look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 2 | overall: 3

A: Pours a bright golden amber with a creamy, compact white head that laces deep into the glass. Out of the bottle, this lager displays a slight hint of haze that is far from unappealing.

S: Sweet and a touch maltier than expected on the nose. Aromas of caramel, straw, grass, herbs, and honey are very apparent.

T: Opens oddly sweet with notes of honey, straw, hay, grass, cream, minerals, caramel, and herbs. The finish is fleeting and rather sweet with notes of honey, caramel, and grass being dominant.

M: This is where I have to knock off major points. Despite being medium to full bodied for the style, this beer is flabby, slick, and gritty in the mouth. It does not feel like any kind of pilsner I've ever tried.

O: I find this lager to be quite lacking and do not see myself revisiting it, though part of me hopes I got a bad bottle. Perhaps Rogue just doesn't do lagers all that well (that's my opinion at least). A surprisingly underwhelming effort from a consistent brewery.

I had this on tap at Market Cross Pub and brewery served in an Imperial pint at the Rogue tap takeover.

A very beautiful clear straw golden with thick cap of white the lace rings the glass. The aroma while very mild, has a nice malt scent with subtle noble hop odors and slightly floral hints with a mild lemony accent. The feel is light in body which is good with a slight spice and resin of hops with high carbonation and slight sweet nutty tinge with semi-dry bitter finish.

The taste has crisp mellow malt w/ light bitter hop which has an herbal quality and there is a mellow fruitiness from the yeast. The flavor is very clean and the hops give a low spice flavor which fits the style with some mild floral qualities and the mostly dry malt gives a enjoyable clean effect as it finishes on the dry side. I really liked this, definitely better than most pils, I wish more craft brewers would attempt the style since Rogue does a decent job with this, very quaffable.

22oz bottle, served in a pilsner glass.

A - clouded, golden yellow color with a big fluffy white head that took a while to settle down, leaving lots of lacing on the glass.

S - some citrus/hop aromas, some malty aromas, some yeast/wheat aromas.

T - well balanced flavor with a dry, crisp finish.

M - crisp and light.

D - excellent drinkabilty.

A-Chill hazed golden color..

S-Sweet maltiness...almost maibock like as it has some breadiness...if anything some earthy hop notes but very light...very impressive sweet malt aroma though..

T-Not as sweet as the aroma leads you to think...I'm not real familiar with sterling hops which are used in this...I'm getting a firm, tight bitterness with some underlying earthy notes...

M-Medium bodied...lacks snappiness...more of a maibock feel to the body...

D-Interesting pilsner take...I like it.

Pours a very nice light straw color with some good head and nice lacing. Nice clean, crisp scent, slightly sweet with a hint of spice. Excellent taste, a well done pils; clean malt taste with a slight pepper taste and a very clean finish. Goes down very well. One of the best pilseners I've had.

This beer poured a beautiful golden/yellow color with a nice white head that did not last long. The aroma was grassy and a lemony citrus smell. The flavor was also of citrus and grain with some balanced hop bitterness. This beer had a good mouthfeel with proper carbonation. This was drinkable and I enjoyed it.

Rogue Überfest Pilsner is a cloudy, blonde lager with a fluffy white head that leaves great lacing. It has a grassy, lemony aroma with notes of bread and malt. It has a medium-light body. It's smooth with a crisp finish. It is simple, amply bitter, has good balance and tastes a bit lemony. It's a little plain, but the Sterling hops are unique. Not bad.
