Poured from an undated 12 oz. bottle: clear, bright copper like a new penny with a half-inch, off-white head.
Quite aromatic with a soft, malty and fruity aroma, as well as a faint, oaky and vanilla aroma.
This one is quite refreshing and smooth with an emphasis on malt with a rounded fruity aftertaste. The use of an ale yeast makes this traditional lager style very unique. Some of that vanilla aroma is also evident in the flavor. There is an inviting hop bitterness on the back of the tongue.
This is a light to medium bodied offering with restrained, yet zesty carbonation. The mouthfeel is well-rounded with a mellow, malty flavor lingering on the palate.
Another solid offering from Rogue, maybe the best I have tried. This is an immensely drinkable bock that hides the ABV well.
