22 oz. decanted into pint glass

A: Clear gold color. The initial pour developed a pretty thick white head, but it dissipated quickly to a thin film on top of beer. Minimal lacing. Stray bubbles can be seen racing to the top.

S: Primarily grass, husky grains, fresh baked bread.

T: Crisp grass and grain flavor early, followed by a quick bit of sharp bitterness with finally a slight metallic taste. There is a bready malt base throughout the drink.

M: Goes down nice and easy. Medium bodied. There's a nice crispness to the beer that gives it an addictive quality.

O: Essentially a higher class lawnmower beer. I could session this all day long and be extremely happy. Really no complaints here. It's pretty uninteresting and could use some more assertive flavors, but I don't think this beer aims to be anything more than a session beer.

A: Pours a clear, shimmering gold with a puffy white head. Looks about like every other pale lager on the planet.

S: Aromas of caramel, apples, biscuits, and minerals are easily detected on the nose. Not much in the way of hop aromas.

T: The entry is smooth and sweet, leading to notes of grass, green apples, heavy cream, caramel, lemon, minerals, and biscuits. The finish is smooth and straight-forward with a combination of caramel, cream, and apple notes. In the end, it's almost like drinking a caramel apple.

F: Medium-bodied and relatively dry, this is far from the heaviest beer in Rogue's lineup. Left me wishing it had a bit more heft to it.

O: I don't really know what Rogue was going for here. In my opinion, this is just an amped-up version of Harp Lager (that green apple taste is almost identical to one of Harp's flavor components). I just don't see the point of this beer. It's not all that appealing.
