22 oz. Uninspiring, unintelligent, and just really not what you’d expect from the family of Rogue...though, I haven’t been impressed much with them in the past few years anyways. Besides the point, a touch of roasty malt, a light spice hop note, and honestly, some water! Boring.

Bottle. Clear copper color with a tan head. Subtle aroma is light piney hops, light roasted malt. Light/medium body with a chaulky rough mouthfeel. Stale, sour wheat bread flavor with little else. Not very good.

There is a lot of butter in this one. Wow, this beer has a dark brown/slight orange color to it. Very little head. Seems more like an English Strong than a brown ale. Very bland flavor. The butter flavor does not come out in the taste as much as I thought it would. Malty taste, maybe I need to let this one warm up. Seems to be very buttery, but this one is thin so a thick palate does not compliment the butter as it should, but thankfully it does not. Overall, a very bland beer with malt and butter taste and aroma. Not so great, but not horrible. Be prepared to drink a watery brown ale. The three other people say they taste coffee, but I do not. Wow, that malt is strong.

Huge aroma of diacetly. Lots of buttered popcorn, perhaps some malty sweetness. Pours amber with a thin head with great retention. Lots of butter in the flavors too. Some toasted malts. Way too much buttered popcorn in this one.

22. Thanks, Riverside! Pours a deep brown with a thin, brief tannish creamy head. Big buttery, butterscotchy, wet leaf-y nose. Body’s a little grainy and on the light side of medium. Fake movie popcorn butter comes roaring back on the mid-palate along with wet dead leaves, and some butterscotch. Weird acetic finish. Bad, bad effort at QA here.

Enniskillen (2058) - Bakersfield, California, USA - OCT 23, 2008
Light brown with a thin off white head. Aroma is light caramel, coffee, hops, peanuts, toffee. Taste is a light fruity hoppiness followed by caramel, and light toffee. Interesting beer.
