Nice head. Orange yellow hue with notes of earthy citrus in scent as well as taste. Refreshing and crisp with a nice rye balance to the finish. All in all a pretty nice golden rye.

Clear golden with a white head. Aroma is sweet, light earthy, light spice. Medium bodied. Flavor is a bit more complex and enjoyable. Rye spice, a bit of fruity hops, light sweet malts. Easy going rye but rather enjoyable.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Purchased at Binnyís in Chicago, IL; enjoyed at home on a cold Sunday while making some chili. Appearance is a cloudy, lightly dark gold with a thin white head. Aroma has a unique hop profile, citrus and hop resin notes, along with rye malt. Taste goes down citrusy, floral, with a light bitterness. In a way itís like a less abrasive Two Hearted, but doesnít really taste like that at all. Itís enjoyable, good Sunday afternoon beer.

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 didnít 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. thatís 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.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Dark gold color. Good hop aroma. Dry malt flavor with lots of bitter, citrus hops. I canít taste the rye, but this is a good pale ale.
