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.

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 (7859) - 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.

Andrew196 (1091) - Katy, Texas, USA - JUN 15, 2003
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.

AceOfHearts (1375) - Mountain View, California, USA - JUN 14, 2003
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.

argo0 (11317) - Washington DC, USA - MAR 25, 2003
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.

kyzr (1147) - Belgrade, Montana, USA - FEB 5, 2003
Nice gold color with decent head. Mild malts and very light hops but a very nice balance. Finish is clean and crisp.

pretty standard, light yellow and balanced maltiness, if Rogue can't make a lager I like then noone can
