Considered one of the early prototypes of the American Amber style (and still one of the “Classical Examples” of the BJCP Style Guidelines), Rogue continues to nail this style. The color is the expected amber with excellent clarity and a light tan head with excellent head retention. The aroma is an even balance between the citrusy, resiny hops and rich caramel, bready malt. The body follows suit with the aroma with the prototypical American hops and caramel malts balanced by a light roasted malt to add some complexity. The body is a bit chewy from the heavy use of caramel malts but enough bitterness (53 IBU) is present so that it doesn’t finish too heavy on the palate. Still a great American Amber after all these years!
