2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
12oz Bridgeport bottle. Deep amber color, lacey white foam. Aroma of mixed berries & loads of fresh pine tips. Tastes kinda like soap, at first. Then some toasted malt flavor, hint of a rye tingle. Overall, very odd flavors. Tastes and finishes like a hearty Amber Ale. (3672)

This beer is amber in color, slightly sweeter than I would’ve liked with a lighter than average body. The rye comes through in a slight pepperyness that is its one real saving grace. Drank this during on of the many disappointing games of March Madness, 2013 at Brandon’s house.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
From bottle. Pours a dark amber with two fingers of dimpled white head. Lots and lots of tiny bubbles. Nose is very clean with hints of pine. Augering through the foam, I find a soapy, fruity beer that is reminiscent of children’s cough syrup. I keep digging, trying to locate the rye, but to no avail. I like Bridgeport and I don’t mind rye, but I’m not sure what happened here.

Pour out of 12 oz bottle, clear orange amber pour with white head that fades quick, aroma brought notes of some slight rye, sour grain, hints of toffee, caramel, biscuit, slight spice. Taste is a mix of slight rye, lemon, caramel, toffee, hints of grain, bread, slight spice, caramel notes finishing dry. Just ok.

12 ounce bottle thanks to Hiromi. Pours a clear copper color with a medium white head. A fruity and grainy nose. The flavor is big rye, meaty at times, fresh piny hops, some lingering sweetness. A bit odd altogether but nice overall.

12 oz. bottle- Pours clear dark orange with a one finger head that reduces. Aroma is subdued, somewhat bready and spicy from the rye, kind of sweet and fruity. Taste is sweet and very mellow and smooth, sweet tarts, mild dry finish. I liked it, kind of basic, but nothing offensive.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
12 oz bottle. Amber and clear with a nice off-white head that laces the glass. The aroma is skunky and hoppy with light spices and malts. Medium body with a slick feel and soft carbonation. Pretty tasty balance of flavor between bitter hops, a blend of sweet malts and subtle rye spiciness.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Comes out of the growler a pretty clear dark amber, almost a caramel color, with a very thick and rather persistent light wheat head. Strong aroma has a decided rye note with hints of pomme fruit and alcohol. Robust, distinctive flavor has rye and yeast notes plus hoppy, fruity and earthy hints. Texture is smooth, average thickness and not much fizz. Certainly worth giving a try, especially if you like rye beers.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from Total Wine in Sacramento, CA. Pours clear deep copper with a foamy beige head. Deep inhale reveals spicy chocolate. Med body. Foamy carb. Flavor comes first as chocolate, then with rye spice, then something like the leftover flavor of sucking baking chocolate. Finishes pretty bitter - in a sort of chocolate way. We’re not talking Hersheys here, just that bitterness associated with chocolate. Very good ale. But it would be much nicer were it imperialized. Hint. Hint.
