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 (2679) - 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.

(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.

JonR888710 (999) - Cochabamba, BOLIVIA - APR 18, 2005
Cloudy, golden-orange body with a monstrous thick, creamy egg nog colored head. Leaves moderate lacing. Smell is pineapple and soap, nothing special. Taste is dry, roasted, and very bitter, grapefruits, hay, the advertised juniper berries. Some sweetness and malt exist, traces of honey suckle. This is on par with any run of the mill microbrew’s IPA.

22 oz bottle in the yellow snow bottle.. Poured a pale yellow with a medium white head. Aroma was hoppy with a bit of sweet malt. Flavor followed suit with an up front mild hop flavor and a bit of sweet malt and spiciness. Medium mouthfeel with good carbonation.

22 oz bottle Didn’t know this was formerly the Yellow Snow, thought I found something mysteriously new... Very small white head. Very yellow color. Smells hoppy. Taste is also kind of hoppy with a little taste not unlike some gins I’ve had...hence...juniper. And I love gin, even straight up. Interesting beer, too bad I had to go into NYC to get it (love New Beer Distributors), wish it were available not a bus ride away

lamas (1494) - Washington DC, USA - APR 7, 2005
22 oz. bottle. Pours a hazy orange with medium-sized off-white head. Aroma is grassy and hoppy with some subtle fruitiness. Smells a little like a tea bag. Sweet and tangy taste with some hints of berries. Dry, hoppy citrus finish. On the thin side. Could’ve been something if it wasn’t so thin.

So this is what they call Yellow Snow now huh? Wasn’t mentioned on the bottle but I guess it’s not surprising since it tasted so familiar. After a hard day of school and work and from a big bottle. The smell was incredibly appetizing and made my mouth water. Aroma contains hops and what was for me an unidentifiable sweetness. Pours a golden color with a thick head. Funny thing is that it if I didn’t know better I would pass this off as a standard lager by looking at it. Great flavor with hops and some spice. Doesn’t remind me of gin at all really. Smooth palate. Really a great beer.
