Rogue Red Fox Amber Ale
I read through it one time before that magic took place so let me try to recreate the highlights, though you'll likely be missing a lot of that awesome wit you are so accustomed to!
This is a beer brewed by Oregon Brewing Company in Newport, Oregon. The label says 100% Pure Rogue, which I'm guessing is so you know who brewed it. Oregon Brewing must be some legal name. Everything else on the label is in Japanese, for what reason I'll likely never know.
Searching in Google about this beer was a little confusing as there are a bunch of results about a beer made by Budweiser with exactly the same name. Anyway, from my memory and quick read, the beer had a caramel aroma. The flavors started like that too, but a bitter grassy and lemon component was very noticeable as well. Some bread dough and a bit of spice led you into the finish. Not bad and an easy drinker but there are many better for the dollar. And it's not worth buying again to do a better job with this review, so take that into consideration.
Justin Phillips, who also translated the Rogue Buckwheat Ale label for me. Thanks again!
