3.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Aroma is that of grass and earth. Appears as a dark cloudy amber with nearly no foam. Tastes like it smells; grassy and earthy. Very unique flavor that doesn’t let you forget about it even after you’ve swallowed. A good beer poured from a 7 oz bottle bought on clearance. Excellent choice but not worth paying much more than $2.

Hazy amber-brown body with an off-white head. Aroma of fresh hops, with some honey and caramalts. Heavily bitter, lightly sweet flavour. Powdery dry mouthfeel with some alcoholic touches. Very refreshing. Excellent one.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Sampled from a 7oz shorty bottle into a nonic pint glass, thanks gregwilsonstl. It poured a mostly clear amber color with weak beige head, no lace. Very hoppy aroma: grapefruit and other citrus rind, flowery, earthy, and malty underneath. High-gravity but neutral fermentation, lacking any fruity ale complexity, typical of Rogue. Tasted of strong caramel malt backbone with equally strong bittering and flavor hops, not much else. Not sure what they were going for here, but they cranked it to 11 as usual. Just kinda boring this time.

Dark brown. Nice head. Quite bitter, but not overwhelming. Very rich. There is nothing to this except for bitterness.

On tap @ Chuck’s 85th. Pours cloudy amber with thin lingering head. Aroma is thin, faint hop notes. Taste is sweet caramel malt with rich smooth body. A hint of hops on the finish. Pretty good for the style, but lacking in hops for my taste.

750ml ceramic swingtop bottle pours a hazy golden color with a 2 finger white head that settles to reveal some nice lacing on the glass. Aroma is light caramel with some citrus and earthy notes. Taste is a caramel malty sweetness with a generous citrus and earthy hop bitterness. Medium bodied with some nice carbonation leaving a pleasant feeling on the palate. A very robust ESB that is very tasty and highly recommended.
