From a 22 oz. distinctive shaped capped Rogue brown bottle, with a chicken and fish symbols on the side of bottle, which I’m guessing means a good pairing with chicken and fish. Made a very good appearance, poured a hazy dirty golden with a large frothy white head that reduced to a thin bubbly lacing with a small amount of sticking. Had a bread yeasty aroma with a little fruity banana as well and a faint herbal nuttiness, if that makes sense. Good carbonation and a creamy full bodied mouth feel, good drinkability. Had a herbal hoppiness at first with some metallic notes, a mildly biting bitterness, a dry yeastiness, an underlining crystal, fresh bread maltiness and a grainy dry finish with the metallic notes returning in the aftertaste. rm0312 (36) - Idaho, USA - MAR 12, 2007
Poured from a bottle - bright amber, almost gold color with a moderate head that dissipated quickly. A good hop aroma with some fruit. A crisp feel with every sip. A lasting bitter finish with a little apple mixed in. Not Rogue’s best brew but still very good. Would mix well with a St. Patty’s day meal.

Slightly hazy straw colour with a nice thick head. Herbal nose with clean, strawlike pale malt notes. Clean fresh bread malts on the palate with herbal hops, a light lemony character and a hint of mushroom. A bit of spritziness in the finish highlights a slight grainy accent to the pale malts. It’s hitting the spot. Cirrhosis (1283) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 14, 2009
"Brew pours clear gold with a noisy white cap, the retention for the style is good. Aroma is pleasant, apple, grainy malts, metal, and mild Euro skunk hops. Flavour is very nice light and crisp and has a very sweet clean finish. Beer feels light in the mouth and has good carbonation. The grainy malt character is balance well with the light hop character of the beer, I think they nailed it perfect for the style. Apples and grass work their way in to the flavor with the odd faint skunk. I love this beer to much I think, it is perfect for just being a lager and I would find myself drinking myself stupid with it if it didn’t cost me $10.00 a bottle."

Hay and grainy but clean nose. Golden color, medium head. It tastes of dandelion and honey on a bed of hay. Clover finish. Head and shoulders above other lagers. Very memorable. dmtroyer (431) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 28, 2008
22oz. Pours a very clear golden yellow with a white head that is quickly gone. I cannot believe how much I like this beer. Nose is sweet breads for days with cake like yeasty presence. Body reminds me very much of some of my favorite grower champagnes: loads of yeasty goodness with a strong citrus and almost yellow-cake like presence with strong mineral flavors to boot. The mouthfeel also mimics a champagne mouthfeel with some coating viscosity, awesome carbonation and stronger acids. This is a light beer for the wine lover and way underrated. jsmerig (1719) - Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 28, 2011
Aroma is of light toasty malt. Appearance is straw yellow with active carbonation and a foamy head. Taste is light and malty with a bit of lemony hoppiness. The finish is very crisp with just enough hops to offset the light sweetness of the malt.
