4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Review based on the BJCP015 guidelines (style 19A). Bottle 35cl - Batch unknown. AROMA: moderate, almost prominent hop roma with notes of floral, slight citric and some pine nature. mild fruitiness is perceived as slight orange. balanced sweet malt background with a toasty and caramelly character. APPEARANCE: ambar to dark ambar color and somewaht clear. Medium ivory head with medium to medium-low retention. FLAVOR: a blend of malt and hops with medium to medium low intensity, ranging from a malty sweet, biscuity, caramelly flavor and a floral and fruity hops. medium to medium-high bitterness that lingers beyond a semi-dry finish. the balance is almost even but tiltet towards a fruity hop resence. PALATE: medium-low body with medium carbonation. no astringency. OVERALL: a good american amber ale with a balance between malt and hops, but still a tiny bit tilted towards hops. a nice example of marriage between the two ingredients.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
nuts, licorice, orange, cloudy, lightly bitter, medium body. Appealing to the nose, malty with a bite. Beautiful amber-orange pour. Unfortunately, watered-down taste, bitter hops without much nuance. Medium bodied, with little to show for it. Bog-standard amber ale with a pretty face.

Dark amber in color with small beige head. Aroma is roasty caramel malt. A bit of hoppiness which is mostly overwhelmed by the malt. Roasty finish. Medium bodied and quite tasty

Rogue Amber Ale 5%
Can, a lovely bet pour with a malty peppery aroma with light fruit notes.
Medium bodied and fairly smooth the taste is bitter malty biscuit with floral/fruity hoppiness. A solid beer that goes down smooth, somewhat hop forward but balanced.

22oz bottle 1/12/16 (Old Notes)-Pours amber with a decent sized head. Aroma of malt and slight hops. Taste of the same with caramel and roasted malt. This light to medium bodied brew is not bad.

A bit malty with a faint bitterness at the finish. Mild licorice aftertaste which I didn’t expect at all. Not very happy but fairly smooth. Wouldn’t seek it out but wouldn’t reject it either

Bottle 330ml. Hazy copper with small beige head. Aroma of caramel, a bit soapy with some citrus and peach. The flavor starts with light sweetness followed by citrusy bitterness (lemon, orange), notes of caramel, a bit grassy and piney. Medium-bodied.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Clear amber with a nice white creamy head. Aroma is mostly malty with some hops in the background, a bit of caramel and bread as well. Moderately sweet, decent malty backbone with flavors of caramel, toasted malt and biscuit, light fruitiness, strong herbal bitterness in the finish, a bit harsh. Medium-bodied, dry enough with proper carbonation. I would prefer more fruity hops but still quite decent.
