3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft: Clear and deep golden. Crisp, tasty, refreshing and easy to drink. Malts were a little toasted and chewy, with a wholesome sweetness. Hops in the finish kind of dried out the tongue and left behind a mild bitterness. Pleasant session beer.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
This was just a great lager. I would love to have some more of this. A nice golden amber body, with a light craggy head and some nice residual lacing. Flavor is slightly sweet and full of honey flavor, like honey grahams perhaps. A slightly toasty aftertaste and just barely noticeable hops. A very nice outing.

crystal clear goldeen body, glossy dense white top. distinct Rogue aroma...must be the free ranging coastal water... creamy and lightly floral. a bit toasty,dries out quickly, crisp and clear as a bell. toasty dry malt finish.

This isn't a bad little lager. It's a dark gold with a nice white fluff of a head that lasts for a while then fades to weather pattern after several minutes. It has a nice hop aroma, more noble hop aromas than I would have expected from a Rogue. Nice light maltiness and the hops add a little crispness. Good easy drinking lager without forsaking all flavor.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
UPDATED: NOV 23, 2003 Subtle malt presence but everything else is understated and unimpressive. I guess most companies make a lager at some point. This wasn't too bad, seemed a little hoppy for a lager, more like a pils.

What a great session beer! Very clean and very crisp. Hard to believe that this is the only lager that this brewery does. Well, at least they do it well.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: NOV 5, 2004 Tasted at the brewery in June 2003. Clear yellow, small white head. Very sour aroma, like old, wet shoes. Smells like a wet tent. Very bright initial flavor, slightly sweet, with a strong burnt peaches flavor.

yellow, slightly hazy, avg. head. Not bad, not at all skunky like one might expect from the style. Thanks for a dark bottle guys! Nothing spectacular, just a malty sweet session beer.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Golden, clear, little head. Crisp, floral, a bit effervescent. Somehow bland and a bit sour at the same time. Not a bad lager, it wasn't skunky or anything, but not very special. Lingering aftertaste that I didn't like too much.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Golden body with medium off-white head. Aroma is mildly sweet and somewhat floral. Taste is light, somewhat sweet, but without much in the way of distinctive flavor. Swallow has a bit of bitterness, sort of grassy.
