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. newtrip (54) - USA - NOV 9, 2005
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 (1695) - 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.

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. MrRain (472) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - NOV 9, 2005
Umm, yummy. Carmel and hops. A smoothy oily finish, very malty and overall, very interesting. natrat (66) - Ucluelet, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 6, 2005
650 ml bottle. Great bottle design. Pours very nicely with a thick white head. Colour is red ale with a pinkish tinge. Smell is nice, with little hop aroma. Spicy smelling. Saazy. Unfortunately, has some off flavours. Maybe a bit stale. "Tastes like basement homebrew," was one remark I heard. Brew was cloying and oversweet. Hate to say it, but 3 out of 3 of us declared it a dumper. SoLan (1550) - Florida, USA - NOV 6, 2005
Amber. Insignificant head. Well balanced aroma of rich malt and resinous hops. Big malt with hops in the finsh. Medium, creamy body. Nothing complex, but very good brew.
