2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
330ml bottle. Cloudy red color. Tiny size head, disappears. Peanut skins, faint roast, malts, white caramel candy in aroma. Sweet roasted malts, faint dusty hops, caramel in taste. I think I’ve had it before under different name. Not bad, but also not exciting.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Rouge American Amber Ale has a thin (shelf glass), cream-colored head, a very hazy, deep amber appearance, and a good amount of lacing left on the glass. The aroma is of sweet, medium-roasted barley malt, medium-roast coffee, citrus, and hop resin. Taste is of those elements, but of tea, rather than coffee. The hop bitterness is noticeable, but not harsh. Mouthfeel is medium and somewhat slick, and Rouge American Amber Ale finishes semi-dry and easy going. Overall, it’s one to check out. RJT

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
12 ounce bottle into signature pint glass, no bottle dating. Pours moderately hazy/cloudy copper amber color with a 1 finger dense light khaki head with good retention, that reduces to a thin cap that lingers. Light spotty soapy lacing clings down the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of grapefruit, orange zest, caramel, brown sugar, toffee, toast, biscuit, light nuttiness, herbal, floral, and toasted earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance of malt and hop notes; with solid strength. Taste of grapefruit, orange zest, caramel, brown sugar, toffee, toast, biscuit, light nuttiness, herbal, floral, and toasted earthiness. Fair amount of earthy floral bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of grapefruit, orange zest, caramel, toffee, toast, biscuit, light nuttiness, herbal, floral, and toasted earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Very nice complexity and robustness of hop and malt flavors; with a nice malt/hop balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a fairly creamy, smooth and lightly bready mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with zero warming present after the finish. Overall this is a very nice amber ale. All around good balance and robustness of hop and malt flavors; and very smooth to drink. A very enjoyable offering.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Red/amber pour with a thick off white head. Malty, caramel aroma, not much else. Taste is pretty heavy on the caramel, sweet, malty, with a little floral taste and fairly low bitterness. It’s pleasant and very, very drinkable but not too complicated
