fidelis83 (1823) - Clinton, Iowa, USA - OCT 31, 2013
Hazy, dirty, dark amber pour with a 2 finger, creamy beige head and high effervescence. Aroma is slightly tangy fruit and grain, cereal, toast, floral and spicy hops and a hint of caramel. Flavor is toast, floral honey, odd sour grainy notes, a bit of caramel spicy and raw rye grain a little grass and floral hops. Light to medium body with a dry, slightly astringent feel throughout, light, but sharp and blanketing carbonation. Decent overall, but it doesnít seem to really stand out on anything other than rye, it could use a distinct hop note or malty character. The more I drink the better it gets, but still, it doesnít really interest me.

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

JMerritt (1744) - Macomb, Illinois, USA - MAR 28, 2014
Bottled. Mahogany/Persian red in color with a small white head that falls to a lacy, thin ring. Aroma has notes of light spruce, mild juniper berry, toast, and very mild rye bread. Mild to moderate bitterness is very one-dimensional with flavors of light leather, citrus rind, and light grasses. A touch of alcohol at the tail end. Ok, but I prefer my rye beers to highlight the malted rye quite a bit more.

12 oz bottle. Amber brown in color with an average sized off-white head. Aroma is of rye, malt, caramel, bread dough, nuts, some pear ands apple. Taste is of rye, caramel, light herbal notes, toffee, and funnel cake (sans powdered sugar).

travita (3692) - Frisco, Texas, USA - MAR 12, 2014
Bottle. The look is top dark to see through, light peanut colored head, and reddish brown in color. The smell is light, toast, roast, malt, and rye bread. The taste is malts, roast, some bitterness, spice, rye, and ok.

Chuckaduck (605) - Highland Heights, Kentucky, USA - MAR 12, 2014
Bottle. 3/12/14. Pours syrupy, opaque, syrupy brown with a fluffy, bubbly white head. Aroma is subtle; dry, malty, rye, earthy, spicy. Not a ton going on int he aroma. Taste is dry, bitter, bready (yeasty), mild, rye, hint of smoke; finish is dry, fruit peel, wheat and rye malt, leather. Interesting. Lacing is spotty but consistent. Mouth feel is medium bodied, creamy. Carbonation is medium-low but active. Mild, malty, drinkable. At 5.2% ABV, itís almost sessionable. I expected a lot more out of this beer. Itís unfortunately a bit boring. Breaks my heart saying that about a brewery that I am so fond of.

HuskerTan (342) - Kearney, Nebraska, USA - MAR 12, 2014
Bottle. A- Rye, toast, wheat. A- Brown color, cloudy liquid, off white head. T- Rye, malty, toast, wheat, pepper. P- Medium body, creamy texture, average carbonation, grainy finish. O- My first beer brewed with rye. Canít say I was totally in awe but definitely wasnít let down either. I think this was lacking a little bit, but the rye was present and while I probably wouldnít go out of my way for another, the flavors blend decently. Almost tastes like liquid marble rye bread.

ansermadide (1450) - Kyle, Texas, USA - MAR 10, 2014
Pale golden in color, this rye ale is rightly dark and almost murky in appearance. The nose isnít very appealing, with just a touch of dirty, but plain, rye. The flavor is somewhat bright, but muddy on the palate, with a mostly undecorated bouquet. I expected better for some reason, but itís actually very pleasant for the style.

Amber pour. Smell is toast, soda, malt. The flavor is fruity and medicinal, kind chalky, toasty its w/e.
