Poored from the bottle with weak head that quickly ran away. The color was murky, orange- almost looks like an unfiltered homebrew. Smell is hoppy, not what I would expect here. The taste is nearly horrible. Very bitter with very little trace of malt. The aftertaste is putrid, almost vomit-like sitting on the back of the throat. This was very disappointing.

I really did not like this beer way too nasty and bitter. It has a poor head and for a bock beer it really lacked any malt taste. I thought that it was over hopped. All in all I just did not like the taste of this beer. It has a cidery taste that is disgusting to me. If all they did was use sugar to built up the alcohol they were wasting the effort.

After drinking this beer, Miller Lite tastes like a Guinness. This is by far one of the worst tasting beers that I have had. It is almost like someone took a barrel full of hops and mixed it with a glass of sugar water. This beer is one of the most distastful things that you could do with water, sugar, and hops. Please stop supporting their efforts in wasting our fresh water supply.

A: coppery brown. thin layer of head. clear.

S: yeast. malt. sweat?

T: slightly sour, especially at the back of the tongue. wheatish, but in a darker way. caramel? ...but not a sweet, good caramel.

M: medium bodied. pretty smooth.

O: I don't have a whole lot to say about this ale other than I wasn't a fan. I love Rogue, but this ale wasn't for me.

blech.

This beer looked good. Medium Dark amber color. It had a malty but sweaty smell to it. It had a thin head. Then I tasted it and it was very malty, but that sweaty smell was what it tasted like. I tried to drink it, but the more I drank the worse it tasted. I may have gotten a bad one by all the reviews here but it pretty much ruined beer for me for the rest of the night. So, I had to rate this one pretty poorly.

Foggy orange color with no head at all. The smell on this kind of reminded me of baby food. i am not sure about you but that is not something i want to sit back and enjoy. Taste was a bitter lemon, it was ok but was a little too bitter at times. Mouthfeel was thick and felt good but the bitterness is too overwhelming at times. The drinkability for me is low, but if you are a fan of bitter beers i would recomend it.
