Verne (261) - Enumclaw, Washington, USA - SEP 1, 2003
UPDATED: MAR 27, 2004 The name almost scared me away, me being an old Frank Zappa fan and all. So I waited until the big Rogue sale before picking some of this up, at a buck a bomber what the hell. Yes its very yellow, a rich dark yellow with a perfect never ending small bubbled head. Incredible aroma, pine, grapefruit, flowers and malt. Medium bodied malty flavors some fruit and a just a wee bit of spice. The hop bitterness blends in nicely this is a balanced beer for the most part leaning just a little to the hops and spice. My rating seems higher than most and I can only wonder if the fact that this is a winter seasonal and its now late fall has anything to do with that.

2002. In keeping with the urine theme, this beer looks like a sample from someone who needs a beer badly. Let's call it dark golden with a sudsy/soapy head. Fresh floral hop aroma and some underlying fruitiness. Initial flavors of malt and subtle hops are followed by a nice intriguing finish due to the juniper berries. Crisp and refreshing. This is a very nice, distinct ale that reminds me of New Belgium Loft in some ways, only better.

Slick (1969) - Thief River Falls, Minnesota, USA - AUG 4, 2003
Good golden color,small white head that managed to hang around for awhile.Malty aroma with a very nice hop presence,spicy and fruity as well.The malt flavor is kind of weak but the hops definately come through loud and clear with a gentil spice that hits in the middle and slightly milder at the end of the tasting.A very smooth brew that seems to finish dry and leave a mild hoppy,spice after taste.This is definately a brew worth trying.

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.

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.

hopscotch (8783) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - JUN 13, 2003
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!

Ernest (6143) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - MAY 17, 2003
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.

Shag (2584) - Chattanooga, Tennessee, USA - MAY 16, 2003
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.

akinm (282) - San Diego, California, USA - MAY 16, 2003
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.

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.
