On tap at Bold City. It poured clear deep gold with thin white head. The aroma is mostly floral hops with some spice in the background. The taste is a bit bright with spice hops moving into floral hops and a modest level of sweet malts and wheat. It is concluded by a dry nearly refreshing sensation along with a lingering sense of sweet light skinned fruity esters.

GT2 (8741) - San Diego County, California, USA - JUL 25, 2009
Pours a fairly clear yellow with a small white cap that has no retention and no lacing. Aroma of corn, lemon zest, rye bread, but overall fairly watery. Taste is light and refreshing with a nice bite of rye spiciness. Not bad but a little too watery to be a good session beer.

Immy (1955) - Virginia Beach, USA - MAY 3, 2009
On tap at the brewery. Hazy gold with no head. Spiced caramel and rye nose. The wheat overcomes most of the rye flavors, and a mild citrus tang. Not a bad drinker.

Oakes (12789) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 12, 2009
Amber colour. Spicy rye with some caramel. Spicy, slightly chewy rye note. Good balance. This showcases the rye very well. Itís a good session beer, definitely on the easy drinking side of things, with just a moderate level of bitterness.

Pours a hazy yellow with a white head. Aroma is wheat, orange and grain. Flavor has some vanilla and lots of rye. Very light on the flavor, but it certainly isnít bad.
