This was a nice pale ale- not as junipery as I expected- not Rogues fault though. Maybe I will try it again, the flavor did have an otherness too it- and I like that its subtle rather and overpowering- similer in that respect to Aprihop.

shintriad (701) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 16, 2005
Strong caramel, grapefruit, herbal notes. "Saffron" descriptor is apt. Lots of pine and other herbs, mild hop sting and a bit of malt for balance. Reminds one of a drive through the Pacific Northwest. One-dimensional? Perhaps, but still a quality brew thats a bit underrated. This was a Yellow Snow, for the record.

dwyerpg (5884) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - JUN 8, 2005
This smells great. Hoppy, zesty, citrusy. Quick disappearing head. I couldnt tell you how much juniper affects the taste, but however it does, its nice. A good drink even in summer.

Crit (3915) - Surrey, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 29, 2005
Deep gold,thin white head.Good malt nose. Light malt flavor with scant hops. Dry bitterspice finish. Underflavored for this brewer

JahNoth (1039) - Rochester, New York, USA - MAY 26, 2005
Pours a light golden in color with a fluffy white head. Grassy aroma with som classic rogue yeast smells. Light bodied with a tingly mouthfeel. Slight grassy hop flavor with a touch of citric bitterness, decent malt backbone, with a spicy bitter finish. Nice brew.

jgentgesdo (693) - Tulsa, Oklahoma, USA - MAY 19, 2005
Pours nice cloudy yellow with fair white head. Floral, piney nose. The flavor is very flowery, flavorful hops with mild malt balance and very little bitterness. Easy drinking and nice finish. Yum.

Dickinsonbeer (5074) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - MAY 17, 2005
I kind of liked this beer overall. Very clean and easy to drink. Not nearly as much juniper or pine as I would have thought. Moderately hoppy all around. Good smooth finish and an overall low to medium carbonation.

Schultsc (572) - San Diego, California, USA - MAY 17, 2005
This was a dissappointment. Not a bad beer overall, but I was expexting a juniper ale and couldnt really detect the juniper at all. A bit light for the style which makes it come across as weak and uninteresting. Hopefull they will vamp up the juniper flavor in years to come.

auerbrau (3203) - Ithaca, New York, USA - MAY 6, 2005
Clear dark gold pour, with a nice clean white head. Piquant leafy aroma. Typical pale ale, with a resiny aftertaste. Very smooth and clean crisp finish.

22 oz. bottle from Mr. Liquor. "Yellow Snow" package. Yellow/Orange with very thin head. Not much lacing to speak of. Aromas of hoppy citrus and evergreen spice. Spicy flavor, very hoppy, very bitter.
