New Town Beer Festival. It may have been the hot weather and lack of shade at the event, but it was way too hoppy for me. I know I would have enjoyed it more in a different environment, but compared to the other offerings at the event it was a bit overwhelming.

Can shared with Goetz. Purchased at Sicilianos in GR. really nice beer. My favorite of the evening bouts a slightly reddish copper with one finger of white head. Aroma is malty pine. Really nice beer.

Poured into a perfect pint.
4.0 A: Moderately hazed yellow orange color. Two fingers of frothy off-white head. Retention is about average and a good sized ring of lacing is left.
4.0 S: The rye in this is potent and pleasurable. Earthy and spicy, it gives its distinct aroma. Flowery and herbal hops underneath. A touch of yeast and a moderate neutral malt sweetness.
4.0 T: Tastes as good as it smells. Pretty much the same flavors as in the nose. Earthy, spicy rye, bready yeastiness, mild bitterness, floral and herbal hops, and neutral malt sweetness. There’s also a mild peachy fruitiness.
4.0 M: Medium body. Good moderate carbonation. Pleasantly creamy and super smooth.
4.0 D: Solid beer all around. Pick this up if you’re a fan of rye.

Hazy orange color, steady white head. Malty, citrus, a bit of rye in the nose. Medium-bodied. Lemony, citric, sweetish fruity hoppy flavor. A bit plasticky citrusness and alcohol in the finish,

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Light golden color with a tall, lasting cream colored head. Mild, may I say disappointing so, aromas. Hint of rye, light grass and hint of malt. Bits of orange and citrus. Not bad, just not there. Light flavors follow. No real feel from the rye. Some mild rye components mingle with pale grains and mild citrus. Obviously plenty of proteins as the head is very thick and meringue like. Seems watery and weak. 2/10

This beer didn’t cut it, grassy aroma, not much flavor and a really soapy looking head. At least they they the style right.....It was a Pale ale.

Poured into shaker a hazy gold with small short lasting head with minimal lace. Aroma was rye malts and floral. In the taste the rye stood out with a bit of grass and spice. Aftertaste rememded me a bit of potato.

Pours a cloudy, murky yellow color with minimal head retention. It does have some lacing though. You can taste the rye here which is nice. The spicy notes come through at the end and the beer has a nice bite to it. A very solid rye beer!

Bottle@John Hancock Tower, Chicago. Clear golden color, thin white head. Citric hop aroma. Balanced hoppy flavor with a dry finish. Medium body, medium carbonation. Not bad by itself, but an excellent pairing with brie cheese!
