2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Super clear yellow with a really carbonated head. Dank aroma of ’noble hops’ and sweet corn but does have a flowery hoppy aroma as well. Metallic bitterness mixed with a sweeter finish and classic pilsner flavour. Rogue beers are never cheap wherever I have traveled to but i don’t know why people would pay decent money for a light lager like this. boring.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
650ml bottle. Pours a lightly hazed yellow with below average white head that laces out quickly and leaves a thin ring. A lot of grain with the faintest wisp of something hoppy. I want to say there’s something chocolaty about the nose...Remarkably nondescript stuff on the palate. mostly grain with that same chocolaty edge and a faint hint of lemon. Boring.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
A thin light head, with a great golden color and a malty aroma. Beer has very subtle hops overtones, with a mild body. Overall, very light taste. It’s a great option for powering down beers, and having some class while doing it.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
650 ml bottle from and shared with Albatross. Pours a golden, sediment-filled straw with a thin, yet long-lasting white head. Aroma is pils malt. Flavor is wheat flour, butter, cereals, some fruits, yeast, white bread...and, dare I say, potatoes ? (or is it just the name influencing me?)
Finish is earthy and herbal hops. Medium body, soft mouthfeel, weak to average carbonation. Very solid lager.

On draught at rogue airport - slightly cloudy gold. Small foamy head. Nose of faint citrus - really have to sniff hard to even find a smell. Taste of hint of lemon, some pine. Not much flavor.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Draft. Yellow body, clear. Frothy white head, diminishing. Aroma of toasted grain and herbal hops. Note of pepper. The flavor is moderately sweet and lightly bitter. It finishes lightly sweet and lightly to moderately bitter. Light to medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation. Light taste of grain, biscuit and herbal hops. Light bitterness lingers into the finish. Fairly clean and crisp. Inoffensive, but not much flavor.

1.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Tap at Penn social in DC. Clear straw pour. No head. Bubbles. Nose is lemon, cinnamon, fruit cake. Taste is essentially Bud Light - seltzer, metal, hydrogen peroxide. Palate is extremely weak to non existent. Not sure why this even exists. Bad.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Appearance: clear medium gold, one finer of bright white head, minimal lacing. Aroma: toasted white bread, fresh-cut grass, a bit of honeysuckle and lemon. Taste: ritz crackers, a bit of white pepper, lemongrass, and a bit of floral honey. Finish: crisp, with lingering white bread/cracker flavors, and a surprising hint of green apple. Notes: Really enjoyed this one. Clearly a top-shelf lager.
