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 Rogueís 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 Rogueís six Public Houses.

Cable (286) - SE, Oklahoma, USA - JUN 15, 2006
Sampled on draft at Rogue Public House, Portland. Pours slightly cloudy gold with a lasting white head and nice lacing. Aroma is mild and floral. Itís flavor is herbal/medicinal with some honey. Quite spicy. Medium bodied and moderately carbonated. Too strange to be a regular drinker but worth trying.

JorisPPattyn (7885) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - APR 20, 2006
Draught, brewed at Issaquah Golden beer with greenish shine, and some white rim. Definitely chamomille nose, obvious but not overpowering, rather nice & inviting, honeyish. Gives a very strange - again honeyish - chamomille flavour. Very acceptable, spicey character. Light, springtime-like palate, if you catch my drift. Some slickness. Nice, original beer.

Lubiere (9877) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 14, 2006
Hazy light gold with no head. Overwhelming chamomille infusion with honey, medicinal in nature. Hoppy cold chamomille tea, fruity esters, like peach, with a bizarre mouthfeel, didnt care for it much. On tap at Rogue Ales Public House, SF, August 2005.

harlequinn (2744) - Tacoma, Washington, USA - JAN 6, 2006
I really did not expect to like this one, and it is still not my favorite but it is very well made. A very big tea component, almost jasmine and saffron like. There is some nice honey in the malt and very light finish. Not bad.

AlchemistZ (493) - Kalamazoo, Michigan, USA - DEC 14, 2005
An amber honey color, not dense looking, with an odd-colored, peachy, thin, fat-bubbled head. Aroma is very tea-like and the chamomile stands out. The malt aroma is honey-like. Very light on the palate but the chamomile, tea, and honey with peach-like notes show well then dissappear quickly and absolutely with just a touch of bitterness.

Gorbalev (2916) - Ontario, CANADA - NOV 29, 2005
On tap, Rogue Pub, San Francisco. Hazy Yellow, no head at all. Nice chamomile aroma. Wonderful herbal tea taste - it doesnít look all that great, but it is. Light carbonation - could use just a little more. Excellent, refreshing, and tasty.

Enniskillen (2029) - Salinas, California, USA - JUN 23, 2005
Aroma really is chamomile, with cactus peach, and that wood that pencils use. Strangest tasting beer Iíve ever taste, and Iím not sure if thatís bad or good. Other tastes besides chomomile are hard to seperate.

mutant (854) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - MAY 26, 2005
2005 AIBA Sample. Cloudy yellow with small head. Ok this is going to sound crazy but the main aroma and flavour was coconut. Itís a subtle presence, a light taste but thatís what I felt. Actually quite good.

Oakes (12361) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 10, 2005
Hazy yellow-amber colour. Slightly flowery aroma with clean malts backing it up. Light character with soft chamomile notes and biscuity pale malts in the background.

frylock (1135) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - FEB 12, 2005
Sampled at Rogueís Eugene City Brewery: Pale yellow with a small white head. Interesting aroma, oranges, chamomile, lotion? Light bitterness, some lemon and herbal chamomile notes. Soft mouthfeel. Very unique brew.
