is malty, large fruits, sweet, but only a little hop flavor. Really not the beer that I expected because it seems to have an almost barleywine like character, but it is still fairly nice.

This has somehow eluded me over the years, and too bad, it’s a good one (as are most Rogue beers). The hops are crystal clear in every respect here. Actually, the beer pours a very light brown and is surprisingly modest in approach for such a flavorful beer. The hops are comlex, mostly floral and super fruity - not so much citrus fruit but dried apricots, currant, etc. The beer warms and opens up a lot - a sign of a good amber. The malt stays nice and mellow while giving the beer an extra smoothness as if it weren’t smooth enough already. One great amber and solid as can be.

jgentgesdo (685) - Tulsa, Oklahoma, USA - MAY 9, 2005
Pours cloudy amber with a medium tan head. Nose is floral hops with a faint juniper note and some coffee. Well balanced, malty flavor. Fair bitterness, nice bitter aftertaste. Good.

Hoppy, piney, resinous nose; simple, doughy, slightly nutty ample caramel maltiness followed by a substantial, charactoristically Rogue rough bitterness

kujo9 (1095) - North Ridgeville, Ohio, USA - MAY 4, 2005
22 oz bomber: Hazy coppery amber w/a lasting off white head. Roasty and Caramel aroma followed by a lightly citrusy/piney hop. Caramel gets stronger as it warms, the roastiness falls behind but stays present. Some moderate fruitiness as it warms as well and also a toasty malt aroma. Very well balanced, but finishes with a hint of bitterness that lingers every so slightly into the aftertaste. Caramel malt is very present and the roasty flavor is light adding to complexity. Lightly citrusy hop flavored in the finish. The aftertaste lingers with caramel and toasty malt. Fuller medium body, low medium carbonation, and smooth mouthfeel that dries out in the finish. Overall a very flavorful amber... probably the most flavorful one I’ve had in a while.

Nice pour and appearance. Sure is full of hops, but the malts come through as well, making it very drinkable, actually surprisingly good.

Amber in colour with a lasting beige head. Nutty malt aroma, with a similar flavour. Mostly just mild nutty cara with some hoppy notes. Not bad.

Some people around my hometown of Newport, OR swear by American Amber. Me personally... I think it’s just a decent ale. The aroma is awesome, the appearence is intising... then once it finally comes down to endulging in this ale, it comes off almost harsh. Comming from Rogue’s hometown, I know Rogue has so much more to offer the beer lover than this ale displays.
