3.54/5 rDev -1.7%
Pours a murky light orange with a foamy beige head that settles to wisps of film on top of the beer. Tiny dots of lace slowly drip into the remaining beer on the drink down. Smell is of malt, grain, and grass aromas. Taste is much the same with grain, grass, and slight fruity flavors on the finish. There is a very mild amount of hop bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer that is tasty, but the smell on this one is slightly better in my opinion.

3.56/5 rDev -1.1%
22 oz bottle was poured into a nonic glass.
Appearance: A one finger head was poured that reduced to a thin layer. It is a golden yellow color with great clarity and vision of bubbles coming up through the glass. Spotty lacing down the glass as the beer was drank.
Smell: Toasted, bready, cereal, pale, lager yeast, herbal, and grassy hops.
Taste: Same as above with traditional lager bite and some bitterness in the rear.
Mouthfeel: Smooth, medium to full bodied, a little chewy, and medium carbonation.
Overall: Pretty standard Euro lager. Definitely drink when nice and cold on a hot summer day.

2.7/5 rDev -25%
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.

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.
