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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
