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.

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.

Aubrey (3455) - Bellingham, Washington, USA - NOV 10, 2003
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.

harlequinn (2744) - Tacoma, Washington, USA - NOV 3, 2003
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.

aracauna (3160) - Georgia, USA - OCT 10, 2003
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.

BückDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - AUG 18, 2003
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.

3fourths (8295) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JUN 26, 2003
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.
