Glen, Rogue Ales, Newport Oregon
And we're back...On a recent adventure to the coast, we dropped by the Rogue Brewpub in Newport, Oregon. It was a hot day, but the Glen from Rogue hit the spot - both cold and refreshing.
It pours a honey hue with a medium head.
The aroma is mild hop, but not overly flowery. The hop is curbed by the malt aroma that arrives a little later.
It is hoppy, but smooth. There isn't much bitterness in the body, which is medium/full and velvety. Bitterness does arrive in the finish with a malt presence which gives it body.
The aftertaste is bitterness with malt that weighs on the palate keeping the hop from dominating the finish.
