look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

From the 650 ml. bottle. Sampled on June 8, 2013.

The pour is a heady straw yellow with lively carbonation and pretty good clarity.

Aromas of pale malts, toast, biscuit, sugar sweetness, and a crisp hop character. It just smells clean.

The body is light to medium with a keen smoothness.

The taste is vibrant with pale malts, sweetness, with an low to moderate bitter finish that lingers and coats the back of my throat. It meets the test of the style I believe.

From a 22 oz bomber to a pint

A: The brew displays a clear, lager-style straw-yellow, with a slight golden hue. On a gentle pour a sudsy, 1-inch head forms that never fully recedes, sticky lacing everywhere.

S: Gentle nose with touches of earthy vinous hops at the front, a crackery, slightly sweet malt note wraps the bouquet.

T: Really singular flavors as the bitter and sweet aspects are barely distinguishable. Grainy, buiscuity malts quickly converge with a tea-like hop-dryness, revealing a cracker-like profile. Touches of citrus and white pepper add a layer of complexity, but just barely. The finish is remarkably succinct with almost no residual flavors.

M: Light-medium body, foamy for the style. Lots a carbonation in this brew, on a couple of sips I thought it was a nitro-tap.

Rogue has been disappointing in many of its recent offerings, but not here. This isn't a style that I'd clamor over, but I'd drink this brew whenever it's offered.
