Chatoe Rogue First Growth Single Malt Ale

Name – Chatoe Rogue First Growth Single Malt Ale
Country – United States
Type – American Blonde Ale

Appearance – Poured a slightly hazy orangish amber color with a big white head that left some lacing on the glass.

Smell – The main smell picked up is lemon with some grainy and black pepper notes.

Taste – Quite a complex taste.  It is sweet with the lemon flavor pretty strong but there is a honey presence as well.  There is some hop presence mixed in there along with the black pepper.  A little yeasty taste as well as it finishes dry and crisp.

This is my first sampling of the home grown Rogue ingredient brews and I have to say I enjoyed it.  Blonde ales are normally my thing but this one was very nice and I think it is great for the upcoming summer, or the already present summer in South Florida.  After some disappointments from Rogue in some of my last samplings I was happy to get a hit here on this one.

Overall Grade – B+

    I’m actually writing on this tonight or tomorrow. I thought it was a mediocre beer as far as flavor/enjoyment, but the idea behind it is awesome.
