The appearance was a nice looking hazy golden yellow with a soft carbonation rising into a one finger white foamy head that dissipated within less than a minute leaving some neatly coated looking lacing. The smell definitely had the German pilsener malts making up the majority of the aroma but still letting in an adequate amount of sweet bread. The taste was mainly the same with a decent quick crisp sweet finish. On the palate, this one sat about a light on the body with a pretty good sessionability about it. The carbonation was good for the style and pretty good to me. Overall, pretty nice and easy going pale lager easily had with it's respected food.

Impressive pour, has a 1" white head, golden liquid. Minimal lager yeast sweetness to the aroma.

Floral hopped, mixture of pale malts and wheat, even some crystal to heft it up relatively speaking. Thought the carbonation was a little underdone for a lager. Floral earthy noble like hops. Slightly bitter.

Can't really think why I would ever want to drop $7 for a bomber of this ever again when I can get other lagers of similar quality for a 6 pack for that price.

I bought a bottle of Rogue Irish Style Lager in a bottle shop. Poured in to a pint glass.

Pours a pale gold color, shiny and clear with a small thin white head.

Smell is lager-like, cereal, floral perfume notes with hint of nail polish

Taste is a faint biscuit flavor upfront, with some bitter dandelion and rose flavors on the finish.

Mouthfeel is in keeping with the style, crisp and clean.

All in all a good lager. I'm not much on the style and generally prefer the citrus of an ale to the floral character of a lager. But it's good.

Very easy to drink but relatively plain/bland for what I've come to expect from rogue. That's the style though I guess. $3 for a 22 isn't a bad price.

Pours to a rocky white head and gold color. Aroma is grainy and toasty and not much else. Flavor is mild and easy, just what you expect for style. Good lager.

Served at the brewery, it was delivered to the table well above 50 degrees. For me, there was a little too much DMS (canned corn), but a good representation of a Lager Style. Clear, golden, light head that dissipated quickly, rich and medium bodied for a lager.

Would have been better cold.
