Cloudy yellow-copper with a slight ring of head. Aroma predominantly malt and caramel with a little floral and citrusy hops and a barely perceptible fruitiness. The flavour is a perfect three-way balance of caramely malt, blended hop flavour, and hop bitterness. It says that there is juniper in this beer, but it’s not in the aroma and I wouldn’t have detected it in the flavour if I hadn’t read the bottle. A bit of green apple. Medium body and a bit mouth coating. Overall, excellent.

UPDATED: SEP 9, 2005 Draught. Had this one on tap at D’s Hot Dog & Six pack shop. This was called Yellow Snow when I tasted it. Pours a dark yellow orange that is hazy. Nice head on it that laces well. Good hoppy aroma with some spiciness and a little sourness (the good sour). Flavor is good, like a strange IPA I guess, nice body and mouthfeel with a sweet/bitter finish. Some sort of fruity taste to this one... mangoes and grapefruit? Hell, I don’t know, but I definitely like it. Pretty good balance on this one and I’d call it another smooth brew from a great brewery.

Wood-like note to the aroma with an underlying light caramel malt sweetness. Tan-orange coloured body with thin white head that diminishes to lasting cover with marginal lacing. Cereal/toasted malt flavour with bitter-woody notes and floral/herbal hop flavour. Smooth medium body and low carbonation. Bottle enjoyed with friends to celebrate Solstice.

Frank (3269) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - DEC 16, 2004
Very orange with almost no head and a bit of haze. Nose is hoppy with a definite emphasis on pine and a note of lightly caramelized sugar. Light to medium bodied with very fine and gentle carbonation. There’s a slight soapy and lingering element to the bitterness in the finish that keeps this from being a top notch pale. Still a good drinker though.

Suttree (5420) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - DEC 13, 2004
Dark Yellow, big sloppy white head that fades quickly. Spicy, toasty aroma. Nicely hopped, with notes of pine and a hint of grapefruit. There is something that reminds me of gin in there, as well. Clean crisp finish that says "please drink more"

cloudy pale amber colour. rocky light brown head. malty nose with slight fruit undertones. blended concoction of flavours starting with mild malt to fruity middle and finishes with distinct hoppy taste

Silphium (3188) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - DEC 9, 2004
Another Rogue pale ale with nothing distinctive to report. Hazy straw-colored body, thin/medium light cream head. Standard Rogue aroma of earthy, musty hops and caramely/biscuity malts. Caramely, toasty body with plenty of herbal hops. Pacman yeast is ever-present, but I don’t pick up any indication of juniper berries.

This is another ho-hum ale on the market. Nothing too memorable about this one but has decent flavor

Beer Snob (501) - Ontario, CANADA - DEC 9, 2004
Tried the same night as the disappointing Dogfish Raison D’Etre... Difference here is that the flavoring - juniper berries - doesn’t overpower the hops and malt. Really liked this ale - mouth watering aroma, hint of juniper, creamy, smooth and full bodied. Great flavour lingers in the mouth. A winner, plain and simple.
