Golden copper. Crisp sweet malt, strong honey, light pepery aroma. Flavor is all right. Honey filled, light spice, some maltiness. Finish is sweet and peppery. A decent lage but not great.

Light amber brown color. Very tempting nose of rye upfront and then subtle hints of grapefruit in the background. Med-Full bodied. Perfectly balanced. Hoppy start leads to a solid rye backbone with delicious spiciness that resonates throughout the mouth. A touch sweet. Rye notes continue through the finish. Excellent.
