"pretty boring for Rogue. Maybe it suffered from having it as part of a sampler tray against much bigger and better beers, but it wasn’t anything special, and a little less than expected."

Transfer from BA review on 3-16-13- Served on tap in a pint glass Appearance – Served a light golden yellow colored brew with a foamy one finger white head. The head has a moderate level of retention, fading slowly over time to leave a light level of lace on the sides of the glass. Smell – The aroma is grainy and citrusy. A biscuit smell is mixed with some lightly toasted malt smells as well as a grapefruit and lemon citrus smell. Taste – The taste begins with some of the grainy flavor that was detected in the nose. There is a light amount of sweeter orange citrus as well as some light caramel taste. Upfront there are some lighter flavors of grapefruit mixed within as well. The grapefruit isn’t huge upfront, but this changes as the flavor advances further. More toward the middle and the end of the taste, a somewhat sour lemon and grapefruit hop flavor comes to the tongue. These give the brew a rather bitter and sour taste. At the very end a grassy flavor joins the mix leaving a rather odd sour but grainy and grass flavor to linger on the tongue. Mouthfeel – The body of the beer on the average side in terms of its creaminess and thickness as well as rather average in carbonation. A bit more carbonation and a slightly thinner body may have suited better the sour flavors of the brew, but overall the feel was pretty decent. Overall – I was not expecting the tastes that were in this beer. Although it is not one I think I would frequent, it has a relatively interesting citrus and sour flavor that make this one a try.

Pours a gorgeous golden color with a crisp white head. Aroma is bread, light yeast, and a slightly floral note. Taste is bread, earthy, grass, cereal. Overall very drinkable, not a big beer but the style isn’t supposed to be.

chinchill (2148) - South Carolina, USA - JUL 22, 2014
Poured from a 22 oz. bottle into a pint glass. Appearance: Pours lright yellow-gold with plenty of rising bubbles. The white head is good sized and durable, slowly fading into a thin top layer. Leaves decent lacing. Smell: Some off or unattractive notes from Euro hops. Taste: Better than what the smell hints at, this is a relatively robust and earthy lager. Mildly bitter, lightly hoppy finish and aftertaste. Mouthfeel: Light to medium bodied with a moderate-high amount of spft carbonation. Crisp and smooth. Overall: Not a strong style and one of the least attractive offerings from Rogue. Undated bottle is probably past its prime.

Bulk_Carrier (2281) - Juneau, Alaska, USA - JUL 10, 2014
At Hangar on the wharf. Bottle. The appearance was a nice looking hazy golden yellow with a soft carbonation rising into a one finger white foamy head that dissipated within less than a minute leaving some neatly coated looking lacing. The smell definitely had the German pilsener malts making up the majority of the aroma but still letting in an adequate amount of sweet bread. The taste was mainly the same with a decent quick crisp sweet finish. On the palate, this one sat about a light on the body with a pretty good sessionability about it. The carbonation was good for the style and pretty good to me. Overall, I say this was a pretty good premium beer I’d have again.
