Bottle sample at a tasting at the Beer & Beyond shop. Thanks Tom L. As "Rogue White Crane Bitter Ale". Murky orange. Aroma of stale bread, cardboard, wort and rotten fruits. Flavor has stale malt and some bitterness. Light to medium-bodied. Seems way too old. troopie (2497) - Munchen an der Willamette, Oregon, USA - MAY 27, 2013
Bottle. Pours light copper with thin white head. Somewhat cloudy. Aroma is malt and banana. Malty flavour. Hop and herb finish, similar to coriander and basil JCB (3999) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - MAY 6, 2013
Had this in at least two guises, under this name and the name Shark Tooth Ale. I’m otherwise sympathetic to Rogue but all the renaming is bullshit. Anyways, a clean, clear pour with a firm head and crisp carbonation. Soft malts in the nose with mild herbal and floral notes, almost as if the brewers wanted to make a kolsch/pilsner cyborg. Earthy in places, bright in others, the beer failed to leave much of an impression. zickbeer_ye (441) - Virginia, USA - APR 22, 2013
Dry malty bready scent with a little tart citrus in the end. Cloudy amber Orange tone light head. kinda watery malt flavor with a sudden hint of citrus. Wet and kinda tart on the palate. Emeister84 (2652) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - APR 21, 2013
UPDATED: APR 22, 2013 Aromas of nuts, caramel, toffee, subtle apricot, and earthy hops. Clear red-orange with a fading, beige head. Dry, slightly bitter, and with toasty malty flavors. Light body, low carbonation, and finishes cleanly with lingering caramel and earthy hop flavors.

Medium gold color. Slightly cloudy, small head. Mild malts with a spicy hoppy character. Good flavor. Smooth taste. Mouthfeel is full. Finish is crisp and clean. Aftertaste is slightly bitter. Tasty beer, light and refreshing, but enough hop bite to make it interesting. dfinney23 (3424) - Houston, Texas, USA - AUG 29, 2011
