3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Golden color beer that lacked the rye its name suggests. It had a decent malt flavor before a somewhat spicy finish. Not bad.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.
