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.

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.

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.

This was a dissappointment. Not a bad beer overall, but I was expexting a juniper ale and couldn’t really detect the juniper at all. A bit light for the style which makes it come across as weak and uninteresting. Hopefull they will vamp up the juniper flavor in years to come.

auerbrau (3203) - Ithaca, New York, USA - MAY 6, 2005
Clear dark gold pour, with a nice clean white head. Piquant leafy aroma. Typical pale ale, with a resiny aftertaste. Very smooth and clean crisp finish.

fordest (2470) - Santee/San Diego, California, USA - MAY 5, 2005
22 oz. bottle from Mr. Liquor. "Yellow Snow" package. Yellow/Orange with very thin head. Not much lacing to speak of. Aromas of hoppy citrus and evergreen spice. Spicy flavor, very hoppy, very bitter.

PhillyBeer2112 (2761) - Oviedo, Florida, USA - APR 26, 2005
Orange-gold, with large foamy off-white head. OK lacing. Light spicy orangey grapefruit hop aroma. Initial flavor is a spicy hop burst, some light malt floats around. Tingly hops fizzle all over mouth, leading to a strong bitter finish. Lingering spicy and bitter notes. A little under-malted but otherwise a good APA.

kwoeltje (2233) - Manchester, Missouri, USA - APR 24, 2005
(Yellow Snow bottle) Hazy medium gold with almost no head, slight lace. Spice aroma-hard to pin down. Flavor has some pine hops and malt. Plus another flavor that must be the juniper berries.

Solid Ale. Nothing Extrodinary. I definatly got burned out on my old friend ’yellow snow’ after I bought three cases of bombers last summer! Still is a very tasty treat though!

Very piney. could have used a better hop background; the junipers just don’t do it. An okay pale, and an interesting experiment, but not Rogue’s best. Didn’t know this was the Yellow Snow. Better packaging decision.
