Nephilium (1326) - 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 won’t go for this one first.

Bottle. Pours a clear, dark copper color with a tan head. Light malty aroma with a hint of brown sugar. Smooth taste. Smokey malt. Dry finish. OK brew.

ttoadee (616) - Austin, Texas, USA - MAY 9, 2014
Light brown pour, no head. Nose is neutral grain. Bittersweet. Middle is sweet grain and weird carbonation taste. Finish is slightly sweet. Pedestrian, but not bad.

DuffMan (6554) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - MAY 2, 2014
Bottle, shared with Parksy. For some reason I made no notes on appearance, so I’ll score it average. The nose is sweet grains, lightly caramelized. The palate is much the same, maybe a touch of cooked apple. Missing the rye character for the caramel.

From the 12 fl. oz. bottle labeled 3353-1033-F-BEST BY 05/18/14. Reddish amber pour with maybe a chill haze and little to no head. he aroma is indistinct but I pick up some rye grain and a clean hop note. Muted all around. Light to medium body. The taste begins with that rye grain character but then there is this explosion of caramel and bitterness. That made it at least a little interesting but otherwise it was rather ho-hum.

wilnatp (561) - Minnesota, USA - APR 24, 2014
Bottle. Aroma of malt, rye, ginger, and other subtle spices. Taste is pleasant with a slight bitterness and roast coming through. I would like bolder rye notes.

bwa5879 (616) - Portage, Michigan, USA - APR 7, 2014
Deep chestnut or mahogany pour with an inch of beige head. Lighter aroma of toasted malts, dough, sasparilla, a little Carmel. German malts in the taste with some herbalness too. Very subtle. Average beer, flat root beer may be correct. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Not that great of a beer. Keep it in the tasting room. Nice appearance with hazy copper but that's about it. Reminded me of flat root beer ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
