3 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
This was a nice light crisp brew. It was a little cloudy which surprised me but had very little after taste and little hop aroma. I was thinking this would be more like an Irish Red but since it has Lager in the name, that makes sense. It’s not your typical lager but fairly easy to drink.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bomber to pint (shared with the Mrs.). Looks solid; a transparent gold with fluffy white head and lively carbonation. Smells doughy and a little hoppy with a notable pilsner yeast presence. Tastes like it smells, only better, with a biterhop presence and a good mouthfeel. A solid lager.

1.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Bottle. Pours a hazy darker golden color with a moderate white head. Nose has a little bit of that skunk that most cheap lagers have. Taste is much the same, and even seems a bit dirty. Bleh.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Some graininess, light floral, and something else. Is it corn? In a Rogue beer? Hazy yellow pour, like one of those wheat lagers that have been popping up. Light citrus and bitter metallic, not characteristically Irish like an Irish ale is. Approximate weight and feel of a better than average Euro-lager. Rogue is painted into a corner here...the premium price leaves the consumer expecting an extreme beer every time, and this is not one.

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Super clear yellow with a really carbonated head. Dank aroma of ’noble hops’ and sweet corn but does have a flowery hoppy aroma as well. Metallic bitterness mixed with a sweeter finish and classic pilsner flavour. Rogue beers are never cheap wherever I have traveled to but i don’t know why people would pay decent money for a light lager like this. boring.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
650ml bottle. Pours a lightly hazed yellow with below average white head that laces out quickly and leaves a thin ring. A lot of grain with the faintest wisp of something hoppy. I want to say there’s something chocolaty about the nose...Remarkably nondescript stuff on the palate. mostly grain with that same chocolaty edge and a faint hint of lemon. Boring.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
A thin light head, with a great golden color and a malty aroma. Beer has very subtle hops overtones, with a mild body. Overall, very light taste. It’s a great option for powering down beers, and having some class while doing it.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
650 ml bottle from and shared with Albatross. Pours a golden, sediment-filled straw with a thin, yet long-lasting white head. Aroma is pils malt. Flavor is wheat flour, butter, cereals, some fruits, yeast, white bread...and, dare I say, potatoes ? (or is it just the name influencing me?)
Finish is earthy and herbal hops. Medium body, soft mouthfeel, weak to average carbonation. Very solid lager.

On draught at rogue airport - slightly cloudy gold. Small foamy head. Nose of faint citrus - really have to sniff hard to even find a smell. Taste of hint of lemon, some pine. Not much flavor.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Draft. Yellow body, clear. Frothy white head, diminishing. Aroma of toasted grain and herbal hops. Note of pepper. The flavor is moderately sweet and lightly bitter. It finishes lightly sweet and lightly to moderately bitter. Light to medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation. Light taste of grain, biscuit and herbal hops. Light bitterness lingers into the finish. Fairly clean and crisp. Inoffensive, but not much flavor.
