JonR888710 (999) - Cochabamba, BOLIVIA - JUL 8, 2005
Reddish-amber body, little to no head. What is there has a slightly toasted white bread color. Smells of non0descript malt and vergetable hops. Taste is same with some coffee and caramel, more veggie hops. Bitter finish. Boring beer, typical of the amber style

Yankovitch333 (612) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - JUL 6, 2005
Pours a light copper with a light brown head. Bread, citrus, and nuts on the nose. Medium bodied mouthfeel. Slightly sweet, with bread, orange, lemon, nuts, and perhaps a bit of chocolate. Nice lingering hoppy aftertaste. A fine beer.

Amber with off-white head. Sweet nose with hints of walnuts. A thin, sweet start with following peppery spice and dryness from the hops. Too watery.

turbo (1271) - Arizona, USA - JUL 1, 2005
Bottle poured a nice deep red amber with a nice medium sized head and heavy sticky lacing. Aroma is a bit sweet, hopy...citrus. Flavor is sweet and fruity with a citrus and hops finish.

wnhay (722) - Princeton, New Jersey, USA - JUL 1, 2005
Poured dark amber with a thick brown head. Very good head retention. Smell had coffee, chocolate, graitfruit and citrus. Taste was solid but a bit overdone on the graitfruit. Not too bothersome though. This was quite pleasing.

UPDATED: JUN 25, 2006 June 25, 2006 Re-Rate <P> Aroma is a hop tinged caramel malt affair that has very mild chocolate and nutty aromas. Body is a classic amber and holds a diminishing, diminuitive tan head. Fore is caramel malts, mild chocolate, fairly aggressive hopping for the style, sweet cake sugary notes in the finish, but there is a watery note in the middle and finish that while typical of the style clashes with the chocolate notes which beg for a thicker mouthfeel. <P> Original rating a 3.3 <P> Big hop aroma. Mild malt flavor with a big hop finish. Thin somewhat watery palate. Decent enough.

Magjayran (1378) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - JUN 29, 2005
Pours a dark amber color. Malty aroma. Nice sweet malty flavor is finished with some bitter hops. Hoppy for an Amber and perhaps that’s what makes this an enjoyable beer. Another good Rogue beer.

urbnhautebourg (997) - Annapolis, Maryland, USA - JUN 27, 2005
Good looking darker ale with a beautiful head. Malty, with some very nice hop flavor elements. Seems to acheive what it seeks to accomplish with finesse and balance.

A very well balanced amber from Rogue. Poured a deep reddish orange with a full head and good lacing. Fruity aroma with a little chocolate malt. Chocolate also shows up early in the malt flavor, with a full bouquet of hops in the finish that definitely contained some grapefruity Cascade. Finished with a slight bitter dark-chocolate taste. Again, a extremely well balanced beer that is very drinkable and very enjoyable. Definitely check this one out.
