Been a few years since last I've had this brew.

Pours a pretty nice clean/clear golden amber color, pretty nice carbonation, with a nice small creamy off-white head, which leaves some sticky lacing behind. The nose is malty, slight banana/clove, spice. The taste is malty, slight banana/clove note, spicy. Medium body, with a nice little dry/bitter finish. Overall, this is a tasty brew.

Well, this is my first Rogue and first Maibock. Pours a cloudy copper color with nice carbonation and alot of lacing. Scents of hops, citrus, spices. This brew has a very nice and unique taste of sweet/bitter malt. There's a medium body. The lacing just does not want to disappear. The brew is very drinkable at 6.5%, highly recommended.

Drank with good buddy and fellow Ba guy Pleepleus.

Poured from a bomber into a pilsner glass. Poured golden amber with an inch thick white foam head that didnt last too long. Gave off anice floral scent with a hoppy malt sweet smell. The taste was immediate honey sweetness followed by a nice hoppy bite. Finished with slight alcohol warmth. Overall a nice medium bodied crisp feel with fairly light carbonation. Good hoppy spice feel. Enjoyed this one and could defintely a couple more of these tasty bombers.

What a Rogue! Dark cloudy amber was this brew with a small off-white head that diminished fairly quickly but left nice lace. Lovely nose full of malt and caramel, hinting of a fruity hop overlay. The taste is very good, being full of malt, but beautifully restrained by the clean fruity hops. Nicely bitter and full bodied, this is creamy, smooth drinking beer. Easy drinkability.
