3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 oz bottle purchased at Lukas in Kansas City, Missouri. The pour is a mostly clear golden, with a 1/2 inch white head that lasts. The aroma is soft citrus lemon and grapefruit, with a touch of the light spicy rye below that. Additionally, there is some cracker malt present. Fresh, though subdued nose. The taste is a gentle mix of the spiced rye and the cracker malt, on top of the citrus lemon and grapefruit hops. The hops have a sharp bitterness that I was not expecting from the nose. As with the nose, the taste is fresh, though pretty tame and subdued. The palate is light to medium bodied, finishes with hop bitterness, the spiced rye, and some earthiness. Overall, nicely drinkable though not terribly distinctive.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pint pour of crisp clear yellow with full finger head. Nose is mild, not overly hoppy. Plenty of rye and other grains, perhaps straw and grassy. Flavor is more enjoyable, with more rye, noticeable hops, and a clean finish. Light to medium body and quite drinkable. Not a favorite, but definitely a good one.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
A very light and refreshing beer. From a bottle - pours golden-ish and smells great. Got some hints of citrus in the smell and taste. Not particularly hoppy (but I didn’t expect it to be). Good beer.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours pale gold. Nose is lemons, very light citrus, resins, and pines. Flavor is some spicy and toasty malts, resinous, piney, and little to no citrus hop qualities. Smooth medium body with a heavy bitter finish. Athis beer is less than good-no great flavors stand out. Just shy of a hoppy beer- bitter and spicy. that’s about it. Bleh

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle pour. Strong belgian like aromas with the hops and citrus. Sediment from the bottle floats in this darker golden brew. Stronger bitterness. Long lasting head.

Bottle. Dark gold color. Good hop aroma. Dry malt flavor with lots of bitter, citrus hops. I can’t taste the rye, but this is a good pale ale.

Tap at Bottlebar East. Pours murky straw gold with medium white head, great lacing. Aromas of rindy citrus fruits, and rye. Taste is awesome: lemons, floral hops, juice, wood, apple, and malt. Finishes slightly bitter not too dry. Medium body. Balanced well. Nice beer

Pours a clear golden with small white head. Aroma of pine, grapefruit, rye spiciness. Tastes jumps out as pine bitterness, light but smooth body, flavor develops into sour rye, grapefruit and lemon, bitterness mellows and changes into spice with a slight sweetness and bread on the finish.
