Undated bottle into pint glass. Poured a cloudy amber with a HUGE off-white head. Very smooth, though - bready yeasts and well balanced roasted malt and hops. Slightly bitter finish. Medium mouthfeel. Not sure this is one that I would revisit frequently - nothing really stands out.

Draft into a pint glass. Slightly cloudy reddish gold color. A reasonable head and good lacing. Nice Amber taste, a bit malty, bready with some orange flavor. A pretty good beer.

Feel is frothy. Semi light.

Would drink if handed.

Look - As expected Amber in color. Nice rich color.

Smell - Toasty and crisp. Not too much else.

Taste - Toasty with a very slight citrus undertone. As you swallow you can taste more of the citrus come to the front as the sweeter almost brown sugar taste fades.

Mouthfeel: Very easy to drink. Carbonation is decent, not overpowering, not too little. Good balance. Smooth finish without much aftertaste lingering.

Overall - Extremely easy drinking. A great beer to relax with. I wish it was available more often in my area. I would love to have more of these.

12 oz bottle.

Pours a deep copper color with a large, durable, creamy, bone-colored head.

Aroma: hops and malts in about equal measure.

Flavor: Sweet and medium roasted malts dominate all the way through to the finish. Excellent, near even, sweet-bitter balance.

This is a great beer that you can easily drink a 6-pack of, if they weren't so expensive. Smooth taste, not bitter.

Pours a deep cloudy ruddy brown with what starts as a decent amount of creamy white head but quickly settles down to mostly a ring. The aroma is very mild but what is noticeable is malty, with dark fruit and bread. The taste is much the same but a little bit washed out on the malts but there is a nice sharp hops addition. The body is smooth from start to finish and has a nice weight to it.

As always rogue hit it out of the park. Didn't pour it but it smelled and tasted of yeast and bread. Subtle hop characters added to its greatness. Feel iris smooth, outstanding for an amber ale. Overall I highly recommend this beer. It's delicious and refreshing. Easily quaffable and enjoyable. Will be trying it again soon
