Pigfoot (2268) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - APR 21, 2004
Appearnace: deep, dark reddish, nearly copper hue, and an impressive, fluming creamy tan head atop, softly crumbling down. Aroma: terrifically sweet, creamy, nutty, with a hint of spice. Wonderfully filling mouthfeel, a sense of flooding and washing over the mouth, tongue, and all applicable areas. Good'n' malty, but very little hop presence. Delicious, sweet, giving and warm texture. Long, sweet, happy finish. A refreshing occurence of flavor occurs again and again, a constant supply of tastiness, with a nice emergence of fruit in the middle. Hops show up a little late on the palate and are well-appreciated. One of the better tasting Red Ales I've ever drunk and down, and I'm sure I'll revisit it again, and again. Quite a nice little beer! (The 22oz. serving size in the typically handsome Rogue bottle was a bit short, I felt. Maybe Magnums are in order?)

JoeMcPhee (8622) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - APR 19, 2004
Ruby red to amber colour with a large rocky tan-coloured head and some nice lacing. Rich caramel malt aroma with faint woodsy and piney notes. Very full bodied with a nice balance. Less sweet than the aroma seemed to indicate. Nice maltiness followed by grapefruit and pine hops. Long slightly bitter finish with faint astringency of black pepper. This is a great brew.

ElGaucho (2240) - Minnetonka, Minnesota, USA - APR 18, 2004
Sweet, caramelly malt aroma with a suggestion of piney hops. Fresh. Cloudy red amber in color with large off-white rootbeer float-like head. Excellent lace. Mostly malty in flavor. Not very sweet. Some peppery, piney hops (44 IBUs). Needs to be sweeter to play off the bitterness better. I like the crispy hop mouthfeel. It's what's keeping this interesting. Could be a session brew for hopheads. Improves as it wards. Becomes doughy and a little sweeter as it warms. A nice brew.

bu11zeye (11971) - Frisco (Dallas), Texas, USA - APR 15, 2004
(Bottle) Pours an amber color with a medium-sized off-white foamy head. Creamy palate. Good hops and citrus flavor.

Braudog (5903) - Traveling the USA, Missouri, USA - APR 14, 2004
No kidding, this is really (bright) red, with a toffee head. Pleasant light caramel aroma. Sweet flourish up front, settling into malty-caramel hoppy goodness. Very good.

elnadeau (786) - Laguna Niguel, California, USA - APR 13, 2004
Nice deep amber-red color, decent sized head. Aroma of malt & citrus. A drinkable amber with a bit more body than some, fairly well balanced with a good hops profile in the finish. Overall pretty good, could use some more character of it's own but I would entertain a repeat encounter.

Nexxus (261) - Apple Valley, Minnesota, USA - APR 10, 2004
Gorgeous clear deep ruby with a large diminishing khaki head. Nice aroma of roast, toasted bread, caramel, plum, grapefruit and pine. Medium watery body with a moderate amount of carbonation. Woody/earthy flavor of roast, caramel, pine, grapefruit, and plum with a hint of pepper. Good, but not great.

Hildigöltur (5103) - København, DENMARK - APR 3, 2004
UPDATED: DEC 23, 2007 Dark reddish coloured. Very fruity aroma and flavour. Quite sweet and malty with some bitterness in the rather short finish. Slightly thin.

axilla (962) - New Providence, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 29, 2004
Floral/piney hop nose with some hints of a carmel like sweetness. Average looking dark brown/red brew with a tan head. Well balanced sweet carmel malts and citusy hop flavor. pretty good amber.

Nuffield (3717) - Roseville, Minnesota, USA - MAR 16, 2004
Slightly hazy red/dark copper color with a ring of head. Curious vegetal flavors. Dry, frothy. Nowhere near as nice as the sandwich aroma coming from the guy next to me at the bar. Hop undertones, though of no great consequence to my thinking on this. (on tap at Rogue Ales Public House, Portland)
