A German-style Pilsner brewed by the Bride and Groom to celebrate their heritage. Prost! "A toast to love and laughter and happily ever after." Brewed on Valentine’s Day 2005 for their wedding on April 9, by Stacey Wacker and John Maier (with Brewer in the wings).

Bubbly golden beer with a fluffy head. Huge grassy hop aroma. Flavor is biscuity, bready, and very grassy. The bitterness is pretty big for a pils as there is a strong lingering grassy bitterness. Actually pretty damn bitter, and thats how I like it.

BückDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - MAY 8, 2005
Draught @ Bitter Creek Alehouse, Boise, ID
Pale gold/yellow color with a bright white head and very light lacing. Nose of citrusy light hops & some trademark pacman qualities. The flavor is balanced with some light malts & a spruce/spicey finish. Decent but not on par with their other pilseners.

egajdzis (5456) - Pennsburg, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 15, 2005
Poured a hazy golden color with a small white head that left light lacing on the glass. Aroma of citrus, dough, and caramel. Taste of citrus, light caramel malts, dough, with a crisp, dry, bitter finish. Quaffable.

UPDATED: JUN 5, 2005 Draft at the Capital Ale House. Body is golden amber with a small white head. Nose is fruity and hoppy but not overdone hoppiness like most Rogue beers are. Hops, big fruit notes, light caramel, and light grassy notes. Taste is hoppy and malted with light caramel, grass, some hints of straw, and big fruit notes. Berrries and lighter citrus seem to make up the fruitiness. Body is medium with a moderate carbonation feel. Finishes with more grass, hops, light maltiness and fruit. Not bad!

Tasted on tap at the Rogue Brew house in Eugene. This pilsner pours a medium gold color. Small sized white foamy head. Aroma is cereal and grain, slightly sweet. A light to medium bodied pilsner. Malts are fruity and sweet, touch of orange. Hops are floral and spicy without a lot of bitterness. I was expecting this beer to be an IPA or APA from the name. Stupid me. Nice balance. Crisp and clean. Mouthfeel is full. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is slightly bitter.

Suttree (5317) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - MAY 19, 2006
I was kind of surprised at this one. Most of the Rogue Locker Stock have been rather over the top strong ales, but this one seemd be more about finess and balance. Golden orange, with a white head. Citrusy, vaguely sweet, with a bit of earth in the aroma. Nice crisp bitter bite up front, followed by a nice sweet edge. Nice juicy palate. citrusy to the end, and slightly bitter finish. Draft at Barley’s, Knoxville.

On tap at the Sanctuary in Iowa City. The body was hazy dark gold with a white head. The aroma was strong pizza type herbs like oregano and fresh cut wood. The taste has some bread crust with some grapefruit rind. There was a strange bitter finish, kind of like apple core, but not that pleasant.

Tap at Hop Devil Grill - I know that all Rogue beers taste the same, and still, every time I’m presented with one I haven’t tried, I just have to drink it (kind of like those wackos that own dozens of copies of Catcher in the Rye) - what the hell is wrong with me? - not that this was bad - not that it’s really much like a pilsner, either - rogue just ought to call this (and most of their other beers, for that matter) an IPA because that’s pretty much what this tastes like - there is a light, slightly fruity sweetness to this that is somewhat like a maibock, so I guess that makes it a little different - it’s a rogue beer, and that’s probably all that really needs to be said about it.

Aroma – Great Aroma lots of sweet hops and great malts.

Flavor – A nice easy to drink beer. Was on tap and fresh. Where did they find it or wow hw did they get it. A retired beer out here in Oly. Great brewing build.
Palate – Crisp flavorful Mouthfeel, Great texture with a dry finish.
Overall – This was a great beer. I was so happy I got to try it and wow where did it come from. I will have to do some asking around. Where and how did they get this beer? Great stuff.

Draught at TDR EX: Aroma of hops, malts, and pine. Poured dark yellow (like dark urine) in color with a small white head that disappeared quickly. Very hazy. Flavor was light to medium bitter. Tastes of hops, herbs, and vegetables. Medium body. Dry texture. Average carbonation. Bitter herbal finish.
