3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
12oz bottled Jan 24, 2013. Served at 40F.
Pours lightly hazy golden amber with a one finger white head that leaves nice webs of lacing behind and recedes to a small cap.
Aroma is noble hops, grassy, earthy, touch sulfur, some lemon citrus, spicy rye, floral. Good to very good strength.
Flavor generally follows suit, noble hops with a grassy mildly sulfur taste, lemon citrus, spicy rye, some bready malt, mild to moderate sweetness in the middle, nice bitterness on the finish, minimal alcohol.
Mouthfeel is light to medium bodied, somewhat oily, good carbonation.
Light, refreshing and easy drinking, would be great for the warmer weather. I get a good bit of Pilsner qualities in this...like a hybrid of Prima Pils and a Pale Ale with a dash of rye. Pretty good...better than their regular Pale Ale.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
From the 12 fl. oz. bottle dated 01/13/15. Hazy pale yellow, heady pour. An old bottle picked up at a New York convenience store that has probably lost some of its character. Some toasted sweet maltiness in the taste, rye grain, and grassy hops. Light to medium body. The grainy malts are more forward in the taste and there is a strong peppery bitterness at the end. I think the hops have faded in 6 months.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pale golden pour with a thick white head. The nose is a bit bright and
fruity. Some light berry esters and a bit of spicy/citrusy hoppiness.
Very fresh and well balanced. I donít get much rye character at all,
but itís a tasty pale ale. Clean and crisp.

2.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
I didnít like this too much. The rye overpowers the hops in an untasty way. Just not that good

Pours deep gold with thin white head. Just hints of the rye. I also taste a bit of apple before a nice crisp but not overly bitter finish. Very drinkable.
