This bottled brew poured a large sized head of mostly diminishing fine to medium sized bubbles that left behind a poor lacing. The body was carbonated hazy and dark orange colored. The aroma was mild with musty and spicy notes. The aroma could be smelled from a distance as soon as the cap was popped. The mouth feel was initially mellow then the spices kicked in in the finish.. The flavor contained notes of soft caramel nutmeg pumpkin and herbs. It was actually an OK beer just different and hard to get a handle on. hotstuff (5173) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - JUN 27, 2004
Bottle. Medium white fizzy head and fine sized bubbles that completely dissipated. Malty, sweet, honey and spicy aroma. Sweet and spicy flavor. Smooth palate, light bodied with no lacing. cigarsnbeer (146) - Valley City, North Dakota, USA - JUN 17, 2004
I like chamomile tea, and I REALLY like beer. However, I don’t know if I like the two together. This is like the polar opposite of the old Reese peanut butter cup ad-"Two great tastes that go great together." These are two great tastes that should have a restraining order on one another.

A very unique and pleasing herb beer. This ale has a distinct chamomile aroma, like the tea. Pours slightly cloudy golden with a moderate head that fades fairly quickly. Good flavor that accents the chamomile, but lacks depth of hops. Not great, but definately worth a try. duff (5484) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUN 4, 2004

Brewery. Really odd, tastes OK though. Definite chamomile tea flavour, but once again lacks depth. I suppose you could argue that at least Rogue are trying new things, this is a bit too clean and polished, as well as being quite different.
Hazy, golden body with almost no head. Interesting floral, fruity nose of spiced, herbal apple cider, wild flowers, light berries and clover honey. The body is light, crisp and clean with virtually no finish. More and more herbal cider in the flavor, complimented by the strong floral chamomile. A really interesting beer with good flavors, a nice aroma and a lot of unique character. I’m glad I tried it, but, needless to say, I left the case at the store.

Innnnnteresting, to say the least. I usually don’t like spice beers but this one is quite good. And someone needs to send in a picture of the new bottle. I picked this up at the Rogue Brewery not knowing what chamomile was, but after a sip I thought, "Oh, like the tea!"
Pours a nice amber color with a nice head that didn’t last long but had lots of carbonation.
Scent is (suprise) chamomile. As is the taste. But it’s not overpowering at all. It’s funny; the flavor is light and it’s well ballanced, but I really can’t pick out many other flavors other than to say it’s spicy.
Palate is pretty full and well-carbonated. Overall this is good and definately worth a try. I’m glad I had it but really don’t see myself having any more of them.

Yellow gold color with a white head. Very unique aroma with chamomile, cinnamon, nutmeg, and even some pumpkin aromas. The taste has the same characteristics as the aroma and is sweet with hints of honey. It’s nicely spiced and contains a faint citrus that lingers nicely with the spice. mardermax (71) - santa cruz, California, USA - MAY 3, 2004
Poured from draft at the Rogue brew pub in san fran- Yellow flowery color, small thin head, smelt of cold chamomile tea, honestly. The taste wasn’t flavorly disappointing, tasted just like chamomile tea, honestly. Not really my style, not that hoppy, not that bitter. Interesting experimentation, adn i’m into that, it just didn’t twist my nipple all that much. beerinmarch (2830) - Washington, USA - APR 23, 2004
UPDATED: DEC 4, 2004 Updated 12-4-04, this brew wasn’t nearly as amazing as i remember it, maybe the tap version is a bit different from the bottled version. This brew was way to light, not much for any malt flavor, the chamomile comes through nice but this brew needs some beer flavor and it was really lacking.
Amazing Beer, had it on tap at the rogue brewery. Light in color with small amount of head. Chamomile taste and aroma shine through. A very sweet beer that really won me over even though im not a tea fan. Rogue can pull anything off.
