ben4321 (6735) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - JUN 1, 2011
Location: Draft at Rogue Public House in San Fran, 5/12/11

Aroma: It has a nice crisp, clean hop nose with some bread, grass, and some lemon
Appearance: It pours a cloudy golden color with a decent sized white head
Flavor: Clean and crisp hops, some sweetness balances the hop bitterness
Palate: The drinkability was high, with a light and somewhat creamy body
Overall Impression: This was a pretty decent german style pils, this is fairly bitter for the style. It was quite drinkable. I liked this one well-enough, but it certainly didn’t blow me away by any means.

Poured a hazy golden color with a small white head that left light lacing on the glass. Aroma of citrus, dough, and caramel. Taste of citrus, light caramel malts, dough, with a crisp, dry, bitter finish. Quaffable.

I was kind of surprised at this one. Most of the Rogue Locker Stock have been rather over the top strong ales, but this one seemd be more about finess and balance. Golden orange, with a white head. Citrusy, vaguely sweet, with a bit of earth in the aroma. Nice crisp bitter bite up front, followed by a nice sweet edge. Nice juicy palate. citrusy to the end, and slightly bitter finish. Draft at Barley’s, Knoxville.

Slightly hazy golden coloured body with orange highlights and a nice tan head. Aroma of pure hops - some grapefruit and mostly piney hops are noticeable. Medium-bodied; Full of great hop flavour - all with a nice malt backbone - I can’t believe I’m actually liking this Rogue beer! Aftertaste is all bittering, more hop flavour than anything else, but it comes across very nicely. Overall, a damn good Rogue beer, probably the first I’ve had - after 20 or least one has to be good! I sampled this beer on draught at RFD in Washington D.C. on 15 December 2006.

Undated notes: Pours gold with a nice pillowy head. Smells of crisp, dry pilsner malt, some perfume, wildflowers, spicy. Tastes peppery and dry with a nice full bodied mouthfeel.

riversideAK (6265) - Shoreline, Washington, USA - AUG 12, 2008
Bubbly golden beer with a fluffy head. Huge grassy hop aroma. Flavor is biscuity, bready, and very grassy. The bitterness is pretty big for a pils as there is a strong lingering grassy bitterness. Actually pretty damn bitter, and thats how I like it.

TheBeerGod (6261) - Newport News, Virginia, USA - JUN 4, 2005
UPDATED: JUN 5, 2005 Draft at the Capital Ale House. Body is golden amber with a small white head. Nose is fruity and hoppy but not overdone hoppiness like most Rogue beers are. Hops, big fruit notes, light caramel, and light grassy notes. Taste is hoppy and malted with light caramel, grass, some hints of straw, and big fruit notes. Berrries and lighter citrus seem to make up the fruitiness. Body is medium with a moderate carbonation feel. Finishes with more grass, hops, light maltiness and fruit. Not bad!

Tap at Hop Devil Grill - I know that all Rogue beers taste the same, and still, every time I’m presented with one I haven’t tried, I just have to drink it (kind of like those wackos that own dozens of copies of Catcher in the Rye) - what the hell is wrong with me? - not that this was bad - not that it’s really much like a pilsner, either - rogue just ought to call this (and most of their other beers, for that matter) an IPA because that’s pretty much what this tastes like - there is a light, slightly fruity sweetness to this that is somewhat like a maibock, so I guess that makes it a little different - it’s a rogue beer, and that’s probably all that really needs to be said about it.

BrewDad (5667) - Olympia, Washington, USA - APR 25, 2008
Pint - Eastside Club Tavern - Olympia, WA
Aroma – Great Aroma lots of sweet hops and great malts.
Appearance – Golden yellow in color, Nice head and clear.
Flavor – A nice easy to drink beer. Was on tap and fresh. Where did they find it or wow hw did they get it. A retired beer out here in Oly. Great brewing build.
Palate – Crisp flavorful Mouthfeel, Great texture with a dry finish.
Overall – This was a great beer. I was so happy I got to try it and wow where did it come from. I will have to do some asking around. Where and how did they get this beer? Great stuff.

BückDich (5477) - McCall, Idaho, USA - MAY 8, 2005
Draught @ Bitter Creek Alehouse, Boise, ID
Pale gold/yellow color with a bright white head and very light lacing. Nose of citrusy light hops & some trademark pacman qualities. The flavor is balanced with some light malts & a spruce/spicey finish. Decent but not on par with their other pilseners.
