Thin white top on an active golden body.(Czech.pils yeast...wow no Pacman) Mild, carbonated lager with a light sweet/tangy finish. Good. stchloe (1118) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JUL 29, 2008
I cannot get over this beer. This is my favorite lager. Period. Has occasionally trumped darker ales. iamqueensblvd (247) - , Iowa, USA - FEB 18, 2009
I think this would be a very good summer beer. It poors a nice golden color and it has a nice apple hint at the finish. JesseM (1158) - Margaritaville, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 28, 2009
650ml bottle from the LCBO spring seasonal release. The bottle claims it has 28 IBU’s, not 25, which would technically make it a Pilsener. Pours a very nice gold with a huge white, rocky head. Aroma: Kind of odd actually, apple, sweetness, home-baked bread, barley, crisp pils malt, and some very nice hop presence. The flavour is a quite a delightful blend of all the above mentioned characteristics, and it is quite reminiscent of a Euro premium lager, but in a good way. Nice hops in the finish and aftertaste. Nice malty bready flavour the whole way through that I particularly like. There’s a touch of sourness in here, but not in a spoiled or Bretty way, it’s hard to describe. It’s similar to the smell of boiling mash. Over-all a very well done beer and another good one from Rogue. THANK YOU ROGUE ALES FOR PUTTING UP WITH ALL THE LCBO BULLS***. tomthompson89 (1983) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 11, 2009

UPDATED: JAN 9, 2011 Aroma: Sweet caramel and bread maltiness with hints of floral hops.
Appearance: Hazy Gold with a frothy white head
Taste: Medium sweetness with light bitter finish.
Palate: Medium body with a creamy texture, lively carbonation and long finish.
Overall: Meh...it’s a good enough beer, but nothing outstanding. Certainly drinkable, with a few hoppy suprises on the way, but nothing exceptional I’d seek out or stock on a regular basis. matthewjk (1138) - San Diego, California, USA - NOV 14, 2010
Poured piss yellow from 220z bottle - By hell I say, I really like this! I purchased this bottle with the understanding that I was going to be disappointed. How wrong I was my friends. This lager captures the essence of wheat in all its glory! What a beautiful bouquet of wheat, sweetness and yeast. I’m not particularly a fan of wheat beers, but this humble lager is a wheat beer moreover. Damn, I want to move to Ireland now and find out they drink nothing like this. This is a hard won and well deserving 3.7! My props to Rogue for trying something that is a wee bit out of the ordinary. troopie (2497) - Munchen an der Willamette, Oregon, USA - MAR 20, 2011
Draught. Deep yellow pour with thick head. Aroma is grass and new wet veld. Pleasant hop and malt balance. A premium lager that is really premium. gramity (1706) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - MAR 29, 2011
Poured from a bomber into a dimpled mug. Nice pour - a clear golden with a touch of amber. The head was two fingers thick, foamy, and white. Retention and lacing were both above average. The aroma was a bit earthy and plenty grainy. I also get some bready notes. There is a bit of citrus and hops present. The taste is crisp and fresh with decent maltiness. I get notes of green apple and lemon that are balancing well with the beer. There are some faint euro hops in the finish. The mouthfeel was fairly thick for a lager and the carbonation was moderate to high but suited the beer well. This is one of the best lagers I’ve ever had. nike (966) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 17, 2014
draft, golden pour, thick head. Great tasting lager brew, clean crisp brew.
