It has light citris notes, it seems to be missing something in the flavor though (needs a little extrta kick for me) The color is a rather light amber.

On tap at Rogue Public House in Portland, Oregon on 2/12/05. Very appealing appearance and inviting aroma. Sweet, malty, spicy and maybe even fruity at times. Full, rounded palate that trails off deliciously. I ended up buying a case (on sale) and carrying it over a mile home. Maybe my new favorite evening beer.

Pours a clear mahogany with a full tan head. Faint aroma of caramel and, for some reason, blueberries. Flavor of caramel and some herbal notes, some smokiness, a bit of alcohol as well. Palate is quite thin. Average.

Pours amber/red with thin dissipating head. Aroma is mild and slight grass and carmel and grass notes. Flavor is sweet alcohol, reminds me of a malt liquor. Finish is sweet. Nice medium body.

Interesting...a bock made with ale yeast. Nice dark amber, small cararmel colored head. Smooth body. Sweet taste but with some diacetyl, might be an old bottle. But it is one sweet bottle. I gave it to my hippie friend who has a bunch of blacklights.

Wow! I think that I have found my favorite session beer. Some of you may disagree, but what a full sexy head and enticing malty aroma in my Guinness Draft glass. Smooth and great to look at. I love this beer. Too bad it’s hard to get here in Western Wisconsin.

Malty, rich, and hearty. This beer will sneak up on you and knock you out. A good bock by the people at Rogue.

Amber ale trying to be a bock. It’s fine. Nothing special. Roasty finish separates it from other American Ambers I’ve had. Not worth the price, but if it’s a domestic night in a bar, give it a shot.
