3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
I'm fairly certain this is the same as Rogue's Yellow Snow. In any case, I have a 22 oz. of the Seahorse Pale Ale. As the description says, a light ale, smells citrusy. Mild and refreshing on a hot day.

2.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 5/20
Thick head and milky yellow color. Ok taste and aftertaste. Not really my beer of choice. Hefeweizen drinkers may like it better than I did.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Sparkling clear yellow ale with a large, rocky, enamel-colored head. Mostly lasting with great, thick, interesting lacework.
The nose is malty (caramel) with floral and evergreen notes. Beefy and hearty with notes of fuzzy fruit.
Ok, now a taste. Ok, there are those juniper berries. Malty up front with an excellent hop and juniper berry presence on the backside to balance things out... and dry things out.
Medium-bodied with a creamy mouthfeel and super-soft carbonation. Short, dry finish!
This one pulls up just short of being a world class brew in my book. Another very nice offering from Rogue!

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Head is initially average sized, frothy, off-white, mostly lasting. Body is hazy medium yellow, dense tiny particles, bottle conditioned. Aroma is lightly malty (toasted bread), lightly hoppy (flowers, grapefruit), lightly yeasty (dough). Flavor is moderately sweet, moderately acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, moderately acidic, moderately bitter. Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation, lightly astringent. Hard to believe there's any juniper in here. Smells and tastes like an ordinary APA to me.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: OCT 12, 2003 This was a little bit of a disappointment. Not as complex or flavorful as many APA's I've had. Yellow appearance with a slight scent of hops. Flavor is a little flat and lagerish with a hoppy finish. Decent but not something I would pick up again. This is probably my least favorite Rogue yet.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
yellow orange color with a small head made of small bubbles. light aroma of floral hops. the flavor seemed heavy to me compared to what i was expecting. tasted like what i imagine syrup would taste like if it were somehow made from flowers. a dissapointment from rogue in my opinion.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Nice orange color with a rocky white head. The aroma and flavor were massively perfumey...old fashioned women's perfume. That's about all that I got from it. Very distinctive...very good. Bubbly feeling with a medium dry finish. I really liked this.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: JUN 4, 2003 This 2002 brew poured a small head of small bubbles. It had a transparent light amber colored body with carbonation rising in the mug. It has a floral aroma and a very tart initial taste that was overcome by and even stronger bitter/tart finish that left behind some spicy elements.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Yellow orange color with a small desipating white head. Smell hops and citrus. Taste hops and bitter floral and even some carmel.
