"another low-hop pale ale. better than 4 x 4, due to the crisp malty sweetness. otherwise, not a good example of an apa. Enjoyable enough beer, but fairly boring."

I picked up the bottle at the Brewery in 2004. It had a cool label on it. I honestly don’t remember what the beer was like. But I have the bottle to prove that I had it. I remeber it being basic but still great.

Pours with a nice deep gold coloring. The white head faded quickly. The aroma was honey and wheat maltiness. Flavor is very subtle and well balanced. The bread crust taste also has a hint of grapefruit. Very subtle and enjoyable. Thanks, Flipbrewer for the hook up.

Nice citrusy hop aroma. Good hop bite throughout with a touch of malt for balance. Finishes to the drier side. Quite enjoyable.

A nice mellow, session pale ale. Very drinkable, very smooth. Tastes like a strong pilsener. I like it.

Mild aroma slightly hoppy. Flavor is of hops and a raisiny malt backing which I found interesting, and quite liked.

Lighter hop flavor than I expected from a Rouge beer. ’Chris’ had a our yeasty aftertaste, but enjoyable nonetheless. It would make a great session beer.

Pours a dark golden color with a small white head and no lacing. Grassy and light citrus hop aroma. Also sweet malts are present in the aroma. A nice balance here, nothing over the top. Begins malty sweet and light bitterness throughout.

22 oz bottle thanks to Jeff (radiomgb). Pours a bottle conditioned (lots of sediment) hazy deep golden/yellow with a foamy white head flecked with yellow. Smells grassy, herbal and sweet, hints of lightly bitter yellow fruit (starfruit comes to mind, kiwi, touch of lemon). Hops are aromatic but not in your face. Flavor is malty sweet (angel food cake, cookie dough) with some late bitterness from the hops, though not too much of it. Wonderful flavor and the body is medium with a smooth almost creamy palate. Fairly crisp finish, but I would ask for a bit more hoppy bitterness, as it does stay quite malty and sweet.

apricot like hop aroma, golden hue, nutty and malty, nice earthy bitterness, light in body
