3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
A very good American Pale Ale, but not as strong as it could be. Great flavor though. Very enjoyable.
I rate this thinking the beer I had was past it’s best before date. I thought it was vinigar on the aroma, and it was almost flat on the pour, The caramel was a on/off appearance neither in the game or out of it and the hop profile and bitterness wasn’t there at all. But....... I’m prepared to concede that it might be past best, and it has promise. maekchu (4104) - Hirakata, JAPAN - JAN 21, 2013
Draught at the Rogue Distillery & Public House, Portland. From notes (March 2010). Flat, uninspired. Has a sort of homebrewy character. Lacking the normal crisp Rogue notes. Not one of their better efforts. boFNjackson (4230) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JAN 8, 2013
Bottle... Poured deep, amber copper/orange with an eggy, off-white head. Received a box of Rogue beers purchased from Rogue as an xmas present. I couldn’t find a bottling date on the bottle, but I would’ve figured Rogue would of only been selling their beer fresh as possible in order to represent themselves well. But this tasted of stale hops and lots of husky, cereal-like grains. Some fruit ale esters too. Low bitterness, mild floral tone with a dab of honey sweetness. Either a bad Pale Ale or not a fresh bottle. PorterPounder (8364) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - AUG 20, 2012
Newport, Or - Rogue Brewery gift shop - 22 oz bomber. Murky dark orange pour, brief off-white head. Aroma is very subdued/ with hints of fresh lake water and a hint of wort. Flavor is mellow with some green tea, a brief hint of caramel, very mild fruit flavor - plums come to mind. Nice slick but thick mouthfeel. Not a flavorfest, but decent.

Tap @ Rogue, Eugene. Nice head with good duration. Color is golden. Aroma and taste are malt, hops, grass and notes of flowers. Brenhophead (695) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - APR 12, 2012
650mL bottle, pours golden with very little head that fades quickly.. not sure how old this bottle is. Caramel malts on the nose with a slight hint of citrus but i think the hop aroma has faded significantly with time. Carbonation is almost none existant so i might sink the rest of the and re review later. reebtogi (6403) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - FEB 18, 2012
650ml bottle pours a pale golden orangeish color with a finger of white head that leaves only small traces of lacing. Aroma is caramel and citrus and floral hops. Taste is caramel malty sweetness with some nice citrus hop bitterness in the finish. Light to medium body and soft carbonation. A nice and flavorful pale ale which was quite tasty.

(Bottle) Pours hazy orange amber with a medium sized white head. The aroma is near medium hoppy with notes of citrus/grapefruit and apricot alongside white bread-like malt. Hints of toast, packman yeast and a light woodsy sting. Quite typical pale ale nose. The flavour is medium hoppy and light to medium malty- Tiny sweet at first with a very dry finish. Lingering, massive bitterness. Tones of apricots, oranges, white bread and light tones of yeast. The mouthfeel is clean and creamy with a soft carbonation. Grapefruity and spicy ending. Light to medium bodied. 5000 (6900) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - NOV 23, 2011
Bottle:   Pale oranish straw in color, very hazy, moderately sudsy white head, spotty lacing.
Combo hop and pale citrus rind on the nose.   Vibrant on the tongue, a little POW as you first take a sip.
&bnsp Malty for a Pale Ale. &Nbsp Not overly bitter, decent amount of citrus peel.   Body and mouthfeel are
moderate to full.   Little dank on the backsidel, likely because I sat on this for a while.   After all
thit time its still pretty tasty. &nbps I think this is an Arlan Harris beer.   Good stuff!   Bording on
IPA, but thats how I like my Pale Ales.   Robust, flavorful, with some good citrus peel aspects that many
Pales dont have.
