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.

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.

I must say Im a fan of Rogue beers. This is a good all-around ale. Easy to drink, no offensive flavors or aromas. Light to medium bodied.

DaytonAE86 (6) - Dayton, Ohio, USA - OCT 31, 2005 does not count
Initial: Pours milky, light amber color. Nose that smells more hoppy than citruicy, hints of chocolate/caramel. This beer is smooth at first, with a very nice mouthfeel, citrus flavor, grapefruit, going down, I can pick up hints of roasted hops, and something else. Finishes smooth, with an almost overpowering flavor of grapefruit, yet there are hints of something else, tea? coffee? Overall, Im left with a very smooth beer, nothing too complex, yet it needs refinement, too much of a grapefruit-ish aftertaste. Good beer overall. Very good, would buy again. Purchased @ WPAFBs Class 6 (first beer rated)

UPDATED: APR 9, 2007 bottle. This pours an obvious light amber shade. Its a little cloudy and has a dense white head. Theres a citrusy hop nose with a good sweet foundation. The body is pretty thin with some surpressed bitterness. The finish is a bit more eventful, an almost sugary sweet finish and some sparkling hops come through along with a tad of roasted barley. [April 8 07] wow. Been a long time since I visited this puppy, but it showed up in my local grocery store so it was just a matter of time. Its a pretty solid American amber. The hop presence is strong for the style with grapefruit accents and even a hint of pine. Assertive biscuit flavor is noted along with toffee and earth. After four or five of these, the beer gets a little sticky for what it is, but I had little trouble polishing off a sixer. Stand up session ale.

Mellow, well balanced amber with just enough complexity to keep it interesting. Amber color, nice hop-malt balance.

yayforbeer (753) - Orange Park, Florida, USA - OCT 25, 2005
Red/amber beer with a small tan head. Light hoppy aroma. Flavor is very full with malts and plenty of hops and a bitter finish. Medium to full body. Some caramel and some grapefruit. Not spectacular, but a well done, high-intensity example of the style.

Bottle. Poured out a light, cloudy brown, with just some hints of red and orange, with a medium tan head. Lots of malt with just a bit of hops on the aroma, possibly a little citrus and tea there also. Full bodied and complex on the palate. The flavor was malty with some refreshing lemon and tea leaf flavors, and bitter hops on the finish. Great beer for watching football. I will buy more of these.

Quixote18 (236) - Johnson City, Tennessee, USA - OCT 23, 2005
Poured from a bottle into a shaker glass. It has a pretty, almost chestnut brown color with a cream-colored head that mostly diminishes. Very nice lacing, though. Initial nosing reveals light herbal hop aromas that give way to maltyness (sp?). The tase is simple but good, very clean with a pleasant hop finish. Id recommend trying (at least) one of these.

Decent balance, full flavor, can taste both the hops and malt, decent bitter finish. Not bad, but all ambers taste fairly simimlar to me.
