3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft in a sampler at the brewpub. Pours a cloudy copper color with a shett of eggshell-colored lace inside the glass. Virtually no aroma at all. Notes of toast, rye, bitter florals, sweet crackers, and brown sugar. Light-medium bodied, with a bitter, toasty mouthfeel and moderate carbonation. More character emerges as it warms but there isn’t much there.

Not what I expected. Pours a clear red brown. Interesting caramel quality is more pronounced than the rye spiciness. Very smooth on the tongue.
