Finally reviewing this beer, one of my all time favorites...

Poured into a tall pint glass, color is bright crisp gold with an amber hue, great thick dense head that lingers nicely and leaves a light lacing.

Scent is very clean, great light pilsner malt with some munich coming through in the form of some breadiness, light caramel comes through as well. hints of of feint clean hop bitterness.

taste is great, easily one of the tastiest, easily drinkable beers out there while not losing any ounce of complexity. it comes through inititially as light toasted pilsner, some munich breadiness and then hints of caramelization. crisp hop flavors balance the sweetness.

Mouthfeel is well balanced, neither the crispness of the hops or the sweetness from the malts overpower, while blending well and making for a great easy drinking brew.

Overall, a great brew from rogue, great flavors, somewhat complex and easily drinkable.

Poured into a Pint Glass

Appearance - Fairly Hazy Amber color with a slightly brown head. Lacing retention is also pretty god as well

Smell - Caramel, Toffee, Butterscotch, Sweet Malts and some slight hops. It's smells fairly sweet & absolutely wonderful!

Taste - Caramel & Butterscotch with some barley & very yeasty notes. Kind of reminds me of a Wee Heavy Ale. Flavor is not quite as sweet as the scent, however it is still excellent!

Mouthfeel - It's a little bit on the thicker side and it's quite smooth and creamy thanks to the thickness and subdued carbonation, which in turn makes it easy to drink!

Overall - It's a fairly sweet tasting ale, impressive considering it's only 6.50% ABV. With it's great flavor and easy drinkability, I highly recommend checking this out!
