3.38/5 rDev -10.1%
Slightly chill hazed amber with a puffy white head.
Toasted grain aroma with a nutty scent like wheat bran. Slightly spicy noble hop aroma saffron and hay scent. The nutty smell makes this smell a lot like a Bock beer.
Starts out a little sweet with a slight tobacco taste. Biscuit malt flavor. Herbal tasting the sweetness again makes me think Bock beer.
Mouthfeel is full.
Overall it is expensive and too sweet.

A: Very lightly hazy golden yellow with light amounts of visible carbonation. The beer has a half finger tall white head that dissipates immediately leaving a very thin ring of bubbles at the edges of the glass. Light amounts of lacing are observed.
S: Very subtle/light aroma of sweet malts, caramel, and grassy/earthy hops.
T: Flavor is sweet toasted malts, caramel, and brown sugar. The beer has some more subtle hints of citrus zest and floral notes. There is some mild earthy hop bitterness in the finish.
M: Light to medium bodied with low to moderate amounts of carbonation. Slightly crisp with a dry finish.
O: Good for the style but nothing special - I have had many other beers in this style (though this is the first I have reviewed) and I would much rather have other beers instead of this one - not a bad beer just pales in comparison to others. Easy to drink and a decent session beer.

Pours a clear, bright golden color with a nice foamy white head with good retention.
The scent was sweet and grassy, with some notes of caramel.
The taste was of sweet bready malt, notes of floral hops, and some caramel presence.
Light bodies, smooth and a bit crisp, moderate carbonation.
I thought this was a really good beer, very flavorful and easy to drink. I would definitely go for this again.

Typical 22 ounce Rogue bomber, w/o freshness info.
A- Cloudy, dull tangarine amber, quickly departing light tan head, leaves nominal fine bits of lace.
S- Earthy malts picked up by the sniffer
T- Malty amber brew, slight floral note,lite lime and gin, but in the end, mostly light malt and moderate grainy hops drying out the finish.
M- nothing special going on mouthfeel wise
O- ehh, decent but not anything I would rush back to buy more of

A: A hazy pale copper color with a thin line of white bubbles on top.
S: Sweet toasted malts, caramel and a touch of earthy hop.
T: A nice, sweet toasted malt, caramel, brown sugar flavor up front that continues into the finish. It is sweet with only a touch of hop at the end to take the sweetness down just a touch.
M: Light-Medium body with low carbonation make this a good session beer.
O: A good Oktoberfest beer. No off flavors. Sweet without being cloying and good drinkability.

Pours a pumpkin orange.
Smell is strongly citrus. Jumps out at you and is pleasant.
Taste excellent. I find it hard to put my finger on what exactly is in it. most likely apples, orange, possible pumpkin.
Mouthfeel is good, could maybe use a bit more carbonation.
Overall, great ocktoberfest style. Very drinkable.
