A preamble: I don’t generally write about beers, because there’s not a whole lot to say overall, IMO, when it comes to beers, beer drinking, brewing, etc.. Also, I gave up beer drinking in general. There are folks out there who are a lot more invested in the practice than I am, and I’m generally fine with leaving it at that. However, in this instance, I feel behooved to write about beers in the “wacky” category (which seems to be the general trend with beers out of Rogue brewery) and I will do so here.
Appearance: A golden brown that went through the car wash and got washed out with yellow. I like the color and I imagine it is due to the lemon flavoring that it is tinged with yellow.
Smell: The lemony goodness of Pine-Sol, baby! Plus, a bit of a disinfectant-y alcohol aroma. Not terrible, if you like lacquer.
Taste: Mild, bland, with a lemon chaser. Its not the worst beer I’ve tasted, but it’s the first that made me think someone accidentally dropped a gallon of lemon juice (or worse, the aforementioned Pine-Sol, infra) into the brewing vat. Does leave a pleasant lemony aftertaste on the palate that I enjoy.
Feelers: Seems a bit over-carbonated, but otherwise crisp.
Overall: Not something so wretched that I cannot stand drinking it, this beer is actually drinkable to me (and I generally avoid beers as a rule now). However, it is doubtful that I will be able to finish this 750 ML bottle. I imagine this is light-years better than the Rogue Sriracha Stout sitting in my fridge. Thanks for reading.
