A nice bourbon rye overall. Pours a cloudy Amber with a tan head. Smells of cherries, strawberries and a bit of caramel and vanilla. Taste is crisp, like a pale ale, with some bourbon and vanilla. Had in the bottle.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from starcross -- cheers! Opened at a tasting of barrel-aged beers, and this one came across as distinctly "light". There’s some good rye flavor (somewhere between spiciness and earthiness), and the aroma of rye whisky is definitely there. However, it’s a bit too muddled and sticky, and it didn’t stand out next to a lot of the other beers we tried.

An aroma of rye whiskey and dried fruit with a hint of malt. Pours a clear bourbon color with an off white head with decent laci g. Tastes like a fruity rye whiskey with a sweet malt whiskey finish. Medium body.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Poured into a snifter.
3.75 A: Mildly hazed rose/light amber color. Two fingers of creamy beige head. Retention is pretty good and a short ring of lacing is left.
3.75 S: Hmm, this is interesting. To start, the rye malt isn’t nearly as strong as I was expecting. A lot of rye beers I’ve had would mop the floor with this one. That said, there’s TONS of rye whiskey aroma. It’s tangy, earthy, and boozy. Less of the spicy earthiness that comes with rye malt. Still it’s a very nice nose. Light caramel and toasty notes.
3.5 T: The taste is like the nose, but calmer. Less boozy than the nose suggests - indeed it’s pretty much undetectable. Tangy, earthy, leather rye whiskey. Spicy earthiness, caramel, toastiness, light non-sweet toffee.
3.5 M: Medium to heavier medium body. Good moderate carbonation. Super smooth with a light warming finish, but lacking creaminess.
3.5 D: Pretty good beer. Not great, but well balanced with easy drinkability.
