I’ll be honest and say I was expecting a ruby red ale with a ferocious assault of juniper that would have had me reeling imagining I have been attacked by a dutchman (lowercase D for deliberate) armed with Jenever. It appeared much lighter than that with a coarse white head. The juniper in the aroma is subtle, smelling more like a cheeky pale ale with grapefruit and apricot aromas. In the flavour again I was wondering where the juniper was and then I sat and thought about some of the better gins I had tasted. In those the juniper was a balancing item for the other botanicals such as lemon peel, coriander, cubeb berries, chamomile, rose petals, licorice and so forth. Here it is again a subtle balancer for more tart citrus and chlorophyll characters lent by the hops. But you add them to a whole and you get a fresh pale ale with a real astringent bitterness that carries the finish long after it would have been due to expire. I think of this beer as an interesting exemplar of a spicy ale that could have used a little more juniper if I’m honest.
Poured a hazy honey-brown with a 5mm light tan sudsy head that diminished slowly to a blotchy cap that laced poorly. Carbonation moderate, slow and coarse. Aroma of slight tartness and possibly honey; not inviting. Taste starts with slight sweetness followed by moderately strong tartness. Light body. Smooth with slight spicy tartness on a short finish.

Copenhagen 24/5. 2017. 35,5 cl bottle from Skjold Burne. Lumberjack with a mug of beer on the label. Pours hazy golden yellow with white head. No Lacing. Strong aroma of Juniper with weak notes of citrus. Vegetables with herbal bitterness. Soft carbonation and slightly thick palate. Flavor is medium sweet followed by herbal bitterness. Aftertaste is bitter. Reminds me of a more sweet version of some of the New Nordic Beers where they put herbs from half a Plantation into the boilers. Not my favorite Rogue.

Flat out boring. Some earthy hoppyness, but no sign of juniper. Sub-standard pale ale for Rogue. ALIBALI (1989) - Kiel, GERMANY - FEB 17, 2017
