Gold color, nice head, slight skunky hop nose. Slightly sweet, but nicely bittered. Like a premium Heinekin.

Hazy golden body with a thin, frothy white head. Sharp, biscuity malt nose with fairly fresh German, grassy hops. Clean, crisp malt really gives a nice whole grain, bready element that lays under the hops. Fairly full-bodied for the style. The flavors are quite clean and very straightforward. The finish is maybe a bit short, but otherwise copacetic. Nothing outstanding, but a solid, drinkable, hoppy lager.

When I saw this was from Rougue I was very excited, however this was not a great offering. This beer reminded me of a stepped up version of a American lager. If you like a crisp, hoppy lager this maybe right up your street, but I wasn’t feeling it!

JoeM500 (1902) - Crown Point, Indiana, USA - MAY 20, 2004
Golden yellow with a very, very fresh nose. Crispy and wispy head, I would guess this to have come from a tapper!! While not all that exciting of a style, this thirst quencher was a perfect match for my boring burger that accompanied it. Slightly grassy and dry in the middle with just a bit of bitterness at the end.

Beautiful, beautiful color. Pretty tight white head. Thirst quenching, plenty of hops, though the palate was somewhat dissapointing. Still a good beer though, Rouge is my favorite, i haven;t had a beer from the brewery that wasn’t awsome.

beerinmarch (2830) - Washington, USA - MAY 16, 2004
UPDATED: JUN 20, 2005 Pours a nice gold color with a nice white head. Aroma is sweet and malty with a nice hop backing. Taste is sweet with nice hop tones and ends slightly bitter. Very refreshing and smooth. Rogue can pull off any style of beer with great results.

atpayne (615) - Zionsville, Indiana, USA - MAY 13, 2004
Straw color with small head. It has a light sweet malt aroma. Taste is somewhat astringent and feels very light with a decent hop kick. It’s fairly sweet and decent, but not overwhelming.

JahNoth (1039) - Rochester, New York, USA - MAY 7, 2004
Slightly sour, musty aroma. Pee golden in color. Quickly dissipating head. Decent amount of hops and malt for this lager. Mildly chewy, with some detectable yeastiness. Kind of tastes like Rogue’s anti-Rogue beer.

Eyedrinkale (3213) - Astoria, New York, USA - APR 26, 2004
Cloudy yellow color with foamy with head. A light, mellow yeasty aroma taste that has a smooth hop bite and a sweet malty taste. The finish wasn't as crisp as I like, but still clean. An excellent lager.

Braudog (5596) - Hampton, Virginia, USA - APR 5, 2004
UPDATED: APR 29, 2007 Light orange, not red!, with a nice sticky light foam head. Pretty mild caramel-spice flavors, with decent malt backdrop. Almost bubble gummy. Not Rogue’s best effort, but good enough.
