#149, Latona, Rogue Ales, Newport Oregon
Apparently with only two ingredients: Special Aromatic malt and Rainier hops, Latona Ale is a delicious addition to Rogues expansive list of ales.
It pours a cloudy brilliant amber.
The aroma is very subtle - slight sweetness and slight hop.
The hop builds in the body. The sweetness is curved by the bitterness that arrives in the medium body and at the back of the tongue. Honey and earthy bright hop at the end. It is smooth and refreshing.
The aftertaste is bitter and hoppy and very fresh.
