BuckNaked (1230) - Ann Arbor, Michigan, USA - JUL 5, 2005
Bottle: Medium amber body with orange highlights and chill haze, slightly hazy. Aroma: Light hops in the nose - grapefruit, mild orange, and light citrus - with malt notes of grain, toffee, and a hint of caramel. There’s also a slight woody, berry, spicy aroma hidden in there that must be the juniper. Taste: Starts off slightly sweet, then the hops hit almost immediately with midly bitter notes of grapefruit, citrus, spicy wood, juniper(mild gin notes), toffee, acidic caramel, and then later on some spicy sweet grains. Medium bodied, medium carbonation, nice balanced bitterness. The juniper flavor is pretty subtle overall, but definitely adds a unique difference to this beer that I like.

Rastacouere (6164) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 4, 2005
Honest white cover. Pale orange body, slight haze. Mostly grainy nose. Lots of cereals and floral nuances. On the palate, the hops are surprising and up front. Grapefruit is omnipresent. Whereas cookie malt would have worked well, we’re left with grainy malts aplenty. Quickly dominated by citric, astringent mellow spicy acidity. Light-medium bodied, not so tasty globally, moderately carbonated.. Ah well.

Tmoney99 (12755) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUN 29, 2005
Bomber bottle under the name of Yellow Snow Ale. Dark amber hue with large rocky head. Complex aroma of spices and sweet tone. Medium to full body. Complex well balanced flavor of hops, malt and spices with a long pleasing finish.

cvillebeer (134) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - JUN 25, 2005
This was a nice pale ale- not as junipery as I expected- not Rogue’s fault though. Maybe I will try it again, the flavor did have an otherness too it- and I like that it’s subtle rather and overpowering- similer in that respect to Aprihop.

shintriad (700) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 16, 2005
Strong caramel, grapefruit, herbal notes. "Saffron" deScriptor is apt. Lots of pine and other herbs, mild hop sting and a bit of malt for balance. Reminds one of a drive through the Pacific Northwest. One-dimensional? Perhaps, but still a quality brew that’s a bit underrated. This was a Yellow Snow, for the record.

dwyerpg (5089) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - JUN 8, 2005
This smells great. Hoppy, zesty, citrusy. Quick disappearing head. I couldn’t tell you how much juniper affects the taste, but however it does, its nice. A good drink even in summer.

JahNoth (1039) - Rochester, New York, USA - MAY 26, 2005
Pours a light golden in color with a fluffy white head. Grassy aroma with som classic rogue yeast smells. Light bodied with a tingly mouthfeel. Slight grassy hop flavor with a touch of citric bitterness, decent malt backbone, with a spicy bitter finish. Nice brew.

jgentgesdo (685) - Tulsa, Oklahoma, USA - MAY 19, 2005
Pours nice cloudy yellow with fair white head. Floral, piney nose. The flavor is very flowery, flavorful hops with mild malt balance and very little bitterness. Easy drinking and nice finish. Yum.

Dickinsonbeer (5075) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - MAY 17, 2005
I kind of liked this beer overall. Very clean and easy to drink. Not nearly as much juniper or pine as I would have thought. Moderately hoppy all around. Good smooth finish and an overall low to medium carbonation.
