Rogers’ is one of my few truly favourite beers. Suitable to any environment. DrunkenCumquat (86) - Canberra, AUSTRALIA - AUG 29, 2005
Bottled. Great fruity aroma and taste, mixed in with some nice roasted malt notes. Good head that stays pretty frothy through the whole glass, providing a good finish. Doesn’t taste too watery given the low alcohol content. A damn fine job, one of my favourites! RichardHFish (11) - - JUL 12, 2011
I love this beer, it is definitely my go-to beer, which is saying quite a bit.
Appearance:Poured from the bottle, the lovely clear, deep red amber ale has a white-ish head, while it lasts (this is where it loses a point, for the lack of head retention).
Aroma: This has the aroma that is almost characteristic of Little Creatures, a mix of floral and cirtrus hop scents, which some sweetness coming through.
Taste: To me this amber ale is almost perfectly balanced, just slightly tipping toward the hop side. There is the caramel and mostly malty sweetness as well as the floral, citrus and tropical fruit flavours from the hops. The malt profile is somewhat less noticeable than the description would lead you to believe, but it still tastes amazing.
Palate:This is possibly the only area that Rogers falters in, the body is a tiny bit lacking, but that is expected from a beer of only 3.8& ABV. The finish is slightly bitter and short, but it still leaves you wanting for more. The carbonation, however, is right on the money, just right.
Overall: Like I said, I love this beer. Being a mid you can knock these back all afternoon and not feel any the worse for ware, while still drinking a truly great tasting beer. The only negative is the price, at $56.90 a carton (the same price as the full strength Pale Ale) it is a bit steep, but then again, it’s such a good beer it’s probably worth it. Love it!

UPDATED: SEP 14, 2012 Bardzo dobre miedziane Ale z Australii. Kolor intensywny, piana mocna i zbita, Aromaty karmelowe i sporo nut kwiatowych w zapachu. W smaku chmiel goryczkowy wysuwa się na pierwszeństwo. Zaskoczyło mnie bardzo pozytywnie to bursztynowe piwo

pours a clear dark amber with a nice frothy off white head, aroma of toffee and floral hops, taste is smooth and sweet toffee with a hint of chocolate and fruit, yet manages to stay dry, crisp and refreshing. more complex then i was expecting, really love this beer!

This is about as good as it gets @3.8% can sit on this all night or just as a starter I love two before ordering. Danev76 (505) - AUSTRALIA - AUG 11, 2014
Nice fruity aroma. Dark amber colour with reasonable head. Some malty flavours balanced nicely with hops. Light body with medium carbonation. OlJuntan64 (1265) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - SEP 5, 2002
Light tan, medium size, short lasting head, over a dark copper xtal clear coloured beer. Serious fruity peach and passionfruit with faint hints of malt and musty cellar yeast aroma - pretty amazing really for such a light beer. Body is light to thin with short mild fruity zingy and bitter start. Middle is mild dry typical english ale but a bit on the flat side for my taste. Finish is a very light sweet fading to ultra weak cordial. All in all still quite a nice beer especially if you are into light ale styles. TheGrandMaster (2335) - Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - DEC 24, 2008
Bottle. A clear dark copper with an off-white foamy head. A warming malt aroma, hints of raisin. A delicious floral and malty palate with a smooth swallow. Yum, brilliant for just 3.8%.
