Acetobacter (816) - Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 17, 2011
Enjoyed from a 22oz bomber in a stemless wine glass. The beer pours a brilliant very light amber color, with a low white head that dissolves quickly. The nose shows initial earthy notes of what is evidently Sterling, followed by a low caramel malt note, and a surprisingly noticeable alcoholic note. The palate is fairly, almost overly, mellow, showing a light malt sweetness that is almost honey-like. Bready malt notes also come through. Carbonation and mouthfeel fine. The finish leaves a lingering low crystal malt sweetness on the palate, but is otherwise fairly crisp and very clean. Overall, a beautiful example of the generally flavorless "premium lager" style. Easily enjoyed and certainly well-brewed.

TheCaptMatey (162) - Ohio, USA - MAR 17, 2015
Poured a pale yellow colour with a fluffy white head. Aroma is sweet grainy malt and wheat with grassy hops. Flavor is sweet wheat, citrus, fruity yeast, and bready malts. Light bodied with moderate carbonation ending in a sweet crisp finish.

Bottle @ Party Town / Florence KY --- Hazy light amber, white head that is out of control out of the bottle, but settles to a 1" head cover, thick blobs of lace. Taste is sweet malt that moves effortlessly through the palate, adding floral hops in the finish. A simple brew, easy enough to drink, but also forgettable.

Bottle. Pours a clear amber red with a white head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has lots of sweet grains with a bit of bread and some earthiness. Flavor has sweet grains and sweet bread and a touch of toffee.

KajII (799) - Macon, North Carolina, USA - MAR 7, 2015
Pours a light orange with a yellow hue and a small white frothy head with notes of grain malts, floral hops and a mild hint of caramel. It starts off with a grainy, malty, caramel taste, and then is infused with a nice floral hop presence towads the end. I found it to be rather tasty with a decent body and better than most Pilsners I have tasted... www.facebook.com/KAJIIsBeerReviews

tmongoose (1504) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - MAR 5, 2015
draft that poured a brightish yellow color with white head. the aroma was malts and grassy hops. the flavor was bright and clean almost like a pils. nice decent malt flavor and the hops are right in line. boring for a rogue maybe so but this is not really an exciting beer. it is what it is and its pretty decent all the way around.

"pretty boring for Rogue. Maybe it suffered from having it as part of a sampler tray against much bigger and better beers, but it wasn’t anything special, and a little less than expected."

Transfer from BA review on 3-16-13- Served on tap in a pint glass Appearance – Served a light golden yellow colored brew with a foamy one finger white head. The head has a moderate level of retention, fading slowly over time to leave a light level of lace on the sides of the glass. Smell – The aroma is grainy and citrusy. A biscuit smell is mixed with some lightly toasted malt smells as well as a grapefruit and lemon citrus smell. Taste – The taste begins with some of the grainy flavor that was detected in the nose. There is a light amount of sweeter orange citrus as well as some light caramel taste. Upfront there are some lighter flavors of grapefruit mixed within as well. The grapefruit isn’t huge upfront, but this changes as the flavor advances further. More toward the middle and the end of the taste, a somewhat sour lemon and grapefruit hop flavor comes to the tongue. These give the brew a rather bitter and sour taste. At the very end a grassy flavor joins the mix leaving a rather odd sour but grainy and grass flavor to linger on the tongue. Mouthfeel – The body of the beer on the average side in terms of its creaminess and thickness as well as rather average in carbonation. A bit more carbonation and a slightly thinner body may have suited better the sour flavors of the brew, but overall the feel was pretty decent. Overall – I was not expecting the tastes that were in this beer. Although it is not one I think I would frequent, it has a relatively interesting citrus and sour flavor that make this one a try.

BadAprilia1000 (327) - Sevierville, Tennessee, USA - JUL 29, 2014
Pours a gorgeous golden color with a crisp white head. Aroma is bread, light yeast, and a slightly floral note. Taste is bread, earthy, grass, cereal. Overall very drinkable, not a big beer but the style isn’t supposed to be.

chinchill (2553) - South Carolina, USA - JUL 22, 2014
Poured from a 22 oz. bottle into a pint glass. Appearance: Pours lright yellow-gold with plenty of rising bubbles. The white head is good sized and durable, slowly fading into a thin top layer. Leaves decent lacing. Smell: Some off or unattractive notes from Euro hops. Taste: Better than what the smell hints at, this is a relatively robust and earthy lager. Mildly bitter, lightly hoppy finish and aftertaste. Mouthfeel: Light to medium bodied with a moderate-high amount of spft carbonation. Crisp and smooth. Overall: Not a strong style and one of the least attractive offerings from Rogue. Undated bottle is probably past its prime.
