lemmyslender (2) - Ohio, USA - AUG 8, 2013 does not count
Light amber, lots of head, medium carbonation, not really skunky, but a little off taste wise

Pretty good. Light in color, and easily drinkable. Not too strong, so you could get away with drinking a few.

floydslip (189) - Washington DC, USA - JUN 16, 2013
Pale, somewhat cloudy gold colored beer with a foamy white head that I guarantee will still be in the glass long after the beer has been scarfed. Nose is virtually non-existent with perhaps a hint of citrus, but so light as to be nothing noteworthy at all. However, the taste is ridiculously delicious. It has a bracing medium bitterness initially that develops into a crisp green apple-like tartness that balances perfectly. This fits so well with the perky effervescence to make an incredibly refreshing summer beer. I finished mine so quickly I was disappointed I didn’t have another bottle on hand.

Reimer96 (1305) - Alberta, CANADA - MAY 28, 2013
Pours a cloudy medium gold with a sml fluffy white head. Aroma of yeast, malts and slight caramel. Taste is caramel, yeast, sweet malts and a ugh bitterness on the finish. Finishes dry and crisp.

Jcarb28 (97) - Pico Rivera, California, USA - MAY 21, 2013
Golden in color on the pour. Nothing great or amazing with this beer although, its a light, crispy beer with minimal floral aromas. Smooth and not complex on the palate. A nice drinker on a hot day compared to your usual market shelf beers.

b3shine (5707) - Indiana, USA - MAY 19, 2013
Bomber to pint (shared with the Mrs.). Looks solid; a transparent gold with fluffy white head and lively carbonation. Smells doughy and a little hoppy with a notable pilsner yeast presence. Tastes like it smells, only better, with a biterhop presence and a good mouthfeel. A solid lager.

Gethinbeer (2189) - Nova Scotia, CANADA - MAY 17, 2013
Clear golden colour with a thin frotht head. Malt barley, sugar honey syrup aroma. Barley flavour with hints of fruit. Sweet smooth texture. Dull.

maxwelldeux (3751) - Everett, Washington, USA - MAY 15, 2013
Bottle. Pours a hazy darker golden color with a moderate white head. Nose has a little bit of that skunk that most cheap lagers have. Taste is much the same, and even seems a bit dirty. Bleh.

   AROMA 6/10   APPEARANCE 3/5   TASTE 5/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 11/20
Scrapersnbeer (1491) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - MAY 14, 2013
Some graininess, light floral, and something else. Is it corn? In a Rogue beer? Hazy yellow pour, like one of those wheat lagers that have been popping up. Light citrus and bitter metallic, not characteristically Irish like an Irish ale is. Approximate weight and feel of a better than average Euro-lager. Rogue is painted into a corner here...the premium price leaves the consumer expecting an extreme beer every time, and this is not one.

Bendrixian (1157) - Canadiana, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 11, 2013
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.
