Rogue Jacksonville Anniversary Ale

unknown ABV.

Susan picked this up last weekend when we were in Oregon, after a quick shopping trip to Harry and David. She chose wisely, as this offering is rather yummy.

It has some great sweet malty aroma, with a fairly thick syrupy feel that coats the glass. It fizzed loudly when I popped the top, but didn't have much carbonation after pouring it. Luckily it doesn't taste flat. What it does taste like is malt and sweetness with just enough nuttiness to remind you this is a brown ale. It isn't particularly well balanced, as the sweetness overpowers the nuttiness, but it is very yummy. I tend not to pick a lot of sweet malty beers, so this is something I'm not used to. But I like it.
