Chatoe Rogue First Growth Good Chit Pilsner, the sixth Chatoe Rogue GYO offering I have found this year from Rogue Brewing, poured a pale straw color, with mild carbonation cutting through the crystal clear body and feeding a foamy, bright white head. The nose carried a bready, sticky rice malt over a soft but prickly grass and mineral undertone.
Rogue Good Chit Pilsner opened very faithfully to the nose, with the sweet, sticky rice at least equal with the dry grain flavors, lending a thickness to the mouthfeel and sweetness that seemed out of style and dirtier than the typical pilsner. As the minerals and grassy notes (I’m assuming from the hops) came through and cut through the sweetness they carried a slight metallic twang to them. The ale ended sweet, with a somewhat medicinal bitterness.
Chatoe Rogue Good Chit Pilsner isn’t as bad as I read the above description of above when taken as a whole, but it doesn’t really stick the landing.
