Cartoonkhaki (1223) - Brantford, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 4, 2004
Cloudy yellow gold with white head. Flowery like an AIPA should be. Very slight berry flavour from the Juniper berries. Has a bit of an Ice tea flavour to it.

sloth (2688) - Ceciltucky, Co., Maryland, USA - JAN 3, 2004
Medium size offwhite head, good retention and lace. Hazy gold/copper color. Lightly doughy nose with berry hints. Medium body, prickly carbonation. Tasting the juniper berries, i guess. Has a similar flavor profile to the buckwheat rye, hmmm, not sure. Also some malt and hops on the palate. Finish is dry with a overdone hop bite.

rauchbier (3699) - Isle Of Beer, Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - JAN 1, 2004
UPDATED: MAY 7, 2005 Bottle, as Yellow Snow Ale. Hazy orange amber, good white head and nice fine condition. Enticingly spicy in the nose with hints of corriander and a good level of hops. Spicy, fruity, hoppy, piney, lemony and yeasty in the mouthy. Aftertaste starts fruity before becoming dry and pleasantly hop bitter.

GreatStelle (363) - Chico, California, USA - JAN 1, 2004
A very light yet hoppy pale ale. Not really a winter yale but still very good. Worth a try and worth the price. It's has a nice citrus taste. I'm pleased.

JMerritt (1902) - Macomb, Illinois, USA - DEC 23, 2003
Yellow gold in color, nice head. Honey and malt aroma. Very light flavor came as a surprise; I think I expected something a bit more biting. Very buttery texture.

johndoughty (4587) - cheslyn hay, West Midlands, ENGLAND - DEC 23, 2003
Quite cloudy with a very pleasant hoppy feel mixed with citrus.Some traces of honey as well. An all round interesting beer, one of the best I have tried so far from this brewery.

GregClow (3027) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 21, 2003
Hazy golden colour with small head. Big, citric hop nose. Strong herbal hops in the flavour with a hint of malt and honey - but not much juniper. It's good, but far from my favourite Rogue beer.

Brian (145) - Ontario, CANADA - DEC 20, 2003
Cloudy yellow with moderate head. Sour, aroma coupled with a sour, bitter taste that is full of hops. Finishes well.

Hazy dark yellow. Frothy, tan, cobweb-ish head. Sweet malt & caramel aroma w/ floral, citrusy hops. Full, sticky body. Sweet honey-ish malts & caramel w/ some piny, peppery hops.

TChrome (1448) - Bedford, Texas, USA - DEC 10, 2003
Good aroma of hops true to the pale ale style. Beer appears well constructed in teh glass with a nice big fluffy white head, however, I am taking points off for the yellow color. Flavor is good and a bit different. Has the hop bitter/sweet thing going in the beginning then there is a dash of what I am guessing must be the Juniper berries. Finish is dry and not terribly long. Tasty.
