Morimoto Soba Ale

22 oz bottle, Total Wine, Perimeter, Atlanta, GA, USA. The usual Rogue, screen-printed presentation.
Very difficult to believe that I have not yet reviewed this brew, but here it goes.
Pour is a mid-orange with some nice soapy head. Head is persistent and leaves some sticky lace on the glass.
Nose and tastes have a mild sweetness. A balanced beer by any standards but if you put it in the context of Rogue’s, often over-hopped brews this is especially surprising. Reminds me a lot of an English Pale with the biscuity sweetness and the sensible ABV.
Very drinkable.
The beer also has a very creamy mouthfeel. Perhaps this comes from the Soba(?), but it adds to the drinkability.
Very tasty, the kind of low(ish) ABV, everyday drinking, balanced brew that one fins all too infrequently in the USA and especially surprising from a brewer like Rogue.
