4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a light, cloudy amber color with a small, dissipating head. Taste is light and fruity but very refreshing. Goes down extremely easy with a honey, malty aftertaste. Note: This is a rating for Morimoto Soba Rogue Signature Ale and a search directed me to this beer as a secondary alias.

A wonderful beer with little aftertaste and not much carryover. Good if you are looking for a beer to have in a series of other beverages.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Reviewed from notes.
This was poured into a pilsener glass because I thought this was a pilsener at the time I had this.
The appearance was a nice hazy to slight orange to brown color with a slight one finger white foamy head that dissipated within about a minute. There as some light lacing trickling around the glass.
The smell had a slight sweet malty to sweet corn to citrus slightly kind of background. Light honey is there but mainly subdued.
The taste was mainly sweet with a nice conglomeration of allocated sweet malts.
On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a fairly decent sessionability about it. Would I have it again? Uh. ...maybe
Overall, decent specialty grain, hmmm, I’d have it again.

Bottle from Kris Wines London. Aroma is very basic, some corn there but not much else. Appearance slightly cloudy, some carbonation. Taste is fairly bland with some fruits lingering. Refreshing enough but miles off anything worth remembering.

Pretty good. Pours a cloudy, light rust color with a little head and lace. The aroma has mild cereal grains and hops. The flavor is malty, a little nutty, with a mild note of vanilla at the finish.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
22oz bottle. On close out at Party Source for $5.50 or so. Poured into a jar-type pint glass. Mildly hazy, mostly clear orange amber color. Good thin, kind of rocky half-finger off-white head, with good retention. Medium-bigger body. Kind of crisp, light to moderate strength carbonation, a bit of a sharp texture to it, though. More dry finish. Kind of a bigger citrusy hoppy aroma to it. Pretty spicy. Some caramel malt, some orange creme, and some wet cold noodle flavor. Not bad overall, aside from the bit of papery oxidization... More noticeable in this pilsner than in the black version I had last week. Moderate to bigger bitter taste, minimal sweet. Pretty dry. Bitter like an IPA/DIPA, tastes like 70+ IBU. Solid stuff to slip on slowly, but the age is showing a bit here, considering how hoppy this seems to be... Black version is drinking much better at the moment. I’m surprised at how assertive this one is... A little rough to drink on it’s own, but very nice to wash my sandwich down with. 6/4/7/3/13

650ml bottle from Appellation Wines. Memory banks rate. Partly because I never felt so ripped off before! Shit. That was a lot of money, for a very average beer.

Aroma is citrus hop, clove, bread and yeast. Taste is bitter with some yeast notes and a slight tang. Hazy gold body with a head that retains ok.

This ale is all about personal preference - will be polarising - no doubt in my mind this is another high quality Rogue brew - well done fellas - interesting taste - kinda soapy but pleasantly so - probably something I’d try once a year like all the Rogue range - some I’d drink a lot and others occasionally, like this.

Fresh, modest beer with a soft taste of grain and malt. Has some fruits as well.
