2002 (drank 8/2003) 1.5 pint brown bottle with following info: 13º Plato, 77 AA, 34 IBU, 3.2º L. Would abv be too much to ask? Ingredients list including Amarillo hops, Juniper Berries (like in Gin), and Pacman yeast.
Aroma: A light hop nose of mild bouquet.
Appearance: Pale, Bottle describes it as saffron in color, eh, looks like Budweiser to me, color wise, but a nice thin white head that lasts and laces wonderfully.
Flavor: Tastes generally like a pale ale. Taste is almost backwards; the hops, mostly floral starts the taste, then fades over to a mild malt sweetness. The citric/hops bitter comes as an almost after-aftertaste, but lingers for about 2 days.
Mouthfeel: Moderate body, which seems a touch heavy for the style, but not detraction. The heavy hops leaves a bit of a pucker, and the malt leaves the lips a bit sticky.
Overall Impression: Regardless of advice you have received in the past; don’t pass up this yellow snow. The juniper berries on the label concerned me, I can’t stand Gin, but I didn’t note any gin-like tastes here. Like all Rogue products, this is very well made, and a tongue pleaser. Drinkability, hmm, thinking this isn’t for everyone, but I enjoyed it. The taste is very drinkable, but the aftertaste and the firm alcohol level (guessing around 6%) will probably slow you down. If you’re a hophead, scoop up some yellow snow.
