3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at the Chicago Beer Fest ’12. Pours a lightly hazed golden colored body with a finger-width, creamy, beige head that dissipates slowly and leaves a nice lacing. Aroma is thin, bready ryes with a touch of spiciness and a good amount of florals. A bit grainy with hints of citrus. Flavor is similar. A light, bready and grainy rye spice with some florals. Finishes with a few citrus notes and some light rye spices that dry and leave a light, clean bitterness. Medium length aftertaste following a lighter body and a moderate carbonation. Overall, this was decent, but nothing special. A bit thin, but easy drinking with some florals and bready rye spices.

On tap at CBF. Almost clear golden with small white head. Really malty and spicey aroma with rich malt. Flavor is spicey, off-dry malts, ehh, expected more.

An easy drinking ale. Prevalent but not edgey rye flavour, a decent pale ale level of IBU. Floral. Cloudy golden colour with a good lasting head. A bit above average mouthfeel. Bottle from February 2012, thanks FlandersNed.
