Rogue Ale's "St. Rogue Red Ale"
Amber Ale (ABV 5.2%)

[Best served in a Shaker glass]

Rating: 3.1/5.0

Aroma: 7/10
Appearance: 3/5
Taste: 6/10
Palate: 3/5
Overall: 12/20

The pour was a medium brown with an average sized (1-2 fingers) almost beige creamy head that was mostly diminishing and had fair lacing.

The aroma started out with a nice scent of spruce hops and a hint of citrus but quickly became overpowered by toasted caramel malts and a sweet moldy yeast with notes of raisons, plums and brown sugar.

The taste at first sip was lightly sweet and malty with a nice hint of caramel and brown sugar then progressed into a slightly bitterer flavor with a dose of fruit at the end. The flavor was left to linger for a nice long time, bringing out just a little more of the hop characteristic in this brew.

Mouthfeel was just above light in body and dry in texture at first but finished a tad bit watery with a very mild carbonation.

Overall a unique tasting Ale with the sweet and bitter flavors complimenting each other quite well.
