Northwest Harrington, Klages, and Crystal 50/60 Malts; Willamette and Kent Goldings Hops; Free Range Coastal Water, and Top Fermenting Pacman Yeast. No Chemicals, Preservatives or Additives.
A classic English Special Bitter, rich and complex flavors with that special Kent Golding finish
12 PLATO 35 IBU
75 AA 17 L
Appearance Rogues typical busy carbonation at pour; white, finger-thick micronized head at pour that breaks down early; very slight cloud; light orange edge to amber core for body; lace is reasonable
Smell the head was almost destroyed as a result of the mouthwatering; fat malty nose with a muted hop buzz
Taste bitter and wispy caramel intertwine throughout; slight rind hops stick around; flavors could step it up just a notch
Mouthfeel slightly cutting, crisp carbonation on the tongue from the start with a slight descend to the finish; good body for a bitter; suitably dry to close
Drinkability dont drink this one too fast or itll dry out the back of your throat; its as smooth as Id desire for an English bitter
Rogue solidifies their position as one of my favorite breweries although this isn't one from their top shelf.
