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.

Bottle. Medium white fizzy head and fine sized bubbles that completely dissipated. Malty, sweet, honey and spicy aroma. Sweet and spicy flavor. Smooth palate, light bodied with no lacing.

I like chamomile tea, and I REALLY like beer. However, I donít know if I like the two together. This is like the polar opposite of the old Reese peanut butter cup ad-"Two great tastes that go great together." These are two great tastes that should have a restraining order on one another.

BUrunner (92) - Indiana, USA - JUN 5, 2004
A very unique and pleasing herb beer. This ale has a distinct chamomile aroma, like the tea. Pours slightly cloudy golden with a moderate head that fades fairly quickly. Good flavor that accents the chamomile, but lacks depth of hops. Not great, but definately worth a try.

Tap@Rogue Brewery. Really odd, tastes OK though. Definite chamomile tea flavour, but once again lacks depth. I suppose you could argue that at least Rogue are trying new things, this is a bit too clean and polished, as well as being quite different.

Jokes (1453) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAY 24, 2004
Hazy, golden body with almost no head. Interesting floral, fruity nose of spiced, herbal apple cider, wild flowers, light berries and clover honey. The body is light, crisp and clean with virtually no finish. More and more herbal cider in the flavor, complimented by the strong floral chamomile. A really interesting beer with good flavors, a nice aroma and a lot of unique character. Iím glad I tried it, but, needless to say, I left the case at the store.

Innnnnteresting, to say the least. I usually donít like spice beers but this one is quite good. And someone needs to send in a picture of the new bottle. I picked this up at the Rogue Brewery not knowing what chamomile was, but after a sip I thought, "Oh, like the tea!" Pours a nice amber color with a nice head that didnít last long but had lots of carbonation. Scent is (suprise) chamomile. As is the taste. But itís not overpowering at all. Itís funny; the flavor is light and itís well ballanced, but I really canít pick out many other flavors other than to say itís spicy. Palate is pretty full and well-carbonated. Overall this is good and definately worth a try. Iím glad I had it but really donít see myself having any more of them.

Yellow gold color with a white head. Very unique aroma with chamomile, cinnamon, nutmeg, and even some pumpkin aromas. The taste has the same characteristics as the aroma and is sweet with hints of honey. Itís nicely spiced and contains a faint citrus that lingers nicely with the spice.

mardermax (71) - santa cruz, California, USA - MAY 3, 2004
Poured from draft at the Rogue brew pub in san fran- Yellow flowery color, small thin head, smelt of cold chamomile tea, honestly. The taste wasnít flavorly disappointing, tasted just like chamomile tea, honestly. Not really my style, not that hoppy, not that bitter. Interesting experimentation, adn iím into that, it just didnít twist my nipple all that much.

UPDATED: DEC 4, 2004 Updated 12-4-04, this brew wasnít nearly as amazing as i remember it, maybe the tap version is a bit different from the bottled version. This brew was way to light, not much for any malt flavor, the chamomile comes through nice but this brew needs some beer flavor and it was really lacking. Amazing Beer, had it on tap at the rogue brewery. Light in color with small amount of head. Chamomile taste and aroma shine through. A very sweet beer that really won me over even though im not a tea fan. Rogue can pull anything off.

Pigfoot (2268) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - APR 20, 2004
Appearance: clear, pale yellow hue, a head full, creamy and white. Aroma: soft and subtle, sweet, perfumey, sophisticated, with a hint of honey. Extraordinarily smooth, minimal texture, light body, hops may be employed for flavor or aroma, but there's not a touch of bitterness to bother the palate, and the malt is mellow, too. Very tasty, with the sweet tea flavors standing very lightly on top. I can imagine that if I overdose on coffee stouts, it would be handy to have a tea ale to fall back upon! I've heard of tea beers in the UK, and perhaps elsewhere, but this is the first American version I've ever encountered. A very light ale, but true to the taste it wishes to deliver. That's not normally my favorite flavor, but I've got to hand it to them, it works! Once more, give it up for Rogue!
