egajdzis (5515) - Pennsburg, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 2, 2007
Poured a lightly hazy, amber color with a medium sized, off white head that left light lacing on the glass. Aroma of toffee, light caramel, toasted dough, citrus, and a light, floral hoppiness. Taste was malty, toffee, more dough, with some pine, light citrus, and a bit of alcohol in the finish.

tronraner (2459) - Walland, Tennessee, USA - FEB 1, 2007
Draught. Pours cloudy rust color with creamy off-white head. The aroma is lemon bread, slight alcohol, and baking spices. The flavor is cream, saltines, some stray earthy hops (especially toward the finish). The aftertaste is zesty. Smooth drinkin’ overall, but from a Rogue JLS, I was expecting something much more intense.

Suttree (5424) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - JAN 21, 2007
Clear reddish copper, thin beige head. Big bready aroma, with hints of caramel and black pepper. Smoky, earthy flavors at first, with some bready, toasty notes thrown in. Big sticky, resiny finish. On tap Barley’s Knoxville

Magjayran (1379) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - JAN 18, 2007
Clear amber color with a nice white head. Bitter hops are right up front in the aroma. You get more hints of what must be a combo of Euro and American hops in the taste. The finish is obviously the signature Rogue house flavor. Solid stuff.

TomDecapolis (4607) - Milton, Delaware, USA - JAN 17, 2007
On tap at Capones during their Russian River night tasting. Pours a lightly hazy golden/orange/amber with a smaller off white head. Aroma of caramel, malty, hints of hops and fruity. Flavor was hoppy, dry, light bitterness, some honey?, some hop flavor and of course that Rogue Pac-Man yeast.

hopdog (9588) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 17, 2007
On tap at the Drafting room in Springfield, PA. Poured a deeper orange / amber color with a smaller sized off white head. Aromas of citrus (oranges), caramel and some melons. Tastes of caramel and citrus (had a grapefruit bitter finish). I would have guessed this was an IPA. Nice and hoppy. Lacing left on the glass.

Sammy (9322) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 16, 2007
on tap, at Transit Pizza Plant. Yellow body with soapy head, and neutral aroma, though some alcohol present. Taste notes of yeast, wheat. Decent bitterness, but more on sweet side and on balance than another overhopped beer. Another style bender. Recommended.

NachlamSie (2918) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JAN 11, 2007
Draught. Pours a cloudy, muddy amber with a small whitish head. The nose is dense of toffee & bark and not as hoppy as I’d expect from Rogue. It’s almost creamy, almost dense in the mouth. A bit of apple, oak, sticky pear flavors make up the sweeter notes while a faint hop presence adds a slight bitter, drying finish. The sweetness is full and sugary throughout. The alcohol is more noticeable than I would like from a 7% ale with this density. Overall, the brew is peculiar. It is a really weird medium between big, hefty brew and session beer. It’s just all right.

BückDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - JAN 2, 2007
Draft @ The Front Door in Boise, ID
Poured a dark auburn color with a thick tan head, nice looking at least. The nose is light and hoppy with some pine and caramel malts, a touch of alcohol, but not that much more than you’d expect from something like their brutal bitter. The flavor is balanced; crispy hops dance with the melodramatic melanoidins on a disco floor of ethanol and a so-so body. Finishes toasty, creamy, hmm. More light IPAish to me, the pacmans just kill what might have been a decent beer. Just tastes like a hoppy Rogue beer to me; not that that’s bad, but I was expecting Locker Stockable.

nigos (631) - Ipswich, Suffolk, ENGLAND - JAN 2, 2007
Slightly clouded bright bronze hue with a white creamy head. Citrussy nose with melon, tropical fruit and a hint of honey. Dry crisp, citrussy taste, with a long bitter grapefruit hoppy bite in the finish. Complex and most enjoyable beer with flavour that just keeps coming. Melon, fruits and more.
