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 (5489) - 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.

Suttree (4903) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - MAR 27, 2004
Understated, for a Rogue. Actually defined more by what its not. No huge hop flavors, no assertive body. Nice, but drifts toward boring - something a Rogue should never do.

TheBeerGod (5045) - Newport News, Virginia, USA - MAR 25, 2004
Bottled version purchased from Bon Vivant in Smithfield, VA, surprisingly enough. Pours a hazed gold. Medium fluffy light tan head. Nose is lightly hopped, and malted. The taste is more malted but has a crisper hop body. There's some dryness to the palate but it finishes well enough, sort of malted grass(?).

raindog (560) - Evansville, Indiana, USA - MAR 23, 2004
Hazy,light,golden. Creamy,head. Doesn't look like every other Rogue beer. Very sweet,pilsner malts in the aroma. Light grassy,floral hops. Full,creamy,and thicker than expected. Lots of sweet malt,light bread,some grass. Finish is malty,fairly hoppy,but not overdone.Doesn't taste like every other Rogue beer. Good lager,Thanks Andre'!

Nuffield (3637) - Roseville, Minnesota, USA - MAR 16, 2004
Interesting. Pleasingly non-hoppy, creamy aroma. More dry, seemingly Germanic hops? with a creamy, dusty and moderately pleasing flavors. Smooth, frothy palate. Yellow color, typical Rogue head. Somehow I got an adjuncty flavor from this--cream corn--though I don't believe there would be adjuncts here. (on tap at Rogue Ales Public House, Portland)

DuffManOhYeah (133) - USA - FEB 13, 2004
Smells great and a really solid effort from Rogue at a lager. Very strong hops taste, it tastes like what Heineken wishes their beers could taste like. Pretty dry aftertaste. I don't generally like lagers, but this was top notch.

Had on tap at Summits Wayside tavern Nice amber color with a thick creamy head. Nice caramel notes in this malty one from Rogue...Good flavor maybe a little thin in the body...Not Rogues best effort
