More orange than amber. Nice white thick pillows head. Softy malted, creamy, quiet smooth ale. Rouge mark hops are as always there leaving its presence in my aftertaste.

A tremendous little hoppy averican pale ale. In the spirt of SNPA considering the cascade hop character but it has more body and caramel malt. It is a little less dry as a result, an excellent product. Funny that I avoided trying this beer for a few years now because of the vile name.

Pours a nice gold color with a small quickly dissapating head with lots of lacing. Not a big aroma, but pleasant smell of hay and flowers. Good balnce on the front of the flavor with the grapefruit essence from the hops and juniper, although it finishes a little thin. Overall a good APA.

Good hops, good body. Nothing wrong with this Rogue, although I think it's a re-release of another beer. Certainly tasty, on par with other Rogue beers.

This has a big floral aroma with a touch of spice. Light gold in colour, Yellow Snow (great name) has a elder flower flavour that starts smooth and then becomes citrus fruit bitter. Very floral in character - similar to Badgers Golden Champion, but in a bigger bottle! Nicely balanced.

Slightly cloudy glowing amber hue with a decent creamy head. Strong hoppy nose with grapefruit and floral hints. Massively hopped taste with a good balance. More IPA like than just a standard pale ale. Juniper berrys are evident. Flora and citrus pack a punch on the taste buds. What a simpley fantastic ale. All Rogue ales I have had to date have been superb and this is one of the best.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Poured a light orange/golden color with a fluffy white head and beautiful lacing. Mild citrus hop aroma. Bitter, sour taste, followed by a smooth malt taste. Overall the taste was alittle too smooth for me. I was hoping for something more.

Beautiful looking beer. Clear and copper with a huge frothy off white head. Mostly lasting. Nice lacing. Cotton candy - sugary smell. Buttery. Citrusy hops. Sweet malty taste. Pretty heavy on the malt. Mild citrus - grapefruit hoppiness that lingers quite nicely with sugary maltiness.

Not bad. Decent color. Very good use of hops- its spicy just as advertised. I don't love pale ale to begin with but this is still pretty good.
