Hazy orange in colour. Aroma is hoppy and grassy. Flavour is of soft flowery hops, grass, some tartness and some fruit (grapefruit). Finishes with a medium bitterness, slighlty dry.

Tasted in Toronto from LCBO. Tasted in dimple mug. Orangy rust colour, cloudy with a thin but fluffy white head. Aroma has a spicy element with a flowery hopped finish. Slightly perfumy aroma also. Flavour has a deep malt / grain backbone with that hopped spicy ending.

(650ml bottle) Pours a medium, rocky, white head. Slow dissipation. Cloudy, orange body. Nose of mellowed hops, slight citrus that transfers to the flavour. Quick, uneventful finish?

More orange than amber. Nice white thick pillows head. Softy malted, creamy, quiet smooth ale. Rouge mark hops are as always there leaving its presence in my aftertaste.

A tremendous little hoppy averican pale ale. In the spirt of SNPA considering the cascade hop character but it has more body and caramel malt. It is a little less dry as a result, an excellent product. Funny that I avoided trying this beer for a few years now because of the vile name.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a nice gold color with a small quickly dissapating head with lots of lacing. Not a big aroma, but pleasant smell of hay and flowers. Good balnce on the front of the flavor with the grapefruit essence from the hops and juniper, although it finishes a little thin. Overall a good APA.

Good hops, good body. Nothing wrong with this Rogue, although I think it's a re-release of another beer. Certainly tasty, on par with other Rogue beers.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
This has a big floral aroma with a touch of spice. Light gold in colour, Yellow Snow (great name) has a elder flower flavour that starts smooth and then becomes citrus fruit bitter. Very floral in character - similar to Badgers Golden Champion, but in a bigger bottle! Nicely balanced.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Slightly cloudy glowing amber hue with a decent creamy head. Strong hoppy nose with grapefruit and floral hints. Massively hopped taste with a good balance. More IPA like than just a standard pale ale. Juniper berrys are evident. Flora and citrus pack a punch on the taste buds. What a simpley fantastic ale. All Rogue ales I have had to date have been superb and this is one of the best.
