weird......my first impression of this beer is the aroma of coffee at a standard hotel chain. color is medium golden with a slight haze, head is thin and mostly not lasting. flavor is slightly grainy, moderately hoppy, with a roasty quality as well. if this is indeed an APA, it is quite unusual for the style..yet still kinda yummy.

Okay, who else bought this because of the name? Nice hop aroma. Poured like, well... Anyway, it had a mellow hop flavor that was a perfect mix of bitterness and sweet citrus.

Hoppy aroma in which the mentioned juniper barries are noticable. The taste emerges the same as the aroma. A noticable hop presense with juniper and grapefruit hints.

Bottle, from Safeway, Shirley, West Mids. They call it saffron coloured, and if that means dirty yellow, then I'll go along with that. Apricot jam aroma, with fast diminishing head. Quite a strong taste, spicy hops rights from the off. Crispy all the way with significant grapefruit notes all over my tongue, and well into the medium length, dryish finish. This is nice enough but perhaps a little full and spicy for my tastes.

What is that smell? Banana? or am I just seeing the yellow on the bottle and thinking banana? Whatver it is, it's nice. This is an interesting beer. I wouldn't say it's great, but it's intriguing nonetheless. Very florally in the sense of chamomile tea, rather than some of the floral beers. Unfortunately, this was the only Rogue in the two places I went to buy beer tonight. Though it's not a bad offering by any means, I prefer some of their stronger brews.

long lasting, big fluffy bread-like head. Hazy golden colour. Aroma of sweet berries. Subtle hop flavour, not a very aggressive "American Pale Ale". Nonetheless, still a good beer.

Hmmm butterscotch anyone? I picked a lot of diacytle on this one for aroma and taste. Perhaps it was the juniper berries? I am pretty sensitive to diacyle and this one did not work for me. As a whole I love Rogue ales, but this one I could not finish...

UPDATED: FEB 18, 2009 2009-02-05. Lightly hazy golden amber with a modest beige head. (3+) Modest aroma, light herbal notes. (6+) Light bitterness and touches of spruce, herbal noes. Pretty mild overall. (6+) Smooth average plus palate. Pretty meh, makes me question how long it might have been on the shelf before we picked it up. 6/3/6/3/13 - 2.9 Bottle from Premier Wine and Spirits, Halifax

January 2004. Slightly hazy golden yellow (aka. the colour of urine when you have overdosed on multivitamins) with a smallish white head. Interesting aroma with some hops and a bit of fruitiness. Good amount of hops and more fruitiness, but slightly different in the flavour. Decent but not as exceptional as some other Rogue products. 6/3/6/3/14 - 3.2 Bottle from LCBO

UPDATED: JAN 27, 2004 I was really interested in trying this beer. It came to Toronto when they did the pre-Christmas drive. Really great looking bottle, hey it's Rogue. Really pretty to look at. SAFFRON, it's crazy yellow uriney. Pretty bizarre. Somewhat of a dissapointment. Good looking head nice aroma. That disappeared way too quickly. No where near the ammount of juniper I thought would be there. I anticipated a better beer. I was so geared up and excited about it and I really liked it, but was a let down. Still a very good and inventive ale.

This pale ale was drawn from a tap in Richmond. It was saffron in color with a smooth malt balance. It had a spicy finish. This was good drink but not special.
