Pretty amber color. I did not notice the coffee aroma and the hops were very nice for an amber style beer. I was happy that it wasn’t too overdone on the hops or malt. A very drinkable beer. Too bad I was driving.

Great beer. You can smell the malt. You can taste the sweetness that gives place at the end to the bitter taste of the hops.

aroma is caramel and dust, taste is soft and balanced caramel malts and hoppy dustiness. A tad too much caramel for my taste.

355mL bottle (BB: 30th June 2014). Pours a clear toffee/amber colour with an off white head. Slightly spicy/creamy/toffee aroma with a caramel malt flavour and grapefruit dominating the flavour. Medium bitterness and body. I imagine this beer would be much better when fresh however it is still very nice considering it could be 9 months old.

Amber body, off white head. Aroma has caramel malt, some yeasty fruits and resiny hops. Flavour is quite the same. I enjoyed this quite a lot.

Reviewed from notes.
The appearance has a amber colored body that leaves a half finger white head, lasts for about thirty seconds and then dies. The body is too dark for any carbonation to be seen rising. No lacing was seen at all.
The smell has some roasty hops combined very nicely with some caramels and coffee.
The taste has some bitter hops coming out a bit stronger and giving a quick bite and allows a slow flavor of the coffee and caramel coming out.
On the palate, she sits about a medium with nothing obscure on the tongue, just an overall basic good feel.
Overall, I like this and would have it again.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Cor cobre, brilhante, com espuma bem formada mas de média duração. Aroma predominante de tosta de malte, com frutas cítricas (maracujá) e diacetil bem de longe. Sabor acompanha o aroma. Corpo leve a médio, amargor baixo a moderado. Retrogosto de amargor suave e de pouca persistência. Cerveja equilibrada mas que não empolga, mesmo batendo perfeitamente o estilo de Amber Ale: menos aroma, mais equilíbrio, mais malte.

Finally getting around to rating George Clooney, he’s the last regular offering from Rogue that I’ve been alternatively missing and avoiding for years. Nose is caramel and very sticky toasty malt, pours a hazy copper with tawny highlights and a creamy beige head. Light body is bone dry, there’s some hard crystal malt character with sharp yeast and a slight mineral touch, but otherwise light hop prickling and low bitterness. Can’t believe how dry this is for an Amber from Rogue! Hop character is muted but fresh and faintly woodsy, overall flavor isn’t particular clean, is lightly grainy, but OK. One of their better regular offerings, a small triumph of blandness.
