Cloudy in appearance. Copper-colored with a frothy white head. Lacing is below average. Aroma consist of nut, bread and a citrus follow. Light-bodied beer with little to no carbonation. Thin texture almost watery. The finish is abrupt. The taste is dry. This beer was not very exciting. It taste like a cheap pale ale.

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
From a guy’s BEARD? Too wild! I love it! Pours a beautiful, slightly hazy golden with a fairly thick and fluffy buff head. Aroma is mainly yeasty - no beard smell, thankfully ;) - with a fruity underpinning and a hint of fresh malt. Mouth-filling flavor pleases with fruity, yeasty, woody and malt notes. Finish is yeasty with a hint of hoppy bitterness, while texture is firm and somewhat fizzy. OK, what’s next for Rogue?

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Poured from tap to glass. Golden/Orange with nice white head. Aroma is malt-based with slightly subtle farmhouse essences of grass and pepper. Medium hopped with decent bitterness. Light bodied mouthfeel with good carbonation. Light malt up front with hop bittering following. Finishes with a slight CO2 sharpness and light esters. Overall, a pretty average ale but worth the novelty knowing that I’ve consumed a beer fermented from wild yeast in John’s beard.

Vaguely belgian aroma - powdery, pale lager in there too. Clear. Big stiff head, scary Duck Dynasty type on the painted bomber label. Mildly fruity, lightly sweet. Nothing special, but pretty well balanced. Thx to PorterPounder for splitting his bomber with me.
