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.

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.

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.
