(Draught at the Brickskeller) Pours a cloudy amber with a small off-white head. Aroma of caramel, light fruitness, and honey. Flavor of toasted malt, light hops, fruit, and nuts with a somewhat bitter finish. hopscotch (11161) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - JUL 13, 2006
Beer engine (Brickskeller)... Cloudy amber ale with a mid-sized, frothy, off-white head. Excellent retention and thick, uniform lacework. Sweaty, fruity nose with hints of toffee and honey. Malty, fruity flavor. Sweet up front; medium bitter on the backside. Medium-bodied with a creamy mouthfeel and light carbonation. Astringent, bitter finish. illinismitty (2271) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - JUL 13, 2006
Draft a Coles in Buffalo, shared with Rudolph. Pour reddish brown, not much head. Aroma of brown sugar, rye, and hops. Flavor of strong iced tea, caramel, and herbal hops. Finish is dry and herbal. Not balanced and very bitter for an altbier. Overall, it’s ok but not exciting. Kevin (2200) - Montana, USA - JUL 13, 2006
Looks like sun tea, only with a head, a thin head. Light pine and brown sugar nose. Bitter first taste that has some resin to it. Milled flour flavor in the finish. A lot like a Granma’s® cookie, & that ain’t a compliment. Oily mouth feel. There is a bit of blackberry here that is not bad though.

Poured a lightly hazy, amber color with a small, light tan head that left nice lacing on the glass. Aroma of caramel malts, nuts, toffee, and citrus fruit. Taste of nuts, toffee, some vanilla, and a fruity, citrus finish.

On tap at Barley’s Knoxville as part of John’s Locker Stock Series.
Fairly clear brown with a thin soapy head.
Malty toasted aroma.
The overall flavor is bitter with an underlying sweetness that nevr breaks through. Dry in the finish. Decent beer although a bit one dimensional. redlight (2318) - Orlando, Florida, USA - JUL 10, 2006
Has a sweet malt, musty aroma, with some hops in there. Pours a dark amber with lovely white head. Some good malt flavor up front, caramel, then a piney citrusy hop flavor. matta (1140) - Tampa, Florida, USA - JUL 10, 2006
Sampled on Draft last week at Mellow Mushroom West Chase.

A rusty amber body and a thick cap of head resting atop. The aroma brings a sweet but earthy molasses / nuttiness that exudes outwards. Caramel and mild toffee are abundant, the “patented” biscuity “PacMan” yeast, can’t miss that, a woodsy hops, spruce and lite pine resin spiciness. A very drinkable beer, nothing memorable, but well done!
draught. Muddy brown/red body with a small head. Musty, mildly spicy nose which resembles burning leaves. It’s a little chalky with pronounced bitterness and thin, bready, toffee-like malts to balance. The overall taste reminds me of an attic, though somehow It’s still okay to sip on. Magjayran (1378) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - JUL 9, 2006
On tap at Tyler’s Taproom in Durham. Pours a cloudy amber/red color with not much head. Some grassy/earthy notes in the aroma. Good tasting, surprisingly hoppy beer. Lots of earthy bitterness here and a strong malty backbone. Very solid beer but it doesn’t really grab your attention. Another solid Rogue.
