3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
650ml Bottle. Copper coloured with pale, creamy head. Malty aroma, robust flavour. Malty and a hint of nutiness. A good dose of hops, but not as much as most IPAs. Fairly sweet, possibly caramel, flavour.
Good, my first Rogue brew, and certainly not my last.

Nice amber color, solid head from bottle pour. Aromas of sweet malt. Flavor was a good balance between the hops and malt.

I’ve not had many of the Western hoppy brews so I decided to give this one a shot. WOW!! I think that I found myself a great summer brew. The hops were full but not as over the edge like their Santa Ale. Really a great balance. Touch of fruit and a slightly bitter finish. I’ll have to pick some more up the next time I’m doing pizza. YUM!!

UPDATED: AUG 17, 2005 I really liked this stuff, which was weird because Rogue’s beers are usually too over-the-top for me. This was a mild tasting ale that went down quite good and didn’t seem too high in alcohol.

redish brown hue, very light head, slight sweetness at first, hoppy,ends w/ a bitter taste, a good beer, but can’t drink to much of it, probably tastes better on tap, next time...

Brownish amber color, malty aroma, very tasty beer imo, with hints of malts and a little sweentess, it’s a very nice beer to relax to.

A nice amber color. Not a strong aroma, but what is there is sweet and hints to the malt side. I can taste hops in there, but it is still malty. Not bad at all.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Cloudy amber brown. Sweet malt aroma. Taste is pretty hoppy with some possible citrus sweetness. Lively carbonation. This stuff seems to be all over the place where I live, so I find it to be quite good for a rather common beer.
