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.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at champs. Hazy gold with thin white head with good retention. Aroma is hay and straw. Flavor is the same plus a little peppery spiciness. Creamy mouthfeel. Strange beer: Tastes like a hoppier spicier Oberon.

Bottle: pours hazy, cloudy golden color with a lovely white head. Aroma is wonderful...big houseful of piney, and earthy tones. Taste is bitter, but still bright with some citrus. Nice beer.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 ounce bottle, Batch 11695, packaged on 1/14/2013. Served in a nonic pint glass, the beer pours a hazy gold color with an inch and a half white head. The head stays around a long time, and there’s also a good amount of lacing. The brew smells like bready/grainy malt, rye, citrusy hops, and some grassy hops. The taste is similar to the aroma, but there’s also the addition of some light peppery spice. There’s a nice bittersweet finish in this brew. Mouthfeel/body is light/medium, it’s a bit creamy, but also refreshing with good carbonation. Would be a great beer on a hot day, but it’s still good on a 25 degree day, too. I like this brew, I’d buy it again. $9.99 a 6-pack.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. The aroma has a strong yeast smell to it. The taste is rather light. Would be a good summertime beer, not sure I get the release timing. A good hop presence throughout.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
Poured from a 12 ounce bottle. Pours a hazy gold to copper with a nice white head of crisp foam. The aroma is sort of grainy, spicy, skunky. Odd. I hope its not skunked. Taste confirms it isn’t. The rye comes through strongly in this one. A bit of rye spice lingers on the back of the tongue. Nice carbonation. Fairly tingly.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Pours a hazy gold, thin head with light lacing. Earth and grain in the nose. The flavor is nicely complex, with pronounced grapefruit and pine. The rye adds an interesting twist to the taste. Smooth finish, considering the initially pronounced bittering. Overall, a pretty decent beer.
