Nice clear yellow-orange with a white head. Lightly fruity aroma with malt. Flavor is malty and full-bodied. Finishes malty with a strong hop-bitterness. Tastes like a sticke-bier.

Too damn sweet and fruity. A good attempt, but maybe "Ale" is not the best way to label this beer...

Bock? Ale? Damn Good! Lightly malty, slightly floral nose; rich, malty sweet, yet hoppy, and quickly bitter aftertaste- phenominal balance; MUCH better on tap than bottled. (tap rating)

I don't know, I was really disappointed with this particular Rogue selection. Not very good at all... Taste really let me down, slightly citrus-y with a sprinkle of mediocrity.

Pours copper, head quickly recedes. Aroma is malty and nutty, slight hint of citrus hops. Nothing overly exciting in the flavor department, I don't like is as much as I used to.

UPDATED: SEP 13, 2004 re-rate 5/11/04 bottle, 12 oz. Almost clear amber/copper w straw head that could have lasted longer, minimal lace, good carbonation. Nose is of light caramel malt, & a trace of green apple w moderate hops. Flavor is nice, medium bodied, plentifull light to medium roasted malt. Pleasantly semi dry & bitter, moderate hops w a slightly fruit flavor. Not too sweet, but has lots of malty creaminess. Lacks the pizzaz of the higher priced brews but is a good quality choice for everyday beer, goes well with food. Add on 7/14/04: Had a more noticible medium roasted amber malt flavor with a pleasant spiciness this time. Semi-cloudy w a fair bit of sediment in the bottle. The head held up well this time. 8/16/04: It is a bit sweet with the slightest taste of alcohol.

Wonderful deep rich color. Nice full tasting beer. A terrific beer anytime. Great on the bitter side.

Smells of hazelnut, honey, and maple syrup with hops on top. Deep brown color. Taste is deep sweet malts with a nice hop finish. Yummy!

Nice dark golden body with a small, bubbly, white head. Very fruity with hints of nuts and malt. This is a sweet and flavorful ale that goes down easy.
