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.

Draught at Drafting Room Exton: Aroma was moderately sweet and floral. Smelled of strawberries, hops, and caramel malts. Poured amber in color with a medium-sized, creamy, tan head that lasted throughout. Fair lacing. Clear. Not sparkling. Flavor was lightly sweet and lightly bitter. Tasted of strawberries, berries, pine, hops, caramel malt, and smarties. Light to medium body. Watery texture. Average carbonation. Dry, medium bitter, finish. Overall, a solid ASA.

Tap @ Bittercreek Alehouse in Boise, ID: Pours a clear amber color with a thin head. The nose is fairly hoppy with a crisp dry and biscuity note. The flavor confirms with a dry and fairly bitter beer. Strong Ale? Hmm, not sure about this. There were some caramel and pale malts about, but not much in regards to lingering dextrins or whatnot. The finish is toasty and drying. Nice IPAish beer, very "rogue" style.

A deep amber color this was a strong ale that did not kick in your teth upon tastng. This was light and good and had great finishing qulaities. This was a great Annversary beer.

JB175 (1665) - Bucks County, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 26, 2007
Draft @ Grey Lodge. Amber color with a decent size white head. Aroma is sweet and hoppy with some sugary-malt scents. Taste was hoppy with some caramel and grainy sweetness + some piney-citrusish hops. OK, but not all that well put together. Went better with spicy food, but this is definately on the lower end of Rogue and especially JLS beers.

Magjayran (1379) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - APR 25, 2007
You would never guess this beer to be strong and I highly doubt that it is. Amber color with a big white head and lots of lacing. Semit sweet malty aroma. Some apple juice in the aroma with a funny bit of pine. Fairly thin bodied. Nothing you’d ever write home about.

Stine (1574) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - APR 25, 2007
Tap at the Happy Gnome. Cinnamon and fruit bread aroma. General perfume flavor. Leafy and floral. Some interesting spice taste, but it’s mostly a bore that might have been better.

TomDecapolis (4477) - Milton, Delaware, USA - APR 16, 2007
On tap at the Drafting Room in Springhouse. Pours a lightly hazy orange amber with a smaller creamy off white head that left some spotty lacing. Aroma of floral, mixed citrus, earthy, some caramel with a nice level of maltiness. Flavor was hop bitterness, grapefruit, pine, some earthiness, toasted malt, lots of hop flavor yet a malty balance that seemed appropriate.

crizay (1050) - Brook Park, Ohio, USA - APR 7, 2007
Cloudy brownish orange, small white head that faded away. This was very weak and just had nothing going on. Caramel like sweetness, some citrus and grassy hops with an irony bitterness that kinda killed off all other flavors in the aftertaste. It didn’t AMAZE me that with only 2 ingredients there was NO COMPLEXITY.

Suttree (5142) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - APR 5, 2007
Orange, cloudy, with a thin white head. Faint resiny, piney aroma. Clean palate. Resiny and citrusy, with a touch of caramel. Y’know, this is a fine beer, nothing wrong with it, and if i were at a bar and this were the only thing decent on tap, I’d be content - more than content, actually - to drink this all night. But geez, I’m running out of new ways to describe these Rogue JLS beers. If you like most of the other ones, chances are, you’ll like this one, too. On tap, Barley’s, Knoxville.

Papsoe (25085) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - APR 3, 2007
(On tap) Clear, amber golden with a creamy, off-white head. Lightly sweet caramel aroma. Fairly light body with lightly sweet caramel notes and then a hoppy, unrefined bitterness. Not really a great beer. 240307
