Rogue American Amber Ale

One of the more interesting things about this beer is that it appears that George Clooney posed for the label artwork. When I poured this into the pint glass, I sat for about a minute just smelling it. It had a very flowery, pleasant smell to it, very pleasing to the senses. The flavor was hard to pin down because there was so much of it. It had a fresh hop flavor, a slight maltiness, and overall was, for lack of a better word, warming. Hard to describe, but this is one of those winter night kind of beers (now if only our winter nights were cold, I could really enjoy this). Plus, really nice label, so it shoots down my theory that bad beers make up for it with good labels.
