Bought locally.

It pours a 24K gold, has a 2 finger head of foam that does well with the lacing.

It has a grassy smell to it along with some earthy malty notes and grain

I can't say I taste any grassy hops; a mild, hard to describe bitterness, with an earthy maltiness that hits my tastebuds like umm..rotten fruit? Rotten vegetables? Man, I can't go on with this one. It's the drain for yee.

It's a pretty beer. A burnt coppery orange beer, not dark, but dark enough to be opaque. Very fluffy head, tiny bubbles with just a few larger bubbles around the edge. Half a finger thing, bright white, and retains well. Thin lace eventually fades away.

Very malty nose with some floral and fruity notes. Think Germany with the pils malt/savory floral hop scents.

There's nothing special about the taste. It's not that it's bad, but you can find this anywhere. Very pilsnerish taste. Took points away because this is supposed to be an anniversary beer. Disappointing.

Slightly better than a macro. Light bodied, mostly bitter. Probably a thirst quencher, but doesn't work for me. Grainy feel, reminds me of rice adjuncts.

A total swing and a miss...and for an anniversary beer. Poor beer by Rogue.

Poured a hazy amber with a creamy semi-white laced head. There really wasn't anything in the nose for this one. Couldn't distinguish any hops, malt, citrus, etc
The taste was ok, not hoppy or malty as the nose sort of made you figure that.
But what I REALLY liked about this beer was that the mouthful was ENORMOUS. Full, inviting, enjoyable, filling each part of your mouth with good honest beer
That alone made you come back for another sip

eyes...
quite the foamy bastard, almost three fingers of slightly off white head, clingy head made up of nice micro bubbles, a good amount of carbonation is present which of course feeds the head, slight orange hue and clear, pretty standard to above average fare

nose...
somewhat musty, mild caramel malts, very mild spice from the hops

taste etc...
pretty mellow, a mix of some spice, some sweetness, the malt profile is probably what jumps up first, Am I supposed to be wooed by the subtlety here... or bored by it ? this is so underwhelming on so many levels, just real middle of the road, a nice malt flavor and a hint of the hops really...

verdict?
disappointing. I don't mind going with a non psycho style for an anniversary ale but this is just average at best
