Pours a hazy golden with orange notes and a large foamy white head that laced. Aroma of orange and lemon zest along with some cereal grains. Flavor of bitter grapefruit, lemon zest and Cheerios. A bit harsh and dry but I dig it.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Blah. A very bland beer. Aroma was very weak. Grains, lemon and notes of citrus. Pour was a nice bubbly light gold with (surprise!) a ton of sediment floating in the glass. Taste was weird. Started with bitter hops and grains then seemed to turn to water mid swallow. Quick dry finish with no lingering flavor. Nice carbonation. Very boring beer that may be better on a hot summer day.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
a nice golden spicy ale, with straw and malt forward and a touch of grassy and lightly citrus hops. feels a bit like their regular ("midwestern" i suppose?) pale, with added body and some rye complexity. itís not a brilliant or particularly remarkable beer, but itís very well done and pretty tasty and easy-drinking. a nice clean rye pale. iíll certainly add this to my regular rotation.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
bottle. poured nice with nice frothy white head with good retention and stuck around for a while. Some decent lacing. smells of bread, spice(pepper), hay, grass, and some hops. i did not get a lot of citrus but was there. Pours golden straw with slight haze. Taste of decent hop bitterness with spiciness from the rye, a touch of resin. Did get nice citrus hop flavor as well. Beer was light and refreshing with lively carbonation with a medium length finish that was bright.
