Had on draft at Pizza Paradiso, DC (Georgetown)

A: light orange; semicloudy; thin head, mixed-size bubbles; decent lacing
S: bubblegum, hoppy, persistent and very inviting
T: hops prominent--grass, hay; the (single) malt stays in the backseat, seems to be a medium roast; grapefruit rind on the tail end of the swig
M: silky, nice

Really good table beer

On-tap at the brewery in Newport, OR.

Pours a very pale yellow hue: very mild and light. Head is very frothy and egg white; it leaves firm rings of lace down the glass. Carbonation is streaming, but quite mild. Not bad all up.

Nose is very, very light and very, very dull. Some maltiness comes through along with a very faint hint of lemon, but it's not exciting or bold, and doesn't really give me anything insight into the malt itself.

Pale light entry on the palate, with a clean but empty mid-palate. There's a touch of bitterness on the finish, along with some husky grain. It's not unpleasant, it's just, well, not there. Feel is extremely weak. Almost watery.

I don't have a lot to say about this beer, because this beer doesn't have a lot to say about itself. Single malt? Is that interesting? Certainly not this one.

22 oz bottle poured into a nonic.

Opening this beer lets out a violent hiss of CO2. As I pour, the glass quickly fills with foam, leaving maybe 25% beer and 75% foam in the glass. Volcanoes of bubble rush to the surface... First impression is that this is likely infected.

Aroma is harsh, mediciny, aspirin, fusel alcohol. First sip very astringent, bitter, and extremely dry and watery. There is something seriously off with this beer. There is absolutely no residual sweetness or mouthfeel, just a fizzy bitter taste, and then nothing.

Yuck. I'm not drinking this one. I gave it several healthy swallows, and I'm throwing in the towel. Down the drain it goes. A huge disappointment.

On-tap at Coopers Craft & Kitchen Bar, New York, NY

A: The beer is slightly hazy yellow in color and has a slight amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a thin white head that eventually completely faded away, leaving a thin collar around the edge of the glass.
S: There are light aromas of spicy hops and earthy yeast in the nose. These become stronger as the beer warms up.
T: Flavors of biscuit and pale malts are present in the taste along with a light amount of bitterness. There are also some hints of hops and yeast. At first, the taste seems a little bland but it improves as it warms up.
M: It feels light- to medium-bodied on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: Nothing really stood out about this beer that would make me want to try it again but it could be something suited for a hot summer day.

Had this at the local bar as part of their incentive program. I was happy to see an Oregon beer as part of the program (go Ducks!).

The look fits the profile of a blonde beer. It is nice and light with fluffy foam on top. You can tell that it woudl leave some good lacing right off the pour.

I smell what right from the glass. It is a refreshing beer. The flavor is very complimentary. I would say that this would work as a great entry level beer for people graduating from BMC.

Pick up a bottle. Hopefully it isn't priced too high. Unfortunately most Rogue beers are pretty expensive in New Jersey.

A light hazy golden pour, 2 finger head of foam, some lacing.

It smells like a typical adjunct lager...some sweetish malty notes with some grain, light hoppy notes.

The taste is better than the smell. Nice malty notes paired with a spicy Pilsner-like hoppy profile, it has a nice dryness that finishes crisp and clean. Without looking up what this was brewed as, or looking at the label, I would have guessed this to be a Pils.

An interesting brew that's an easy quaffer and has some good taste to it, I like it. Probably more than most. ;^)

look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

A - Light and clear amber under a thick head and spotty lacing.

S - Fresh citrusy hops, sweet bread malts, earthy spices.

T - Malts up forward balanced against the orange peel hops and peppery spice, hints of booziness.

M - Crisp and clean, medium body and carbonation.

O - Not quite as sessionable as it should be at 5.3 % abv but worth a try if you spot it.
