3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a cloudy gold with a medium white head. Aroma is pilsner malts and light grains. Taste really is good. Initially, you get the grains which fade almost immediately, giving way to a citrus rind hoppy bitterness. The finish is pilsner malts with a little maple syrup. Not bad and easy to drink.

Resin and floral hop aroma. Distinct rye flavor mixed with a pilsner type malt. Hop bitterness resembles the rye malt, but lingers in the mouth.

2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Appearance:golden-orange, with a scant, soapy white head and a million floaties in suspension. Aroma: honey-lemon cough drops, poppyseed bread, apricot, and candied orange peel. Taste: grapefruit and blood-orange bitterness, with a light, crackery malt undertone. Finish: dry, citrusy bitterness, with a barest hint of toasty rye malt. Notes: Frankly, was hoping for more. Appearance was unappetizing, and whatever rye there is in this beer is woefully understated. Would have benefited from more malt balance against the citrus-heavy hops, where the rye spice really could come out to play. The aroma was really nice, though.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tap. Thin white head, hazy darker golden yellow. Light rye, slight citrus and Bells house yeast aromas. Touch grassy and minerally, the rye is faint, dry enough. Lighter to medium body with tight carbonation. Easy drinking but nothing terribly interesting.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a deep golden color with a lot of yeast chunks in it and topped by a creamy, off white head. Aroma has a light bitterness, some mild rye spicy presence, light lemon with a light grainy finish. Flavor has a very nice pure bitterness early that carries through the entire tasting. Middle has light honey flavors kick in with some lemon citrus and light spicy flavors to finish. Body is light/modest with a dryness imparted from the strong hops bitterness and high, fine carbonation. Overall a solid and enjoyable brew with lots of flavor.
