    Not your average lager, a hazy yellow body with some tiny yeast floaters, the head was average but left some decent laceing. Flavor centered around honey, and grainy malts, some grassy hops as well. Big, and full bodied, a nice spin on the style.

    Pours a cloudy gold color with a healthy white head. Very malty aroma with some grassy hops. Has a pretty bitter taste, not very smooth, fairly carbonated, but it's very clean flavored. Not a great lager, but certainly drinkable.

    It pours a hazy, non-transparent light honey color with thick white head and copious lace. An aroma of sweet and sour malts, faint hops, lemon-citrus, wild grasses, and a choice spice blend. The mouthfeel is a bit thin. Flavors of sweet yet sour malts, bread and yeast, hops, lemon, grass, and spiciness. Excellent!

    Enjoyed this lager quite alot. Mostly unremarkable, however it was fairly enjoyable. Fairly reminescent of most Euro Pils I have had, and a bit like draft swill in the UK. Dry, bit hoppy, skunky, but not terribly so. Some apple, and trace pineapple, bit citrusy perhaps, like light citrus. Refreshing, good quality beer, a lager with finesse perhaps, and I am very glad that in BC we pay only 4.40 for a bottle, not the 9 and 10 other people report.

    Hmmm... a lager from Rogue. Interesting. Pours a yellow colour (slightly on the pale side) with a big frothy white head, that has decent retention, popping a bubble at a time, leaving some patchy lace. Carbonation is normal, with a medium size bubble, turning into a smaller one a little after breathing. Good barley malt nose with hints of hop. Again, Irish style lager, so does not have to be anything crazy, and this one succeeds in the taste department, with good bread and grains, and well mixed with the hop (more hoppy than most lagers) and notes of apple in the aftertaste. Very well executed to be non-offensive to most swill drinkers, but have a little more punch to it than most lagers.

    There is nothing Irish at all about this beer. It isn't red enough, it isn't creamy enough, and it's not hoppy enough. I is barely an average beer..........but far better than BMC swill.

    Brew pours clear gold with a noisy white cap, the retention for the style is good. Aroma is pleasant, apple, grainy malts, metal, and mild Euro skunk hops. Flavour is very nice light and crisp and has a very sweet clean finish. Beer feels light in the mouth and has good carbonation. The grainy malt character is balance well with the light hop character of the beer, I think they nailed it perfect for the style. Apples and grass work their way in to the flavor with the odd faint skunk. I love this beer to much I think, it is perfect for just being a lager and I would find myself drinking myself stupid with it if it didn’t cost me $10.00 a bottle.

    Pours out a dark golden color with little head to speak of. Deep aroma, and a malty flavor. Crisp and clean but nothing really to interesting here. Nothing to complain about though. Picked this one up for St. Patrick's day but didn't get around to drinking it until now. Glad I tried it, but probably wont again.

    Tried as Kell's Irish Style Lager
    The beer poured a translucent reddish gold colour with a thin off-white head. The aroma was grainy malt, some floral hops, and a nutty tone. The mouthfeel was medium bodied and medium carbonation. The flavour was similar to the aroma, with the grainy notes a bit more dominant in the taste.

    Once again, in Alberta, Rogue 650ml bottles are highly overpriced.
    Poured out a huge lumpy white crown that takes its time to vanish while leaving some random lacing. The beer is a crystal clear light yellow gold. The smell is nothing too special: grains, apples - normally those two equal shit but not in this case, weakly floral, faint fake pineapple. The taste is nothing special either - non-offensive grainy tastes rule followed by a well placed and well balanced hoppy bitterness. Some pear and slight spice asa well. Smooth and carbonated to my liking, solid middle and finishes just like a Euro Pil. Average lager. Spending 9$ on this is nuts. A forgettable product with no real flaws.
