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.

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(?).

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 (3666) - 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)

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

Pint at the Rogue Pub in Newport dock. In appearance it looks like typical lager , a good one, but at closer inspection the gold colour is more deep and solid than any I have seen. First thing I noticed is that the "nose" of this lager is slightly stronger in the maltiness than I expected..but of course thgere is plenty evidence of the hops. Great tasting lager, not too thin like many if its ilk..very malty to start..sweet and rather thick, then a great floral hoppiness takes over as the beer leaves the mouth on its journey down the throat. Very acceptable on the palate..very smooth. A very drinkable beer..I had three last night at the pub..that was after I had finished off a pint of the doppelbock and the chocolate stout.

Golden with cottony head. Nice aroma with clean pale malt and grassy and spicy hops. Flavor is generally lightly sweet, with just a touch of hops. Starts balanced but gets sweeter and sweeter (even when still cold). A good partner to food but not something to drink alone and enjoy, it doesn't make you want to finish it.

Sham (1845) - Seattle, Washington, USA - NOV 23, 2003
Hazy gold pour with minimal head, and very spotty lacing. Nose of citrus hops and malts. Hmm, lemons in the flavor along with sweet malts. Smooth palate and a lemony finish. Almost reminds me of a pilsener. Not bad, nothing to get excited about though.

Slick (1969) - Thief River Falls, Minnesota, USA - NOV 17, 2003
Golden in color,small uneventful head.malty mildly fruity aroma with a mild hop presence,fairly sweet as well.Malty taste,fruity and decently hopped,with the after taste being sweet and hoppy.I'd have to say that this brew is fairly decent but not real great.Well worth trying but don't invest alot of time in locating,there are better out there.
