This is easily my favorite every day beer. The aroma is very clean and crisp. with a good malty smell. The aroma just makes me want to drink this beer. P.S. Really cool label!! intelbrewer (4) - USA - NOV 16, 2005 does not count
Love it, my current favorite commercial beer (American anyway). Not really a beer that one can categorize, but if a bunch of Germans wanted to brew an ale for Americans, this would be the beer they come up with.

I’m not sure this is really a bock. And it tastes kind of wierd.... BUT, I like wierd stuff. Light golden/hazy amber color. Thick and sweet, with a dry finish. Nothing else quite like it. The Christopher Walken of beers.

Got a Growler yesterday...very good...not as good as it was on tap but better than the bottle. Will use great Dead guy Growler to homebrew in. Poured nice/strong...good brew to watch the Celts win yesterday donbusa (13) - Jefferson, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 10, 2005
A rich, robust flavor with a pleasant after-taste. The 1/2 gallon glass "growler" or bottle is a classic and a must for any collection. A good beer but as a stout/porter lover this ranks #4 on my list of Rogue Ales.

Poured with small soapy off-white head that was mostly diminishing. Body is a hazy amber color, a little cloudy. Nose is of hops, malt and caramel. Initial flavor was lighty bitter. Finish was moderately sweet and moderatly bitter and average duration. This is a decent beer. DerWeg (1678) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 9, 2005
Extremely tasty & balanced Maibock - nutty roasty malts taste sweet and refreshing, and smooth hops favor structure over prominence. Aroma spicy and very soft/floral-hoppy. Nice dark nutty amber. Simplicity over intensity. Comparable to Creemore UrBock in its delicate flavorful balance. steprous99 (28) - Orlando, Florida, USA - NOV 9, 2005
good beer, a little pale, nice bottle label, brewed in oregon I believe, not as pale as sierra nevada, just the right amount of paleness, not really worthy of the higher price, a good simple pale beer that isn’t too strong. if you can get it at a decent price it’s a nice drink. wheelzr (4) - Virginia, USA - NOV 9, 2005 does not count
As far as ale goes, this is my favorite. It has all the bite of and hops of ale, but also has a smooth crisp caramel malt like aftertaste. One of the few ales i could drink a few of in one night Storm (2684) - Amager, DENMARK - NOV 9, 2005
35,5 cl bottle. No yeast in bottom. Amber colour with a weak white head. Malty aroma with notes of caramel. Very fruity flavour of melon end up with a great taste. Overall a very easy-drinking beer.
