look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

Pale gold color with a soft chill haziness. Laces with a thick coat after the inch of foam reduced to a sheet.

Super dry aromas of grassiness, mineral water, mild pepper, light vegetable quality, some earthiness, and a familiar yeast character. Nice.

Really zippy with a crispy bite. Grassy, with an apple skin fruitiness that is very light. Earthy hops have that peppery quality that I noted in the nose. Latent floral finish with yeast esters that evolve from early fruitiness to dry spice. Excellent.

Carbonation is a tad too low, but the body wetness is great. Has a mouth to it. Really drinkable. 4

Awesome pils. Tastes great.

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.25

Pours an effervescent straw color with 2 fingers of pearl colored head. Slightly cloudy , nice head retention & lacing

S: Bready, crackery & soapy

T: Follows the nose, plus leafy hops up front. Flinty dryness, leafy hops & soapiness as this warms, some yeastiness. Finishes dry, soapy with some chalkiness & leafy hops

MF: Medium bodied, firm carbonation, alright balance

This isn't really working for me, probably the liberty hops. Just not a very good pils, not terrible, almost tastes stale. Drinks okay, not easy. I grow more skeptical of Rogue with each new beer I try, so many dissapointments, so few good ones

650ml bottle poured into my tall pilsener glass 26/7/13

A slightly hazy pale yellow with lots of sediment being pushed around by streams of growing bubbles, two fingers of loose foam is still around at the bottom of my glass but only leaves a few patches of random of lace

S sweet malt, honey, herbal hops, grassy notes, some cracker and a little citrus

T not far from the nose a little sweet and grainy but I rather like it, a hint of spice, not a bad tasting pil

M light bodied, soft carbonation stops short of foam, a hint of spicy hops, cracker and citrus on the finish

O my bombers gone already, this one sunk like a ship and that says something, something I'd drink again for sure

I'm not familiar with the hop but it tastes noble to me when I was expecting a big American hop, maybe my minds playing tricks on my but my empty glass says it all

Poured into a pint glass out of a 22oz bomber.

Pours a nearly clear straw yellow with a half finger fizzy white head. Not very good head retention and no lacing to speak of.

There is bread and a little bit of biscuit in the aroma with a heavy hint of grassy hops.

There is a bit more malt in the flavor than I was expecting with caramel and biscuit. Grass and hay make up the hop flavor along with an assertive bitterness. It ends with some lingering sweetness and is moderately sticky.

Overall, an ok pils but far from my favorite. Glad I got to try but it won't become a regular.
