08/03/09- Purchased at Bottle Barn in Santa Rosa, CA.
Presentation- 22oz bottle, no freshness dating found. Poured into my 24oz mug.
Appearance- Darker orange colored pour, maybe a touch amber. Fizzy head which reaches a 1/2 inch but fades quickly. Light spots of lace left behind.
Smell- Really no real scent. Some light malt, maybe a hint of lemon-orange aroma. Pretty scentless.
Taste- Quite an average boring flavor. Some wheat notes, some dry malty notes, maybe even a touch of cardboard. Very light artificial orange flavor.
Mouthfeel- A bit over carbonated, some malty flavor in the aftertaste.
Drinkability- Come on Rogue...you can do better than this. Just plain boring.

kind of a random purchase when I got that once-in-awhile craving for a boring APWA
a: wheat ale glass, lightly hazed honey golden in color, topped with a thin layer of white carbonation, average retention
s: wheat and pale malt base, clean with a light peppery spice, a little floral, brief glimpses of orange, some bready yeast aromas, not very fruity but some apple or pear, mildly hopped
m: carbonation a touch spritzy, lower in level, with a lighter body
t: cleanly grainy wheat and very pale malts through and through, some yeast, mild orange peel, grassy hop flavors, just a touch of sugar early before drying thoroughly to leave a hint of spice and mild bitterness, very delicate honey flavors that are quite tough to pull out - but that's usually expected with honey, pretty one-dimensional here
o: not bad but fairly uninteresting and one-dimensional, nothing off about it though - would be a decent choice on a hot summer day, honey pretty much absent
