COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A German, a Belgian and an American walk into a bar. This isn’t a joke, but a modern tale of Rye Ale making—rooted in a rich family legacy. Our brew resembles a German Roggeinbier, but is eccentric enough to skew Belgian with its seven unique malts. Seven! This crisp beer has been crafted with just the right mix of spicy rye, distinctive malt flavor, and hoppiness making it an all-American home run. Let your palate branch out with this winning ale

Bottle @ Brad’s house. Pours a clear dark orange appearance with a cream colored head. Spicy, resiny hoppy, chewy caramel, rye aroma. Slight metallic note. Fairly spicy rye, toasty malty, herbal, a touch fruity, earthy flavor. Not bad.

Tap at Lyndale Tap House. Thanks to JK for dropping the location into his rating - that’s what brought me down here. Clear amber pour with a white head. Very nicely balanced rye spicyness and sweetness. Well done, enjoyable session beer.

Picked up a single 12-oz bottle at Heritage Liquors in Maplewood, Minnesota. Pours a golden pale colored brew with a decent sized off-white head that slowly dissipates to a lumpy white head and some spotty lacing. Aroma reminds me of a northern woods cabin hot dish. Scents of golden grain malt, some earthy spices, a hint of potato, some rye bread, a hint of honey and pine. Taste is medium bodied, average carbonation with flavors of multi-grain malt, rye, and extra grassy hops. Finish is semi-dry, toasted medium malts with a lingering spicy dry hop aftertaste.

Tap at the Lyndale Tap House. Brown beer. Mild aroma of malt and grains with some hops. Flavor has a rye character, with more grain here, and enough hops to remind you they are there. Very much like a lightly hopped American pale ale.

My initial thought that this was good--and at first, I thought I sensed possible passion fruit notes. But with a bigger sip, and every subsequent sip, this was pretty awful. Vegetal, bitter, ack. Huge head--very big head. Bottle.

Bottle. Pours a golden color with big gushing head. I gave up on drinking this out of a glass because it was so carbonated. Straw, grainy, earthy aromas. Vegetal, grainy, slightly tangy flavors. Not a fan.

Had this at the 2012 Twin Cities Beer Festival. Nice amber, too much banana/clove taste.

piscator34 (1965) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - NOV 15, 2012
Draft sample. Gold in colour with fairly strong carbonation. Mild aromas of grainy malt, hay-like hops, and a bit of spice. Dry and spicy malted rye notes upfront on the palate, along with more hay and a bit of white pepper. Light bodied and dry, but not voerly hoppy. Sessionable, but not overly interesting. Perhaps a touch bland.

dark gold to amber pour with a thin head. pale malt and grainy rye aroma with some hints of grassy hop. flavour is on the lighter side, more of the same though with a grainy malty body, hint of spicy rye and light hop presence. Agreeable enough though.

Bottle. Really not very good. Carbonated beyond belief, some off flavors...i dunno, the rye did nothing for me on this.
