Rastacouere (6136) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 25, 2010
Pale orange to dark golden pour topped by a minimal white head. A toasty, gently biscuity, fresh cerealic nose with barely noticeable fruity hops and an almond tart nuttiness that feels a little buttery, but not disturbingly so. In mouth, while thin, it has a rather firm mouthfeel, helped by cleansing, engaging carbonation. Relatively linear, malt-focused palate that remains in lightness. Highly bready and perhaps a little past its prime, but fresh and on draught, I suppose this would have been very good, almost surprisingly so since lagers are not necessarily Rogue’s specialty. At this stage, it’s still a drinkable and pleasant brew.

joeyplush (648) - Garnet Valley, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 24, 2010
Very unimpressed. Opaque orange color, thinnish head and non-existent lacing. Aroma has a yeasty character. Flavor is slightly malty, but not very robust. Very bland beer overall - not one of Rogue’s better accomplishments.

Bottle pours a cloudy gold brew with a thin white head. Malty scent. Taste is, well, not exciting..........move along.

tommeagher (222) - Jersey City, New Jersey, USA - OCT 16, 2010
It pours a cloudy, burnt amber tone. It has a very light smell with really no head. It’s a good, stiff, bitter fall brew. Very decent.

italianjohn (2360) - Penndel, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 9, 2010
Clear darker golden pour lots of fluffy off white head ... aroma of caramel and bready malts and some floral hop .... taste of light floral hops but mostly caramel malts and bready malts with a malty dry finish ... very drinkable and a simple marzen

tmoreau (2530) - Lombard, Illinois, USA - OCT 3, 2010
Sampler at an Oktoberfest tasting at Binny’s in Glen Ellyn, IL., and poured from a bomber with an orange/gold hue, creamy and bubbly, off white head foam, and ribbons and spots of lacing. The nose presented some grain and a little toastiness. Decent malt content in the flavor, but also picked up a bit of corn and light lactic hints, while finishing fairly dry. Not a big fan at this point, but will try again in the future

junon (422) - Honolulu, Hawaii, USA - SEP 29, 2010
I may have to come back to this one. Initial notes...bouquet is tight. closed. I am not getting much. Flavour wise it gets a little more interesting. Starts almost like an Ale and very briefly it has that caramel and I thought it would of been a bit fruity. However it finished crisp and vegetal.

Fevernova (210) - Athens, Ohio, USA - SEP 28, 2010
22 oz Bottle -- Burnt orange liquid with a thin white head. Aromas of apples, pears, roasted malt, and yeast. Mildly sweet throughout with a little hop bitterness. Not very malty and feels thin but is very enjoyable.

Bomber pours gold with off white head. The aroma is sweet, grainy and develops spicy hops, earthy hops and a dash of lemon. The taste is pretty rich and sweet with sweet malts, a sweet sense of honey and then a healthy lagery yeastiness. Slightly above the sweetness rides a modest layer of spicy and earthy hops. It has a pleasing near creamy mouthfeel.
