Bottle. This is a generously hopped amber with lots of effervescence. Worth a try but nothing to write home about.

It's relatively low malt, so the hop character of pine really shines. The bitterness seems more pronounced on linger. And of course it's all topped off by that typical Rogue yeast taste

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle, Park Tavern. Copper color, rich malty aroma. Taste is bitter right away, then big chewy malty sweetness, finishing with pine needle and hints of dried orange peel. Interesting, a lot going on. Tasty.

Best way I can describe this beer is its a very good american pale ale with a piney taste that is very overpowering. Don’t get me wrong its a great beer though.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
[355ml bottle] Pours a caramel brown colour with an extremely fast-dispersing head. Ends up totally flat on top, but with pulsating rising carbonation – every inch like a glass of Coca Cola. The aroma is sweet, bready malt with a background of cinnamon. On the flavour, the cinnamon becomes even more prominent, and eclipses, for a while, the yeasty, earthy malt. Towards the end, all of that returns and finishes in somewhat of a muddle

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from Cotteridge Wines; hazy amber/red pour, off white head, fresh hop aroma, taste is citrus hop with some pine, malty backbone, soapy mouth feel, good hoppy American amber but no hint of Xmas other than Santa of the bottle.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
650ml bottle shared with Joes and Dutchdrebus. Hazy red color with a medium sized lightly beige head that lasts for a long time. Smell malts, lightly bread, lightly dough, some sweetness a bit resembling a barley wine. Taste malts, lightly sweet, nice bitterness, lightly some fruityness. Quite like it. Medium carbonation, medium body.

Bottle @ joes thx to benzai. Clear copper colour with a small white head. Smells sweet, barley wine, cattlefeed, hay, barnyard. Tastes malty, barley, sweet, some hops.. It’s quite thin though. Could use more body. Low on carbo.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Murky orange brown pour with very little head. Piney yeast smell. Very bitter not a lot of taste. Piney, offensive, not what I would expect from a Xmas beer. Not great.
