OlivierMTL (711) - Quebec, - OCT 9, 2005
Couleur caramel, abondante mousse beige pale diminuant rapidement. Arômes de caramel, de sucre brun et de vieux carton mouillé. Les flaveurs sucrées et cartonnées indiquent définitivement un breuvage passé son temps de gloire, les houblons sont pratiquement disparus. Corps très atténué, plutôt mince. Trop tard !

Cybercat (3384) - Georgia, USA - NOV 11, 2011
Comes out of the tap a hazy honey golden with a fluffy off-white head. Aroma has a strong honey-sweet overtone of honey with a malty core and a hoppy hint. Flavor is mainly honey with a malty note and a whisper of butterscotch. Smooth texture is fairly thick and subtly tingly. Not Rogue’s best, but worthy of a try!

MadIndian (2414) - Levittown, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 12, 2011
Grassier than I expected. Hazy amber pour with a grass and sweet malt aroma. Hoppy taste with hints of candy and spices. Good.

cmonster (979) - Portland, Oregon, USA - DEC 13, 2010
Draft sample. Hazy orange with amber hues. No head. Soft nose has just a hint of citrus. Big grapefruity flavor. Medium body, oily texture. Prickly hops on the palate followed by a long citrusy bitter and dry finish. Good beer. Hop heavy.

joechristenson (147) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - JUN 16, 2010
On tap at the Happy Gnome, Saint Paul, MN. This beer had the least head compared to the other lighter brews in the flight ("OREgasmic ale" and "Dead Guy"). More amber than honey with some orange hues in there. Really smooth! Very little carbonation -- just a little prick -- but light nonetheless -- this has the refreshing quality missing from the "Oregasmic ale." Nice hops underlying a dominant grassy/floral hops. Aroma is subdued with some odd qualities I can’t suss out. I really like this! Very creamy head but the body is light -- what a fantastic combination! I think I caught some marsh aroma (perhaps that’s what I couldn’t suss out earlier). Bitter on the finish -- some butterscotch, too. Great summer beer.

ChainGangGuy (4391) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - JUN 1, 2010
Appearance: Clear, darkened copper body with a half inch-high, frothy, white head with admirable retention. Smell: Opens with citrusy hops, notes of floral-scented hand soap, and backed by delicately sweetish toffee-brushed biscuits. Taste: Pale malts with some additional hints of toasted biscuits and toffee. Medium level of clean malt sweetness. The taste, as is the case with the majority of Rogue products, is centered around the hops. Largely tasting of white grapefruit but also some underlying earthy, floral tones to it as well. Moderate bitterness. Finish is drying and bittersweet. Mouthfeel: Medium-plus body. Medium carbonation. Modest creaminess to the mouthfeel. Drinkability: A good, smooth beer that remains fairly drinkable considering the ABV percentage. Pleasant choice to close out a round of Team Trivia at Summits.

madmitch76 (15309) - , Essex, ENGLAND - NOV 29, 2009
8th August 2008. On tap at GBBF. Cloudy brown ale. Pretty hoppy but also smooth with lots of soft malt. Seems more of an IPA to me but what do I know?

Pwn3d (1961) - Manhattan, New York, USA - OCT 22, 2009
On tap at rattle n hum. A both musty and earth offering with sweet orange and strawberry notes. Has some barley wine characteristics but mantains more of a more fluffy mouthfeel.

Leighton (11348) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 21, 2009
Draft at Rattle n Hum. Poured a hazy orange with a medium white head. Hoppy aroma with notes of citrus and flowers. Strong flavor with nice malt character and hop backbone. Filling and on the tail the alcohol warms. A nice beer.
