Draught at Ørsted Ølbar. Clear amber/brown - offwhite head. Caramel. Light to medium bitterness. Medium malty. Light fatness. Very english - just like being in London.... Old lazy beer !!!! Ktwse (5818) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 24, 2011
On tap. One of the best bitters I’ve had in a long time. Small, off white head when I received it, don’t know how it pours. Color is amber, bit of lacing. Aroma is hops, caramel, a touch of bread and malts, taste pretty much the same thing. Very pleasant bitterness and decently long aftertaste. Mouthfeel is medium but fairly creamy. horto008 (188) - Alabama, USA - MAY 17, 2011
Enjoyed it. Amber with slight haze. Bitter but approachable. Had a slight sweetness (Caramel) that complemented the hops. Complexity was there too, a good mix. paco (576) - Regina, Saskatchewan, CANADA - MAR 6, 2011
Aromas of bakery fresh malts, some caramel and some bitterness. Taste is similar. Lots of caramel malts, some cereal and maybe some spice. Nice bitterness, and balanced carbonation. Hophazard (193) - San Francisco, California, USA - FEB 17, 2011
Biscuit grainy nose with trace english hops. A scarely pour with creamy off white foam. Alcohol warmth begins, followed by slightly cloying sweetness. Light mouthfeel and low carbonation. A great pub beer.

Has more hop zang to it than most other ESBs, malts do balance it well, a pretty good ESB. coolpop (1394) - Birmingham, Alabama, USA - DEC 20, 2010
Bomber. Pours a hazy orangey amber. Lots of suspended particulates. Large, dense off white head that leaves a big pillow in the middle as it collapses. Some nice lacing. Aroma and flavor is biscuits, caramel, some orange, sweet and spicy hops. Well balanced. As it warms, orange, cherry, and other fruit emerge even more. Medium mouthfeel. A very well done, drinkable beer. auerbrau (3206) - Ithaca, New York, USA - NOV 19, 2010
22oz Bottle, poured at RIFT English Pale Ale tasting. Honeyed malt aroma. Cloudy mid-gold pour with plenty of lacey head. Flavors follow the nose into a mingled honey malt, shortbread, and biscuit. Some leafy hops follow up, a little dusty tasting. It’s fine. JoeinDahlem (1613) - Berlin, GERMANY - SEP 10, 2010
Lively and cleanly bitter pale ale on the grassy end of the spectrum. Bitterness is firm without hurting drinkability, although flavor and aroma are sort of lacking here. Mungular (48) - Georgia, USA - AUG 18, 2010
Pours a beautiful, cloudy amber with neat, but diminishing head. The aroma is standard, and the taste is very well balanced. I’d like a little more smoothness from the palate, but all in all an excellent bitter from Rogue.
