Bomber bottle. Pours a hazy dark amber with a small frothy head that was mostly diminishing. Medium hoppy aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture. Good well balanced hoppy flavor with a long smooth finish. Good brew. larsniclas (7069) - Billdal, SWEDEN - NOV 19, 2005
Dark amber with a small beige head.
Flowery, sweetish, hoppy aroma.
Hoppy and grassy flavour with some toffee. Late, fine bitterness. rlgk (18850) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - NOV 17, 2005
Nice amber color, lasting offwhite head. Very nice floral aroma, some fruity and malty notes, toffee and with creamy notes. Mild nutty flavor, some elder, fruits and floral notes. A little more bitter after a while, quite dry finish. Balanced and a very nice ale. tlitt2 (58) - Lexington, Kentucky, USA - NOV 16, 2005
UPDATED: NOV 19, 2005 Beautiful dark amber when observed with back light. Smells similar to other rogue beers. A sweet malty/ nutty aroma with a little hops. Tastes very smooth, with a touch of toffee, a little itty bit of hops, and even a little coffee in there as well. Could see this with food or just a perfect session beer.

Bottle, as Seat Otter Red. Dark reddish/orange, small but thick tan head - looks great. Aroma of nutty malt and hops, pleasant. Mouthfeel is medium and active. Taste is a silky sweet malt, nutty, with a more than expected bitterness. Nice lingering bitterness in finish, but short. Nice citrus notes as well. Nothing wrong here, just a good solid ale that would be a session choice for me for sure.

Amber in colour. With off-white head. Fruity and hoppy aroma. A little roasted flavour, some nutty flavour aswell. Mouthfeel is bitter, but not to bitter. Very nice. Wolfenstein (96) - Sarasota, Florida, USA - NOV 10, 2005
Bottle: Pours a rich amber color. Nose that smells hoppy. This beer is smooth at first, with a very nice citrus flavor. Finishes smooth, with an almost overpowering flavor of citrus. Overall, I’m left with a very smooth beer. OK. alabamajohn (67) - Alabama, USA - NOV 7, 2005
This is one of the few good American brews I can readily obtain here in AL. Nice cloudy amber pour with white head. Fuity and nutty up front. Hops and more hops prevail in the end. Smooth mouthfeel. Good stuff. FistFullOfCats (163) - Raleigh, North Carolina, USA - NOV 2, 2005
UPDATED: NOV 8, 2005 Bottle. Another solid one from rogue. Pours orange-amber, very attractive. Not too thin mouth feel and smooth finish. Citrusy and not too hoppy. Great flavor. Likerighteous (120) - Pflugerville, Texas, USA - NOV 2, 2005
I keep coming back to this one. It gets no demerits from me. Pours cloudy amber with an up front frehness like early summer. Gains complexity and texture if allowed to warm. Robust finish leaves me craving another. Modestly priced. Cool package.
