GeneralGao (3614) - Iowa City, Iowa, USA - AUG 2, 2006
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.

Golden color with slight haze and small white head. Grainy malt and slight sweet citrus aroma. The taste has a nice grain malt flavor throughout the taste profile. There is also a sugar based creaminess midway that approaches a cream soda flavor. There is a light hop bitterness as well.

First cream ale for me. It was interesting enough. Hazy orange gold with a small white head. Oddly indeterminate aroma. I wouldn’t have said cream and honey if I hadn’t read the label. Same with the flavour: oily mouthfeel that I suppose did have hints of creaminess; the rest was grassy with a pleasant dry finish. Overall quite good.

The aroma has citrus, basement smells, butter, and light honey; basically it’s funky. The appearance is orange/gold with brown particles floating in the head. The flavor has honey, butter, malt, and some hop bitterness. The palate is average. This is not my favorite Rogue.

This one didn’t stand out, but I probably shouldn’t have had it within 20mins of the DFH 120 DIPA. Either way, not much there in appearance (somewhat hazy yellow, slight orange), aroma, or flavor (I picked up the honey). Mouthfeel was dry and very light. Not enough umph in this one.

Suttree (5225) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - MAY 19, 2006
Cloudy Orangey brown, with virtually no head. Floral, honeyish aroma, with notes of applesauce and vanilla. Some hop flavor, then an understated honey flavor. Tasty, would make a good first beer of the evening.

harlequinn (2744) - Tacoma, Washington, USA - APR 14, 2006
There is not much else to say about this that the commercial description does not speak of. A very smooth and malty cream ale, with obvious hints of sweet flowers and honey. A rich maltiness, that is very smooth and creamy, this is very easy to drink.
Earlier Rating: 7/23/2003 Total Score: 2.9
Malts and honey as an afterthough and slightly in the aftertaste. Not very reminiscent of a cream ale and my first disappointment from Rogue.

fiulijn (15060) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 12, 2006
Cloudy golden color. Malt aroma. Malt and wet malt taste, roasted malt, quite strong ending bitterness. Honey?

jercraigs (8013) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - APR 11, 2006
Bottle. Slightly hazy golden body with a moderate creamy white head. Sort of an odd aroma, fruity sort of funky vegetal notes underneath. Flavour is lightly malty with minute amounts of honey. Pale malts. Average Palate. Ok but a bit dull overall.

harrisoni (14020) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - APR 10, 2006
65cl bottle from Utobeer. Not sure what I expected this to be. Golden with thin off beige head. Distinctive Rogue hop aroma. Citric. Bit more toffee whisky on aroma. OK in mouth. Nice toffee/hop finish. Sweetish in mouth, Still attack of hops on end. Fine, but after the hop and toffee it doesn’t go anywhere
