This Gold Medal winner in the specialty beer category at the 1996 GABF is a popular brew among the rotating taps at Big Time. The addition of organic flaked rye to the grist results in a complex malt character that is smooth and satisfying. Three seperate Noble hop additions help balance out the flavor. OG 13.8 Plato

Thin yellow. Lite hops, touch of bread in the aroma. Like an American Pale Ale made with Rye. Pretty hoppy start. Malty sweetness in the finish. A tale of two beers.

An interesting aroma of a little nuttiness, a lot of caramel, some citrus notes, and a touch of bubble-gum. The aroma was very Fuller's ESB-like. Sweet flavor with a moderate to light bitter finish.

Bronze with an immediately dissipating head and have a sweet--almost honeyed aroma--but too faint to have much of an impact. I do enjoy the offkey flavor endowed by flaked rye--which nicely complements the hopping. A satisfying brew with an easy-drinking rye touch.

Golden color beer that lacked the rye its name suggests. It had a decent malt flavor before a somewhat spicy finish. Not bad.

This beer was an orange color out of the tap with a white head that left a ring and strong lace all the way down. Citrus/orange flavors over a thin body. The finish is so dry that you get more thirsty as you drink it. Goes down easy and is good with a sandwich.
