The aroma has a fruity sweetness - malts. A hazy amber pour, in my case, no head what-so-ever and no lacing. The taste is less sweet than the nose would indicate. Initially malty then the rye/ grain flavors kick in followed by a nice hoppy bitter finish. A slight metallic aftertaste is present. Medium-light body with moderate carbonation. Overall, I liked the combination of flavors this beer provided. Nice beer Bluegrass!

F0BAB 2010: Amber b0died with a decent f0amy head, This had a fruity n0se with a t0uch 0f rye and an 0ddly 0ff bitterness. The flav0r was a bit malty f0r style, bready, with an increase in the h0ppy fruitiness and bitterness. N0t bad at all.

BBB63 (5963) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - NOV 12, 2010
FoBAB 2010: Pours a glowing sunset copper hue with a lasting frothy head and good lace. The aroma has notes of red rye, bready and brown malts, some tropical fruit esters, light resiny hops, minerally and earthy with a raw tannic oak overtone. The taste starts with a light bitterness and rye snap, fruity acidity and a grainy astrengent tone. The finish is very dry and tannic, light chewing on a teabag. While the oak adds an interesting change, it still suffers slightly for lack of depth has well the fading hops caused by barrel aging. Needed more dry and/or wet hopping prior to service. Drinkable brew all told.
