3.4/5  rDev -5.6%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

Pours dark gold to bronze with a 4 fingers+ white bubbly head. Bubbles cling to the glass every where! Good head retention and lacing

Smell: malt & grainyness

Taste: Sweet malt and some floral hops. Slight graininess. Finishes crisp, slightly dry and grainy.

MF: Thin, but good carbonation

Pretty drinkable if taste isn't a big driver. Not very memorable or cheap. If you like non adventuresome euro lagers, then you're set!

Serving type: bottle

2.7/5  rDev -25%
look: 3.75 | smell: 2 | taste: 2.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 2.5

Poured from a 22 oz. bottle into a pint glass. Rogue is a reliable brewery so this undated bottle is probably past its prime.

Appearance: Pours lright yellow-gold with plenty of rising bubbles. The white head is good sized and durable, slowly fading into a thin top layer. Leaves decent lacing.

Smell: Some off or unattractive notes from Euro hops.

Taste: Better than what the smell hints at, this is a relatively robust and earthy lager. Mildly bitter, lightly hoppy finish and aftertaste.

Mouthfeel: Light to medium bodied with a moderate-high amount of spft carbonation. Crisp and smooth.

Overall: Not a strong style and one of the least attractive offerings from Rogue.

3.61/5  rDev +0.3%
look: 4.25 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Pours a richly dark straw hue, a bit hazy. Minimal foam (although I poured softer than usual, so that may have been my fault). Aroma a bit grassy, but couldn't pick up too much else due to the improper pour. Taste of cereal grains, biscuity. Nothing complex or layered to my palate. Bit of a hollow mouthfeel, crisp with a dry finish.
