Amber with a lasting white head. Light malt aroma, apple, cinnamon. Some sweetness in the flavour, grapefruit tartness, and (excuse me) a brutal bitterness at the end. Leaves no doubt that this is an American bitter and not an English one, but that’s not necessarily a bad thing.

en kombi af ESB og IPA synes jeg. Jeg kan nu bedre lide de to ting hver for sig. Dufter meget af blomster og har en smuk ravfarve. Smagen er både maltet og bitter, dog uden lang eftersmag. Delt med min søde kæreste Theis.

Theis (15149) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JUN 6, 2006
Amber colour, small white head. Strong smell of flowery hops, like a trip to a cornfield next to a field with wild flowers. The taste has some sweet mallts, almost honey. It finished with some dry bitter hops. Lovely. But not at all harsh.

turbothy (1141) - Bonn, GERMANY - JUN 4, 2006
Pours a very handsome amber colour with a dense foam. Aroma is hoppy. Flavour is lacking edge, too mellow for how I think a bitter should be.

From a distinctive 22 oz. Rogue brown bomber bottle with info and a blurb on the right side of bottle, sampled in a Rogue pint glass. Made a good appearance, poured a cloudy orangey copper with a fluffly white head that settled into a thin lacing, moderate carbonation overall. Had a piney and orange peel rind nose with a faint caramelized maltiness and, of course, the distinctive Pacman yeastiness. A crisp, hop coarse on the tongue and creamy smooth full bodied mouth feel, very good drinkability. Very tasty, sweet piney mixed with orange rind, a smooth biiterness with a touch of roughness, some oiliness as well, a sweet caramelized maltiness that starts to balance the taste in the middle along with a dryish Pacman flavor and an oily and sweet malty finish with the hop flavor lingering in the palate. An excellent ESB from Rogue, one of my favorite brewers, tasty with a smooth, balanced bitterness and distinctive Rogue flavors, a must try.

UPDATED: SEP 4, 2006 THIS is what Rogue is really about and brings to fullness the base behind the Rogue’s I’ve had. Surprisingly, this one wasn’t as bitter as I (a non PA/IPA guy) was expecting from a brewery that has freely used hops in other selections. The color was light and the head bursted out of the bottle upon opening. Definite citrus and piney aromas and flavor. Not a bad beer, especially if you like bitter / hoppy brews. Re-rate, 9/06, as a special bottling, "Rogue Maxs Taphouse 20th Anniversary Bitter Ale," and the experience was comparable, some floral notes in the aroma, and citrus hops were most dominant in the flavor. Pretty close to an IPA if you ask me.

jcwattsrugger (12185) - Florida and, New Jersey, USA - MAY 31, 2006
22 oz bottle-pours a ceamy offwhite head that laces with cloudy orange/copper color. Aroma is crisp hops. Taste is far from just crisp hops. It’s also smokey caramel malt that doesn’t show up in the aroma, but also doesn’t come across as that well balanced either. Good carbonation. Good, but not great beer.
