My very first Rogue beer.

Serving style : 16 oz pint can poured into glass.

Appearance (3.75) : A very tightly knit, bubbly on top, two fingered head with a burnt copper/orange body. Opacity is about 60%.

Aroma (4) : Honey, ginger, and planty hop character out front. Bouquet is loud and boisterous. Some roasted wheat in the background. Pretty decent.

Taste (3.75) : A very malty body with a distinct mixed hop finish. Some wheat and red bean with citrus hop notes. I can taste the heads of barley in the malt, as well as some cracker. The hop is fresh, plant-like, faintly citrus. Both malt and hop are exquisitely mixed here and play their parts respectively.

Mouthfeel (3.25) : Medium bodied, with some prickly carbonation. Creamy, ends smooth. Drinkability is a bit heavy. Overall, average, nothing special.

Overall (3.76) : Yes, a good brew. I don't know if I'll finish the pint because it's a bit of a chore to drink, however the taste is there and so is the aroma. After awhile it gets bothersome and I did end up pouring half of it out as I was eating and it wasn't mixing well. I'd recommend you try this one at least to see what you think.

look: 4.25 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Poured from a 16 oz. can. And yes, you are right. That can did reach me by way of the legendary woodychandler. Has a pretty amber color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is kind of malty, a bit of caramel. Taste is mild, a bit of hop bitterness, some light malts, easy drinking but a bit subdued. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall is a pretty good beer.
