Bottle into a glass. Dark amber pour with a thin cream head. Aroma is faint. Mostly sweet roasted malt and a bit of rye spice. Taste is lightly bitter, a bit of rye spice. Taste is also a bit...thin. Bit of spiciness, some grass, way too much sticky sweet roasted malt....Not at all refreshing.

Bottle from Mile High Wine and Spirits. Pours slightly hazy brown with a ring of a white head. I had pretty high expectations for this one given the fact that I really enjoy rye beers and nearly everything Boulevard brews. The aroma is kind of a let down in the sense that it just seems like a brown ale. Itís toasty, nutty and sweet. I probably couldnít pick the rye out solely based on the nose. The palate is lighter than the color may lead one to believe. Rye is more noticed in the flavor, but rather than being fully spicy or dry, lots of Melanoidin balances things out. Itís a malty beer with no real emphasis on hops. Flavors of chestnuts and rye toast stand out. Itís a decent, medium-light bodied malty beer, but itís not the kind of beer I prefer.

Bottle from sampler pack pours a hazy brown with a fluffy off-white head with good retention Aroma is not strong, but is mostly wheat Tastes slightly sweet and caramelly with a sour finish. Hardly any rye to my taste.Body is medium with only slight carbonation. Easily drinkable, but nothing very memorable, good or bad.

Hardly any aroma, wheat. Taste is wheat, corn meal, hint of rye. Aftertaste is not great, sour, rye.

COMRADEJOSH (287) - Ft Hood, Texas, USA - JUN 23, 2014
Aroma is tangy and the taste is a little caramel, toasted malt and tangy as well. Color is deep copper with a thin white head that retains well. Just enough buffering hops to balance. I think it is a pretty decent beer. Not sure how to compare as I havenít had a lot of rye beers.

Aroma of spicy rye and noble hops. Brown with tan edges. Off white head with fluffy retention. Taste of nice crisp hops intertwined with a light beer that exhibits slight malt character spicyness.

Amber colored withe a thick white head. Pours clear with nice aroma. Rye flavor throughout. Very little noticeable hops flavor. Finish lasts with a bite on the tip of the tongue.

Bottle. Caramel malt aroma followed by some rye earthiness. Pours copper colored with a thin, off-white head, but what's there retains well and pretty good lacing. Starts out with the caramel malt flavor with a crisp, refreshing mouthfeel. Finishes slightly dry with the tang of the rye malt coming through strongly. Good, but doesn't really stand out in any way, good or bad.

Nsanders (486) - St Paul, Minnesota, USA - MAY 24, 2014
Bottle. Orange brown with a thin tan head. Wheat, light rye notes, very bready and light smokiness. Bready taste, mildly sweet. Body is lighter and watery.

Nephilium (1312) - Ohio, USA - MAY 22, 2014
Aroma has hints of caramel, with a touch of rye spiciness. Pours a clear reddish-amber, with a thin light tan head. This is a malt forward beer, with a lot of caramel notes coming through, the rye is there with a touch of a bite in the finish. Not a lot of hop notes present. Not bad, but I probably wonít go for this one first.
