A- Pours a honey orange with 2 fingers of milky white head. Nice webed lacing left clinging to the pint glass.

S- Nice and hoppy with a sweet smell of caramel and honey. There's a bready quality here and a touch of fruitiness.

T- The fruitiness is more noticeable in the taste, mingles nicely with the toasted and caramel malts. Finish is slightly hoppy.

M- Medium body and low carbonation make for a mighty smooth drink.

D- Easy to throw a 6'er of these down, i'm glad Rogue bottles these in the 12oz bottles. They're starting to become a regular staple in my fridge.

4.11/5  rDev +4.1%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.25

(purchased cold, no best-by or bottling date - poured into an Innis & Gunn fluted goblet)

A: slightly-hazy, but otherwise relatively clear, clean-looking amber liquid, topped with a buttload of foam... that foam stays standing for a good long while, opening up from the inside, receding down to a lovely marshmallow-y texture - the head is just fantastic!, though it does break up into lil islands on the way down... bit of lace to and fro

S: mild floral notes, Munich malt... toasty, lightly-spiced sugar cookie... a tad herbal, as in parsley, and classic leafy-floral German hops... smells like the base for many a' heartily-hopped 'malt-forward' west coast 'IPAs' in the range of yellow to red

T: interplay of elegantly bitter, leafy hop and moderately spicy-herbal yeast character, all atop a meaty malt foundation... I could see how one could call this a Maibock - the German hop flavor is apparent, while there's also an ideal level of clean alcohol flaming in the background - but the malt flavors are unmistakably American - graham-cracker, with a dusting of light caramel... the bitterness builds and is the last thing standing

M: kinda silky smooth, cut hard through by the bitterness... despite the voluminous head, there's only a modicum of bubbly tingle on the tongue... round, soft-felt-blankety flow

O: shit, probably only had this once or twice in the past 10 years, but this is pretty damn good - but I love bitter, malty, fullish beers, minus all the tutti-fruity nonsense... if you're familiar enough with Rogue's ales, you may very well peg this as one right away - that Pacman is quite distinct... we'll see what the price point on this is, but I could see drinking this more often

From notes taken at Taphoues on July 4th American tap takeover

Dark straw, lines of lace vertically, taste and smell are grains and malts, Germanic balance, with a really quite sweet palate, nice to only have a sampler as this is not cutting it. Bland beer, if well made.

Serving type: on-tap
