Pours a dark red with light tan head. Earthy aroma... light hops and caramel. Taste does not disappoint. Malts are dominant initially and blend nicely with a crisp, tart hoppy finish. Leaves the palette dry and just itching for more of this wonderful beer. Maybe not "complex" enough for some people, but from me it gets a rather high rating for it's great balance and drinkability.

Suttree (5224) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - DEC 23, 2003
Dark reddish brown, not amber, but I suppose that "Rogue Dark Reddish Brown" doesn't really roll off the tongue, does it? Fresh, clean malty aroma. Earthy, resiney piney hop presence. Some malt, enough keep the beer interesting, and familiar Rogue crispness through the finish.

On tap at Summits Wayside Tavern- Rogue is probably the best American Micro available to me on a regular basis and they have yet to let me down. Although this probably isn't even their best local offering it is still pretty damn good. Nice amber color...Flavor was heavy on caramel but had a firm citrus bite that left me wanting another sip. Very well balanced finish. They do a great job

omnivore (270) - San Francisco, California, USA - DEC 7, 2003
Rogue Nation- San Francisco: Pretty wooden amber in color. It had a subtle, sweet aroma. The flavor was delicate and lightly hoppy. Unfortunately, it was easily overwhelmed by my lunch.

Nexxus (261) - Apple Valley, Minnesota, USA - DEC 4, 2003
A gorgeous dark ruby/amber with a diminishing medium off white rocky head. Sweet malty aroma with nut and light fruit notes. Medium smooth palate with lively carbonation. Flavor begins slightly sweet with a hint of caramel, citrus, roast and bread. There is a nice fruity hop bite along the way. Finishes slighly bitter and malty with a hint of pine. A good session beer, but not very memorable.

UPDATED: NOV 29, 2003 (Draught) Frothy, light orange head with a copper body. Hoppy nose. Nice balance between hops and malt. Delicious!

Light brown, very nice head that is mostly diminishing. Very big hop profile for an amber ale, and I like it. I've had IPAs with less hops infused. Very flavorful and satisfying. If I could depend on this being in stock regularly in my area, it would become a regular of mine.

Reid (1938) - Salem, Oregon, USA - NOV 18, 2003
Bought in the patriotic 22 oz brown bomber. Lists all the hops and malts on the side very helpful also "no chemicals or additives" This beer appears a very dark amber almost brown hue, much darker than most amber ales I have seen. There is a nice but small head, which fades down to a lovelly thick creamy lace down the glass. The aroma is very strong for an amber..has a good malt profile and the hops come shining through..smell some light lemon and apple aromas also. This beer tastes very nice indeed..sweet malts at the start and a great Cascade hop finish at the end.It's very hoppy for an amber , indeed this has more hops than some IPAs i have had!! A remarkable feel in the mouth..it has carbonation yet its still also very smooth on the tongue! A most drinkable beer..especially for those that like a bit of hops!

MMM...Beer (385) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - NOV 16, 2003
Deep brownish red color, with a nice head that fades just a tad too soon. Coffee on the nose and palate with significant trails of alcohol. Very smooth great finish. Nice "Welcome to Winter" beer.
