"Rogue's annual holiday offering, Santa's Private Reserve, is a variation of the classic Saint Rogue Red, but with double the hops--including Hops and Barley grown and harvested at Rogue Farms. A double hopped Red Ale, reddish in color with a roasty, malty flavor and a well balanced spruce finish." —brewer
"Rogue's annual holiday brew, an American Winter Warmer that's not spiced, but hopped old-school, with plenty of Chinook and Centennial hops. This year's packaging boasts snowflakes that glisten on the painted label. Um. OK. That's nice. Moving on.... Tawny color glows in the light; the killer froth leaves big, sticky rings of lace after each sip. Huge cookie and caramel aroma, then slightly piney, spicy and citric from the hops' very aromatic. Rogue-style all the way, clean yeast leaves the malt and hops to duke it out. Rich, malty flavor gives suggestion of caramel and cake batter with an undertone of dark bread. Hops wield bitterness to balance, with lots of flavor on top of that. Citric, pine, spruce and deep herbal flavors come to mind. By far one of the best winter seasonals around. An easy-drinking, warming and flavorful ale that runs through hop fields with a tasty maltiness by its side, and weird glistening snowflakes illuminating the skies above." —BeerAdvocate Magazine
