Pour is deep amber/copper with a big rocky off white head. Hints of burnt sugar, toffee, herbs and hops. Flavour is more malt notes, toffee, and a nice turn of moderate bitter hop in the finish. Smooth mouthfeel, very flavoursome and drinkable. Nice.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap in the Globe, HK. Amber brown in colour. This was a well balanced beer, starting with nice crisp toasty malt and then a strong but not overly aggressive bitter pine hop. Very enjoyable. Apart from being a little strong would be an excellent session beer.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Toasty, meaty caramel malt flavor juxtaposed with some piney hops. Basic hazy orange, seems still. Chalky malt that’s rather blunt, hop balance at maybe 30 BUs. Dry, lingering finish. Otherwise soft palate feel with a medium body. Not really a session beer, good with lunch.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Very smooth and drinkable beer. Slight roasted malt notes coupled with a light fruit hop profile and a biscuit sweetness. The most any drinking and balanced of the Rogue beers. Enjoyable although a little less memorable than some of there other beers. Left me with the feeling of a classy, grown up beer!
