Appearance- Pours with a thin white head. Honey brown in colour with bubbles present.

Smell- Malty and nutty aromas. A hint of earthy aromas comes in as well.

Taste- A piney, earthy flavour that is moderately bitter. This ale has a easy drinkability.

Mouthfeel- Medium bodied ale with slight amount of bubbles on the tongue.

Overall- A flavourful ale that is well balanced and easy to drink. Can see myself purchasing this again in the future. Rogue has some great offerings, although I wish they weren't as expensive as they are.

A - Bright amber, off white head leave fast. Sparce cling lace.

S - Sweet and malty. Very sweet malt, some sharpness underneath.

T - Taste follows smell. Sweet malt up front, balanced nicely by the hops finish. Bready character in middle. Nice.

M - Medium body. More complex than many. Nice balance and carb.

D - Could suck a few down.
