Rogue's flagship beer is indeed a fantastic beer. It pours a nice deep orange with a slightly fruity, biscuity fragrance. Taste delivers on the scent in spades, even adding in a slightly nutty touch. It's a unique brew that can easily find its way into any beer drinker's fridge.

My favorite beer...not much else needed to say. I could drink 10 in a row, it's so good. Perfect for a hot summer day or a cold winter night. Flavor is amazing. Banana, citrus, hops, slight bitterness, slight sweetness...nothing else is like it. Just an amazing brew.

Poured from a bottle into a lager glass. Pours a Medium amber, with a finger and a half worth of head. The smell is quite hoppy if you ask me, With light toasted malt and bread. The taste virtually follows the smell. Tastes hoppy, Some light malt, Some wet bread and slightly strong skunk. Weird for the type, Eh?, It all piled together nicely thought. The mouthfeel somewhat follows, Though it allows more of the skunk to come through. Overall, A VERY easy to drink beer. Seriously, I would buy this for ANY occasion. Though at $2.50 a bottle, The prices are a bit too high for what you get. Drop your prices, And you'll consistently have my ( and I'm sure thousands of others ) business
