COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Brewed in honor of Bob Brenlin, long time friend of John Maier and Rogue’s first draft account in Seattle, where dry-hopped Saint Rogue Red became a cult classic amongst Pacific NW hop-heads! Latona 20th achieves amazing complexity by using just two ingredients. The malt, Special Aromatic, is from France and is produced for a few Belgian brewers. The hops are a new variety, Mt Rainier which grown in Oregon. This ale is highly aromatic from the eathly notes of the malt and the citrusy quality of the hops. OG = 15.6 degrees Plato, FG = 3.9 degrees Plato, IBU approx 65.

Ratman197 (10200) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - SEP 28, 2009
On tap at Falling Rock poured a hazy amber with a small lingering amber head. Aromas of carmel, fruittiness and some strange floral or herbal notes. Palte was medium bodied and smooth with a lightly astringent finish. Flavors of carmel, honey, fruittiness and some odd herbal flavor with a smooth dry bitter finish.

gracefullypunk (667) - Portland, Oregon, USA - SEP 22, 2009
Free taster at the brewery. Poured a cloudy orange honey with plenty of lacing. aromas of brown sugar, florals, and even some red fruits. Tastes floral, biscuit, malts with a bit of a bitter grapefruit finish.

hayduke (3468) - Eureka, California, USA - AUG 20, 2009
Draft pour at the Rogue Public House in Portland, Oregon this came in the glass a rich amber color with a white head and light lacing. Nose of ripe fruit and flowery hops. Smooth creamy mouthfeel. Flavor is again full of ripe fruit and the finish is long and bitter. A really interesting beer and quite good overall.

KyotoLefty (6715) - Kyoto, JAPAN - AUG 7, 2009
Draught at Q-Brick. Deep amber color. Lovely, fragrant, flowery hops. Ok malt, dry and earthy—now that I hear it is French, it makes sense. Caramel and a slightly harsh finish. Ok hops, not so bitter, but very earthy. A decent, original beer.

vtafro (3795) - Wayne, New Jersey, USA - JUL 15, 2009
On Cask @ Rattle’N’Hum. Where is the beer here. I feel like I’m drinking a light beer, not a bad light beer, but where is the flavor?

Oakes (12789) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 23, 2009
Hazy amber. Thick head. Fresh, fruity hop aroma (leaf, orchard fruit). Fruity, bitter hop. Leafy with faint berryish notes. The malts are caramelly and crystal with some chewiness. Finishes both sweet and bitter with a woody signature. I also like that I get to remember the Latona, which is one of my favourite neighbourhood beer bars in Seattle.

Beershine (5218) - The Sunshine State, Florida, USA - FEB 20, 2009
Draught @ Cock & Bull. Clear copper with nice white head and lacing. Very bright and leafy hop. Low carbonation. Has a nice lingering hop finish but is a more subtle beer than expected. Sessionable and lighter than I thought but is assertively hopped, more along the leafy cannabis type than fruity or earthy. Nice beer.

durhambeer (2500) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - JAN 22, 2009
Pint from Tyler’s. Slightly hazy golden orange pour with smallish head and decent lacing. Lots of sweet orange peel and crazy floral notes. Reminds me a bit of lemon-scented cleaner. Sweet malts and bitter hops. Amazing for a few sips but becomes a bit cloying quickly. Great long bitter finish, though.

FunkyBrewster (1518) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - DEC 19, 2008
Pours a slightly hazy golden yellow with a small white head. Aroma is slightly sweet grapefruit hoppiness. Caramel malts with a subtle nuttiness. Flavor starts very mellow with a small but sweet hoppiness. Gains a hint of spice towards the finish with some piney hop bitterness. Medium body and moderate carbonation. Not bad but never really meets its potential. Flavors stay very reserved though it is balanced well.
