Bottle - good size thick foamy head, beautiful dark amber color, nice earthy hop aroma and flavor with mildly sweet malt, and mild rye spice - very well balanced - I really like this one!

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pretty tasty all in all; nice peppery notes, a touch weak on the finish, but overall a very drinkable beer. I like it; not the best beer I’ve ever put in my mouth but not one that I’d turn down either.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Nut brown pour. Head is light brown and dissipates to nothing quick. Slight tang from rye and a decent roast, but a bit watery.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pour is a clear brown with a white head. Aroma is a brown malt and not much else. Flavor is definitely a spicy rye but again not much after that. Finish leave more malt on the tongue but everything here is just ok. Nothing to put this in the solid category.

12oz bottle from RobertDale via local for local swap 5.5. Thanks Bob! Pours a clear dirty looking amber color with a foamy two fingers of light tan head. Aroma of rye malt, faint citrus and spice. Not much else. Taste is grassy, with rye maltiness, and some light citrus. Eh
