UPDATED: APR 20, 2007 12 oz. bottle. I tried this ale for my first time tonight and loved it. It’s a fitting first review. It pours up a nice amber with an enduring head. The aroma is light, but pleasant. The mouthfeel was wonderful, smooth with light carbonation. There’s some complexity here with some sweetness initially followed by a mildly bitter finish. That 6.6% alcohol is quite noticeable in the finish, but not unpleasantly so. Overall a superb beverage from Rogue that I could easily drink regularly.
rerate: 7/4/7/3/15 - Averaged with the old rating of 4.1 and rounded up to a 3.9. antzman (316) - Clarksville, Indiana, USA - OCT 13, 2005
22 oz bomber. This pours a nice copper/amber with a thin off white head. The aroma is a bit of citrus and hops. Taste is initial citrus with nice malty finish. Wish I had some PacMan yeast for my brews, but this was a good version of a maibock Evster64 (107) - Kempner, Texas, USA - OCT 13, 2005
A cool-looking logo, a tough-sounding name....this has to be good. ....NOT. Aroma: Very little to speak of, but alchohol is noticeable in a light peppery odor. ... Appearance, amber/cloudy, sustained head. ... Flavor: A hint of citrus at first, then you get a rush of alchohol and wood chips. Palate: Flavor stays with you a while, but again, alchohol ruins what might be an interesting experience. Dry and bitter, slightly acidic finish. ... Overall, a big disappointment. The name and the label aren’t represented here. albert007 (415) - Penobsquis, New Brunswick, CANADA - OCT 11, 2005
Deep amber color with nice everlasting foamy off-white head & lace. Sweet aroma caramel, fruity with hints of piney hops. Medium, & creamy body. Flavor has hints of yeastiness, a tiny bit of toast, some caramel sweetness finishes with a hop bitterness. Fit for a king, or a dead guy.

Dark orange with small off white head. Decent mouthfeel, with a thin malt flavor being overcome by hop flavors and aroma developing into a mildly bitter finish. One of Rogue’s most widely distributed and enjoyed offerings, and for good reason.

Hazy orange colour. Thin white head. Citric, hoppy toffee nose. Fruity, almondy bitter flavour. Quite refreshing, interesting brew. marcus (10326) - Sacramento, California, USA - OCT 8, 2005
On tap at Rogue brewery. This amber ale poured with a nice off-white head. The flavor was light, pleasant, crisp and clean. Not as pretentious as some of the other Rogue ales. harrisoni (18801) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - OCT 7, 2005
650ml bottle from Morrisons. Dark orange clear beer with lasting beige head. Intense US hop nose with hints of chocolate limes. When I say hints I mean completely unsubtle flavours. Really nice in mouth, got good strong mouthfeel with malts and alcohol coming through. Then smooth choc lime finish with drying intense hoppiness. Superb with good lasting flavours BetterRedFred (65) - Los Alamos, New Mexico, USA - OCT 6, 2005
Wow! Something really different. Color lives up to billing - deep honey indeed. Head and activity were disappointing, taste wasn’t. Nice, genuinely hoppy ale taste, without the usual overwhelmingly bitter attack and finish. Almost sweet for crying out loud! Maybe the honey color comes from the real thing afterall? Surely not an everday ale for most people, but a WAY TASTY occasional treat for serious beer lovers all the same. Excellent brew! Try it back to back with Rogue American Amber for a nice, stark contrast in tastes. worthole (1) - firepit, Delaware, USA - OCT 6, 2005 does not count
Hello butter, i love what rogue is about and the amount of different styles they have but maybe they should have a di-acytel rest once in a while.
