Pretty good stuff. Hops are present with some brown ale textures. Overall, a decent brew, another fine brew from Rogue.

A nice unfiltered copper color with a good biege head. First thing noticed in aroma was hops followed by spicy citrus. The taste is spectacular hops then grapefruit followed by a mix of both. In all I would say this one of the best bitters Ive ever had. Highly recomended.

Funny how good, common beers I drink are overlooked for rating after so much time on this site........... I dont think this has a particularly huge aroma, but its pleasant, earthy, and spicy; refined, not at all brutal bitterness, especially for Rogue, over a rich maltiness, and lingering bitter tail; round flavor and decent body; I dont drink enough of this

ruggedman (647) - Portland, Maine, USA - JUN 6, 2005
This beer is phenominal. Best bitter Ive had yet. Perfect hop balance in the taste and aroma. This beer just comes together like they all should. If you like bitters, this is one you cant go without trying.

From bottle. Ill tell you what, I must LOVE american hops. I absolutely love this beer, it is the epitome of an ESB for me, even though it is american style :) I love the spicy hoppyness, I wait for the chance to use Crystal hops for an ESB of my own.

On tap @ Archer Ale House. Very stunning slightly hazy copperish color. A very hopped up bitter, but for some reason it comes across as real tasty. Nice, strong malt backbone that blends well with the hops. Decent white head that doesnt really seem to lace that well.

BuckNaked (1230) - Ann Arbor, Michigan, USA - MAY 29, 2005
Bottle courtesy of an awesome girl: Hazy copper/amber colored body showing a streak of ruby/orange towards the middle of the glass and pale orange towards the edge, with a medium eggshell colored head. Aroma is light citrus/pine/spice, mostly hops, with some sweet buttery malts and a hint of yeast showing through. Taste is spicy/citrus/floral hops taste up front, though more than I would expect for an ESB its much less bitter than an IPA, opening up to notes of bitter tea, grass, straw, light toasted malt, dusty wheat, light lemon, and a hint of orange zest. Finishes dry & bitter, with hops sticking to the tongue long after the last sip and hint of waxy honeycomb as it warms. Medium bodied, though it fells very creamy and full in the mouth, moderate carbonation.

Lizabeth (360) - east falmouth, Massachusetts, USA - MAY 26, 2005
Bottle. Light copper with a thick beige head that left nice lacing all down the glass. Intense aromas of citrus and pine hops dominate the nose. The flavor is pink grapefruit, orange marmalade, sour nectarines, wheat toast and honey. I found this to be a smooth, very drinkable beer-not nearly as bitter as the name implies.

Darkover (1535) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - MAY 20, 2005
Orange color with a huge beige head. Mild hop and malt aroma. Nicely bitter flavor and long finish.

Yummy. Hazy, orange-brown color. Hops are definitely noticebly fruitier than other beers of comparable hopsiness that Ive had. This beer packs a lot more flavor overall. On tap at Barleys in Asheville, NC!
