Pours a hazy peach color with yeast in suspension and a ring of white lace. Decent aroma and flavor of malt, yeast and caramel, feels a lot like candy too. Light body, creamy texture, soft carbonation. Surprising for a 5 year old lager.

22 oz bottle, circa 2000, shared in stuporous amazement with beerbuzzmontreal, ClarkVV, MartinT, tiggmtl, olivier, Rastacouere and Simon at the Farmhouse Ales and More! tasting in Montreal. Orangy-apricot slightly hazy hue, virtually no head...big yeasty, vinous, slightly vinegary/cidery nose, interesting if not exactly "right"...body somewhat weak and thin, watery and oxidized not surprisingly, a bit woody and lightly caramel-accented...this is clearly on the dowturn, but theres enough left to indicate that it was probably a superb example at one time...why doesnt Rogue make more stuff like this amongst all of their hopmonsters?

tiggmtl (4544) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 18, 2005
Caramel, apricot, chocolate notes to the aroma. Opaque tan body with very slight, fully-diminishing head that leaves a whisper of lace. Plenty of sedimented yeast in suspension. Caramel, toasty malts are somewhat tired with an overall sweet and fruity flavour. Medium-light body is rather still with low carbonation. Bottle (2000) enjoyed with beerbuzzmontreal, ClarkVV, MartinT, muzzlehatch, olivier, Rastacouere and Simon.

Deep golden amber.Little or no aroma. Good sweet malt flavor.

Rastacouere (6177) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - APR 18, 2005
Y2K bottle. Cloudy sedimented amber. Growing oxidation starts to haunt the aroma. Stale caramel malt doesnt have the conviction it must have had once, it comes out chocolatey, earthy and fruity (apricot), but with weak corners if I may say so. While theres still a biting carbonation, it feels thin and too mineral/rocky for its own good. Watery mineral water flavours (not so flavourful then), slightly buttery, biscuity

My bottle was out dated. Beer was very unusually cloudy and unfiltered? Stale beer sucks. I think this is a limited edition forum, therefore I will not have anything to compare it to.
