Just like you, but different
Settle down in the cheap seats – Chatoe Rogue OREgasmic Ale, alright.
Brewed by Rogue Ales in the style of an American Pale Ale and unlikely as it sounds this is a rare visitor to the beer fridge from Newport, Oregon USA woop woop holla !!
A bit pint of 650ml of 7% ABV beer, power to the people!
This beer has all of 6 Ingredients, listed as being; Brewed using 100% OREGON Ingredients. Micro Barley Farm first growth Dare™ & Risk™ Malts; Rogue Micro Hopyard Willamette & first growth Independent Hops, Pacman Yeast and Free Range Coastal Water.
Yes well that’s all well and good, sounds like a college project beer, mention everything, everyone and do it in that “it really important to know” way. Very American, they should learn the less is more thing.
and that’s before I got to open it. When I do it pours the muddy brown colour of a beer, I wish I could pick the aroma, I can’t discern one though, and that’s strange but not weird.
And almost as a religious experience akin to a rapture this has head for afwica! Get in!!!
Wow! hang on a bit, that’s a lot interesting, there’s a about a bazillion things that I want to taste first and they’re all interesting, for a bit of a back-burner on the aroma this has the goods in the taste department.
Absolutely a Pale Ale. Done. Delivered. Winner!
This is then already without a doubt just a nice beer. There is the sharpness of taste that you get from the hops, but then there is the lovely warmness of the caramel malts that makes this just plain old interesting. Just all over a fine and dandy thing. Woop wwo holla!
And the head, well that’s still about it’s business, I’d sit and marvel at that for a bit, except that it’s between me and the beer beneath. And Marvel at the drink beneath I do, it carries it hops and it has this marvellous (I want to do that in the Tony Greig Accent) creaminess that I don’t know how to describe. To go another cricket thing this one is straight off the middle of the bat. (None of which the Americans will get).
Give it up then for the pdubyah-o-meter…. and this in and of it’s genre is 9/10, arbitrary thing from an equally arbitrary number, and if ever there was a thing to aspire to this would be a thing. I’d dial back the self promotion label probably. I’d never dial back on the hops, the malts, and all that thing that makes the thing that this is.
Buy this, if you like IPA and American Pale you you don’t like this I’d refund you. Seriously.
