Rouge Single Malt Ale pours an almost hazy golden color, with a small but lacing head. There is a sweet crisp malty aroma, with just a hint of hop. The taste is the same way, good balanced mellow malty flavors, with just a hint of hops mixed in. Good full bodied flavor. Overall this is a slightly hoppy blonde ale with full flavors, very enjoyable for this style.

Hazy pale blonde, one finger of white head with pretty good retention as well as a fair bit of lace. Smell is full of lemony citrus hops followed by cereal malts, more hop and a bit of earthiness, not overly complex but a nice mixture of light citrus and malts. Taste follows the nose, lemony citrus up front, bready malts follow, hoppy and lightly bitter throughout, citrus aftertaste. High carbonation , medium body though watery at points and a bit thin. This was pretty enjoyable although simple, not a whole lot going on here to make this a great beer but certainly something that I could drink a few glasses of throughout the day.

500 ml bottle poured into a chalice glass.

A-Pours a golden straw colour with about two fingers of off white head. Head stays up for a decent amount of time and leaves behind a very solid white lace on the glass.

S-moderate hoppy aroma. Probably just the marketing, but I also get a whiff of barnyard or haystack.

T-grassy hops with rustic cereal.

M-nicely carbonated. Bubbles seem to allow the flavour to wash over the tongue.

O-quite liked this one. Simple an refreshing. Would love to kick back on a porch in the summer with a bottle of this and a steak. Probably not the best beer for the winter season, but I knew that going in.

This very nice blonde comes out of the bottle looking a little dirty with some nice head. The aroma is mild and appropriate for the style.

The taste is also right where it should be - slightly over the top. It is a nice mild hoppy taste, but truly unique. The aftertaste also sticks with you in a nice way.

Unfortunately, this brew cannot overpower strong flavors and I just killed my taste buds with some hot jerky. Time for some cheese so I can appreciate this good beer.

I would buy this again.

Pours a pretty straw/blonde color. Rather clear for most part with a tall snow white head. Pleasant light citrus and floral notes.
Light sweetness and lightly bitter. That’s about it. Good body as Rogue always has, but not much else going on. Very minimal hop presence.
Nice body but fairly boring in flavor. This beer is by no means bad or repulsive, just bland and uneventful. Taste like a higher quality adjunct lager.
I do really like the simplistic approach to this beer. Most of today's craft brews seem to have 6 kinds of malt, 6 kinds of hops, aged in this, blessed by that etc. This actually reminds me alot of the first home brew I ever made come to think of it.

First Growth Single Malt Ale is a blonde ale that comes to us in a 22 oz. bomber. It pours a slightly hazy yellow, with a billowing, creamy white head. The nose is light citrus with a mild and floral hop presence.

This beer begins with a light toastiness from the grains and but then delivers some great citrus notes and a hop kick in a bitter, crisp finish. It’s very bright, but at the same time, also earthy. The PacMan yeasts even give it sort of an English ale dimension. This is a medium-body beer with lots of carbonation and a slight creaminess.

A very easy drinking beer; simple in its flavors, but I think it does what it intended to do; showcase the freshness of the ingredients and the essence of beer itself. I’m really looking forward to trying other selections from the Chatoe.

Bought at Total Wine in Claymont Delaware.
Continuing my Rogue journey, having now had just about all of the Chatoe Rogue selections.

Poured into a tall beer mug, a cloudy yellowish orange with about 2 finger head, bubbly and off white. Minimal lacing.
The malt scent jumped out at me immediately, with almost a breadiness evident.

First sip, noticed the lighter mouthfeel which is to be expected for a single malt American ale.
Mostly noticing the maltiness in flavor with the Revolution hops adding the bitterness that I enjoy very much.
I could see this being a good session beer in the summer as it's a smooth drink with a low ABV.

As a hop head, I wasn't expecting a whole lot from this, but it did deliver.
And as others have said, I always respect the process of Rogue growing their own barley, malt and hops. It adds authenticity to this selection. Try it!

Bottle pour at the BevMo Holiday Beerfest held at Golden Road Brewing in Los Angeles, CA.

Pours a murky orange with a foamy bone colored head that settles to a film on top of the beer. Small dots of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, fruits, and yeast. Taste is much the same with a mild hop bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp and medium bodied mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer but it's pretty basic for the style.

Bright golden/straw color and medium head. Inviting appearance. Smells bready and yeasty. Good lacing. Very light mouthfeel. Refreshing. Malty with light floral hops, but tasty hop flavor. No booziness. A little bit of bitterness in the finish.

Overall: This beer is very refreshing and is overall, enjoyable. It has all the elements you’re looking for: maltiness, hoppiness, bitterness. However, the mouthfeel is soooo light, and the bitterness so mellow, that it lacks the profoundness necessary to raise it to the next level. Tasty hop flavor, though light. I would definitely appreciate this beer on a hot day or when I need a good swig of something refreshing, but it is not a real standout.
