COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Chamomellow is an herbal golden ale infused with chamomile, which provides an enticing floral aroma. Chamomile is one of the oldest garden herbs used by ancient Egyptians and other cultures to battle illness, promote calm and relieve anxiety, hence the name Chamomellow. Dedicated to Caleb McLoughlin, a revolutionary brewer who created this elixir at Rogue’s Issaquah Brewhouse and won a Gold medal in the Herbs & Spice category at the 2003 Great American Beer Festival.

Chamemollow is created from Northwest Harrington and Klages, and Maier Munich Malts (18% speciality grains, .19 lbs grain per bottle). Kent Golding and Cascade hops, and infused with Chamomile. Available in a limited edition 22-ounce bottles (originally as Test Batch 1 - Gold Medal Series), and on draft at Rogue’s six Public Houses.

On tap at Rogue Ale House in San Francisco. Very interesting beer, hazy in color, unique aroma and unique taste. Not enough of an intense flavor for me.

Poured a chamomile yellow (imagine that!) with no head. Nose of the chamomile flower and pale malts. Decent beer. Might even settle ones stomach.

Draft at Eugene City Brewpub. Labeled as Eugene City Chamomallow. Clear golden color with not much head. Subtle fruit and floral aromas. Very spicy on the flavor. Some Alcohol too. Not bad.

Pours a cloudy gold with a medium-sized off-white head that laces the glass. The aroma is strong with light malts - rising pastry dough lightly covered with honey. The flavor is also malty but with many interesting nuances: chamomile, flowers, lemon, and what tastes like wheat (though the description does not indicate any wheat used in the brew...). The finish is medium in body and malty and lightly flowery. Overall, a lovely spiced ale.

Sampled this one on draught at the brewpub in Issaquah, WA where this beer is actually brewed. Pours to a hazy, orange color, with a tight, white head, that fades, and a moderate carbonation. The nose on this beer is very interesting, with really good aromas of chamomile tea, fresh baked bread, and light, flowery hop aroma. The palate is firm, with good pale and some light sweet malt flavor. This beer finishes with more good malt character up front, then ends with a very unique, and tasty chamomile tea flavor that lingers. I really enjoyed the tea character in this beer, and you clearly get it in the nose and finish of this beer.

Boring yellow bronze appearance w. crisp head. Light intermingling of hops and flowery herbs in the nose, delightfully spring-like character. Gentle chamomile flavor. Decently balanced brew, fading into a light sour finish.

Tap at Rogue Ales bar in San Francisco. You have to apprecate the experimental effort to put this unique brew out, I found the flavors very interesting and well blended, the overall result quite drinkable.

(22 oz bottle: Obtained 13-Jul-04 in trade, thanks Derek!) I’ve been discussing with Tomme Arthur and my fellow beer geeks what the potential causes might be for why older bottlings of Pizza Port SPF45 has such a strong coconut flavor to them, and one of the theories was the addition of chamomile. So it’s very timely to try this Rogue Chamomellow Ale after it’s seen about 24 months of aging in my cellar. First off, I was worried that 2 years would be far too much for this beer and it would be well along on its downward spiral, but this beer is holding up incredibly well. No oxidation, no stale, dull or off-flavors, no loss of carbonation. The sweet spiciness of chamomile is very bright and while it doesn’t remind me of coconut right off the bat, as the beer warms up, the vague similarity begins to show. Still, not nearly enough to rival the coconut of that SPF 45. The sweet nose smells like spices, reminiscent of nutmeg and cinnamon. Light-medium in body with gentle carbonation. Amber in color, but the near-perfect clarity is surprising given the amount of sludge on the bottom of the bottle. Almost a half an inch of whitish head forms on the pour and gradually settles to a wide ring, leaving a smattering of lace on the glass. Good, but not great.

This is the Closer! Anyone who has had Sleepytime Tea can apprieciate this masterpiece. Aroma of oatmeal cookies and sleepytime. When we stayed at the Bed and Beer, Newport. Chris always offered us a quart to go. Nice finisher...goodnight.

Draught at Rogue Ales Public House in San Francisco, CA. Slightly hazy, orange color. White head that laced the glass. Smells of cooked vegetables and butterscotch. Flavors were similarly unique with hints of cinnamon, pumpkin, and malty caramel. Unusual aromas and flavors that worked well together. Soomth mouth feel. Very soothing.
