Picked up a bomber from Total Wine Arrowhead 4-15-17 for $7.99. No bottling date visible but suspect this is older given the sediment at the bottom.

Beer poured pale yellow with a decent white head that has some hang time going.

Nose is grainy with hints of noble hops.

Taste is classic pils, bready and grainy with a nice refreshing clean light hop bite at the end.

Mouthfeel is crisp and clean, classic pils.

Overall this is a very well made pils that is definitely worth having if you come across it and like the style!

Ahhhh----some good chit...I suppose.
From the 22 oz bomber in a snifter. This above average pils pours a lightly hazy
straw color with a nice head of white foam that settles to a thick ring, thin light
layer, and showcases nice light lacing. Nose of nice light honey malts, light grain notes,
and subtle cracker. Flavors exceed the nose by presentation with grain and cracker flavors
mingling with a light lemon zest and hop flavor that is nicely balanced and herbal. Nice
body; medium light mouth feel, light body, medium carbonation, and a grain finish that
is perfect for the style.

Overall, a pils done right by the good folks from Rogue.

Cheers

I feel this could have been a bit better, but not too bad for an American pils. Average crackery aroma and taste, veru grainy, not enough snap in the hops. Decent body and finish, nice pour

From notes taken 03/24/16:

Unfiltered, hazy, chunk-suspended clarity, bright straw gold, with fluffy, fine, chunky, uneven, muffintop-looking head of off-white. Surprisingly good retention. Smells like lemons, biscuits or crackers, yeast, metal. Mildly bready-sweet, cleanly citric, very crackery, grassy, grainy, even a little boozy. Faint melon or cucumber-like notes. Floral bitterness throughout, almost rindy or soapy. Medium-bodied, dense with not quite fine tingly suds, crisp and fresh. Tastes like a German as much as it does a Czech.

2011 vintage. Rating set to current average.

Aroma is lightly sherry, with cracker malt.

Flavor reveals substantial dyacetyl presence, with a hint of sherry and a crisp, fairly bitter finish. Flavors didn't jive well together.
