3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Malty banana, smooth rich mouthfeel with low carbonation and super-low hops on both aroma and finish. I like this in an American Pale or a small beer, but for a pils or anything else? Thus, mouthfeel is high because it fits my taste, but overall is low, since I’m not sure this is a pilsner.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle in ’10 w/ friends. Pours a slightly hazy yellow golden color with bubbly white head, not a tonf of lacing. Aromas of lemon zest, hay, light bread, and hoppy yeast. Taste is grainy, malts, and very well carbonated. Finished with a medium hop bite. Not my favorite style but pretty decent.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap at flying saucer. Pours a cloudy gold with a small frothy white head that diminishes quickly to nothing. The aroma is a sweet corn malt and cereal. Thin mouthfeel with a Sweet malt and yeast flavor. Easy to drink, a good pils from Rogue.

22oz bottle. pours a clear gold under a very large, creamy white head. aroma is kind of malty with just a hint of sweetness and not really hoppy. flavor is malty and kind of sweet. i keep tasting almond extract and butter? something might have gone wrong with this one....it’s drinkable but, far from zesty and/or hoppy.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
A murky gold pour with small white head. Served in fluted pils glass. Scent is mostly malts. Taste is somewhat fruity/malty with no bitterness. No bad but not what was expected.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
A: Pours a nice light yellow color. Mildly cloudy with a nice big head when poured in a pils glass.
S: Nice light sweet fruits. I did not detect any of the citrus described by others. Just nice sweet fruits, like peaches and nectarines.
T: Nice light brew. It has a nice sweet fruity quality about it, but it is supported by a nice yeasty malty backbone. There is a tinge of hops in the background, but it’s not something a true hop head would adore.
M: Nice and light. Has a sparkling quality to it.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Not sure how old this bottle was, but there were only a few left at the store, so I bought them both. The beer pours out light amber color, hazy with an off-white 1" rocky head with spotty lacing. Aroma is Play-Doh, bready with a light fruity/apple juice note. Flavor is light malts, light bitterness and subtle apple and apricots. Decent enough, but rather boring.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Rather aged bomber.
Cloudy light amber color. Aroma of peaches, biscuity malt; fruity and sweet. Flavor slightly sherry-like, with fruit, peaches, apples, honey, and almost no hops. Rather sweet and winey. Ok, but that’s all. Maybe need to get it fresher?

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bomber into pint glass. Firstly, I bout think expecting it to be an imperial pilsner... given the name. Thanks Rogue!... and I swore I wouldn’t buy anything Rogue again, and this is how they repay me. Let hops its good RA. Pours a clear golden with a copper hue and a small, fast fading (though not disappearing) white head. Smells much better than expected... pale malt and very fruity, almost like a belgian or schwarz... can’t really explain it that well. The flavor is just as good. I initially gave both the aroma and the flavor 7s, but had to bump them to 8s. Medium to light body with meidum to low carbonation. Great balanced nice mouthfeel. Overall: this stuff is actually very good. One of the best, most unique pilseners I have ever had. Soo drinkable, so fresh. I want to try this fresh on tap at the brewhouse.
