Poured a cloudy copper/orange with a decent creamy head. The nose was piney and earthy with a slight touch of honey. The taste was piney/citrus hop in the forefront and easy honey syrup malts in the rear. I was expecting a honey/cream ale and got a pale ale. And not a bad one at that !

This brew pours bronze with a huge white head. The aroma starts with a light hope presence and just a hint of honeysuckle. Very pleasant aroma. The palate is medium to full for the style. Not a ton of overpowering flavor (suprising from rogue), but rather a well balanced and interesting taste. The flavors are light honeysuckle, grass, and hops in the middle. Clean finish and very refreshing.

Smeared medium darkened gold. Small puffy cap of white froth sits briefly before shrinking down to leave its always present boken skim and thin collar. Lacing is minimal is thin strings and some tiny spotting. Aroma is dry, pale, and bready with an herbal-esk grass tone. Pilsner-type Munich malts and hops make it unique through and through and its a favorably medium in strength as it doesn’t take much wiffing to grab the nose. Pilsner-like taste too. A sense a theme here; the Munich malts are forward and set with a dry, pale, bready quickness. A breeze of honey sweetness creeps through just past midway along with a tiny bit of hops. Gradually gets less pale and dry as in grows into the finish. Adding more intertwined sweetness build up to help balance out the finish. The finish is tender and medium in length. Quite subtle with soem dry yeasty woodish notes floating around in there too. Feel is solid within a medium body and a lower carbonation. When warm that is. The warmer the better for this to have in a glass then cold. Let it sit a good while then imbibe. Much more subtle and tender when wamed up a bit. Smooth and easy with just enough body, flavor, and interest to keep it, well... interesting.

patrick767 (3571) - fort wayne, Indiana, USA - SEP 24, 2006
tap - Pours golden and smells sweet. The flavor is mostly malt as I expected with a touch of honey. The body is too thin and overall it’s too light for my tastes, but not bad for what it is.

A light golden cream ale. Simply put as having a full honey aroma and slight in the finish. Very refreshing beer.

Draught at Rogue Ales Public House in San Francisco, CA. Hazy yellow color with white head that laced the glass. Grainy, fruity aroma and flavor. Slightly sweet with a distinct touch of honey.
