3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Darker brown in colour with a medium creamy head that leaves a good amount of lacing on the glass. Malty and yeasty nose, hops and some malts in the taste. Medium strength bitter as the taste progresses.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
The aroma is sweet and malty with notes of yeast. The color is a clear amber or red and it has a small collapsing head. The flavor is sweet and malty with notes of oranges and yeast. An OK beer - but nothing special. A had much higher hopes for this one - coming from Rogue.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
This is a very drinkable beer that is super-smooth. Nice hazy orange-amber body with a decent head in a pint glass. The head leaves a faint lace. Moderate aroma that is not overpowering, very enticing. Floral hops are noticable, as well a slight malt sweetness. The taste is clean and much lighter than I was expecting. Very well balanced with a good, bitter finish.

UPDATED: MAR 8, 2007 Poured a cloudy amber in color, thin head, some lacing. Aroma was mildy hoppy with perhaps a touch of honey. Flavor was smooth and drinkable; a hoppy, honied sweetness with a slight bitter undertone and a slight sour aftertaste. Not bad.

pours a thick amber head that lasts forever but oh my goodness, this beer is hoppy. i'm starting to enjoy the more hoppy beers but this is still out of my league. however, it still is better than the other crap out there.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
This beer is a pleasing copper/ amber color with a bit of chill haze to it. It pours with a frothy cream to tan colored head. The main aroma is one of a malty biscuit, it is accompanied by a sweet hoppiness. This beer is very malty tasting, and lightly sweet. I must say this is a great session beer, lots of flavor yet it seems to be relatively light. A beer for when you aren't up to being assaulted by hop varieties and dense maltiness. This beer finishes with a balancing bitterness that counterpoints the wonderful mixture of sweet maltiness and hop flavors that are at the front part of this beer. This beer is what I wish Fat Tire was, I know it is a bit hypocritical, but I can still wish.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
This beer has a darker color, and very little head when poured. The flavor is bitter, but it finishes with a pleasant maltiness. All in all it is a decent drink.

Dark ale with a light head. The aroma is strong and hopped, and the flavour is much the same, dry and hopped (nice). Overall a good ale.

Draft: Nice and dry, with a golden to brown honey color. A good malty and some what yeasty brew. Typical Rogue nose and palate. Over all pretty good.
