3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tap at Rattle N Hum. Pale amber gold pour. The nose is a bit hoppy with a little bit of orange peel and a whiff of light citrus as well. Fruity and a bit chewy but the rye malt is very well-hidden. Softly hoppy on the aroma but the bitterness is actually quite assertive. As it warms up there is a little bit of diacetyl – which I don’t recall ever seeing in a Bear Republic beer. A touch of light spice on the finish. It’s okay – but it’s not great.

2.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 3/20
lot of floaters, not what I expected from this beer and it akes away from this beer considerable as far as I am concerned. It has a nice flavor and taste but I cant get past the floaters and who says these beers have to be cloudy, I would prefer some filtration
When I brew this beer it will filter it no matter the style says.

Enjoyed on tap at Cole’s. A nice summer beer. Ginger ale appearance, however a lovely white head and lots of lace. Some rye edge,complexity, above average mouthfeel despite assertive carbonation. Good hop bitterness, very drinkable.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tap at BT> Pours a clean mostly clear deep gold with a nice white head. Aroma is really fresh pungent citrus hops, light earthy tones and flowery- also good spicy earthy, almsot woodsy rye bread notes. Flavor is even more rye especially as it warms a bit, light woody, grassy but still lots of good orange and citrus hoppiness, crisp and floral in the end. Very nice.
