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.

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!

TChrome (1447) - Bedford, Texas, USA - APR 19, 2004
Pours dark golden with a bit fluffy egg white head that is retained. The aroma is solely and strongly chamomile. Great if you like chamomile. Flavor is likewise chamomile almost exclusively. Very interesting beer and might be good on warm summer days.

raindog (560) - Evansville, Indiana, USA - MAR 11, 2004
Hmmm..light golden. Medium sized,lasting head. Big aroma of chamomile,light malt,and other spice. Light-medium body,not too fizzy,very smooth. Flavors are much the same as aroma,lots of chamomile,and a light,clean,maltiness. Finish is spicy,pacman,and sweet. Nice beer to attempt,but not something I much like. Wife liked it,so if you like chamomile,get you one. Thanks Andre!

lilannie (384) - Adamstown, Maryland, USA - FEB 12, 2004
Aroma: very nice scents of pumpkin spice, chamomile, carmel apples, and gingerbread--like mom's kitchen in the fall. Appearance: light orange/yellow colors Flavor: lots of spices, again with the apple spice and pumpkin flavors. nice pumpkin spice aftertaste. Palate: very smooth, slightly bubbly like a sparkling wine or cider Overall: probably one of my favorite rogue beers. could smell and taste all day!

BückDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - FEB 7, 2004
Clear golden color, a nice bit of head here, a bit on the dark side though. The aroma is lightly sweet with a nice chamomile flavor. Delicious tastes here, finishes like strawberry pancakes with sugar. Balanced finish, easy drinking. I really enjoyed this one.

omnivore (270) - San Francisco, California, USA - DEC 7, 2003
Rogue Nation- San Francisco: Bright yellow in color, lingering head. Very sweet aroma with just a hint of hops. Very delicate flavor with a definate overtone of chamomile. Mild bitter leave.

FlacoAlto (4152) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - NOV 11, 2003
A hazy gold color, pours with a tan head. There is an immediate aroma of chamomile, I detect an aroma of vanilla and an herbal grassiness as well. This is very interesting tasting. This chamomile beer has definite notes of vanilla, which adds a nice roundness to the beer. The base beer is light in flavor and really allows the chamomile to come through. There is an herbal finish to this beer, located where one would normally expect the hop bitterness. I really like this as a concept beer, definitely worth trying if you can get your hands on some. The after taste is where you can really tell that chamomile was used, finishes exactly like a cup of chamomile tea would.

Aubrey (3509) - Bellingham, Washington, USA - NOV 10, 2003
Draft: Thought it said "Chamomellow," but I was inebriated. Deep golden and mostly clear. Sweet, soft, honey-like malts. Flowery, spicy and sweet hops. Light carbonation. Clean. Delicate bitterness. Very strong, flowery aromas; rose-like, dryish finish. Very interesting brew.

joet (2547) - Santa Rosa, California, USA - SEP 1, 2003
lots of tea qualities, to th point where this tastes like a beerified tea, light medium body, lightly creamy, almost all chamomille character, an interesting ode to chamomille and what can be done outside the world of hops

lemonlovr (190) - Orland Park, Illinois, USA - AUG 19, 2003
Experienced this from a bottle at the August 2003 Dallas beer tasting. Nice color - deep cloudy amber is how I described it at the time although the lighting was not very good! Thought the smell was wonderful and we all agreed it was like "Christmas" - gingerbread was the first thing that came to my mind. The flavor, however, did not live up to the aroma for me even though I found it to be smooth.
