3.9/5  rDev +6.3%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Presentation: 22 oz brown bomber with a silk screen painted on label, and oxygen cap is fitted for a longer shelf life. No freshness date to be found.

Appearance: Deep golden in colour with a wispy white lace that keeps well.

Smell: Sweet malt with hints of fruit and a very mild whiff of buttery diacetyl.

Taste: A malty brew to start off with, crisp mouth feel with a touch of chewiness. Hop bitterness does its job to balance quite well with a slight citric note. Though there is a punch of sweetness and biscuity malt that shows off a bit. In the finish is more lingering residual sweetness, some grain and a light herbal hop flavour.

Notes: Tame on the hops for a typical Rogue brew yet still holds its own with a bigger than average malty body. Better than decent and enjoyable to say the least.

3.54/5  rDev -3.5%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

Under the label "White Crane Bitter Ale", at 6.5%abv.; coming in a 355ml bottle, BB 05/12/14, served lightly chilled in a straight imperial pint glass.

A: pours a clear, dark orangey amber colour coming with a well-lasting light beige frothy head and constant streams of mild carbonation.
S: fairly aromatic gristy pale malts, burned sugar and caramelised orangey aroma come at the front; given a swirl, a clean-ish note of sweet leafy herbs, even more aromatic maltiness as of crystal malts and peachy+orangey blossom chime in, but overall the aroma retains a rather intriguingly clean profile.
T: effervescent on the entry, the foretaste is intriguingly sweet and malty, showing lots of quality aroma from toasted malts such as crystal/Munich malts and roast barley, with the former’s nutty toffee-ish-ness and a lightly dry-ish touch of the latter, plus extra candy-ish taste, and a mildly spicy-citric taste of hops as a balancer; closely ensued by a wave of dry-ish bitter hops which turns slightly chewy in the end, with a tinge of alc. warmth lingering in the end.
M&O: the mouthfeel remains refreshing and softly carbonated, against a moderate flavour profile and a generally solid but not thick body; overall, this malty brew is quite different to all other Rogue’s ales I’ve had so far, due to its emphasis on the aromatic maltiness on the balance. Very well made, although I’d prefer if a bit more hops were applied to render just a bit more bitterness overall, esp. at the relatively high alc. content based on a simpler flavour profile.
