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 (11579) - 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 (1153) - 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.

Zach Diesel (906) - Sisters, Oregon, USA - JAN 20, 2003
pretty standard, light yellow and balanced maltiness, if Rogue can't make a lager I like then noone can

UPDATED: APR 17, 2006 Rating #1 Tap in Newport, OR (5 3 6 4 12). Light golden yellow. Dry but oddly full flavor. Exceptionally smooth and mellow. Rating #2 (5 3 5 3 11). Bottle. A smooth golden color with a white head. Hay, wheat, and slightly dusty flavors. Smooth with a corn aftertaste.

Murphy (1759) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - SEP 23, 2002
One of the best lagers Iíve had. Rogue shows its versatility again. Kells is a great bar too.

AxeMaster221 (343) - Portland, Oregon, USA - AUG 20, 2002
Light, tasty, and drinkable in quantity. A nice little bitter bite at the finish. As lagers go, this is quite good. Iíve now seen this bottled around Portland, but I got mine at Kellís on tap.

Very light, tastes remarkably like Corona. Good to have more than one of, or just to get what we like to call íDRUNKí
