3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Starts off better than it finishes, but still a very high quality brew. Very dark red with a medium lasting head; aroma is of apricots and honey with a heady dose of hops; wonderful! Flavor also big with the apricots, along with plum and vanilla; soft and smooth, but at the end it really hits you with the hops and a dry finish that seemed a bit too much of a contrast to the soft fruitiness preceding. Not Rogue’s best, but well worth trying, patriot.

4.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Can to pint glass. This is an old favorite, just realized I’ve never formally rated it.
Appearence: Opaque toasty light Orange brown. Small but lasting lacey head.
Aroma is grass, light barley, lighter hops.
Taste is malty, touch of ash, touch of lemon, touch of hops. Very smooth and easy drinking.
Palate is Medium carbonation. Clean. Lasting head gives it a slight creamyness that fades quickly.
A great standby and go to beer for all seasons.

Bevuta pasteggiando, mi ha fatto una buona impressione, bell’ambrato senza schiuma, al naso tostato, e anche in bocca il tostato del malto è in evidenza.

Amber Ale com malte mais tostado. Um pouco de defumado? Fácil de beber, mas sem nenhum atrativo tanto no aroma quanto no sabor.

Ambra carico, schiuma beige evanescente. Aroma di malto, sentori tostati. Al palato ancora il malto è bilanciato dall’amaro del luppolo. Buona carbonazione, corpo medio.
