2.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Color is copper gold with a actually really nice long lasting foam. Looks great. I even like the old school label. Unfortunately, thatís where the high marks end. The beer smells pretty bad. There is a hefty amount of rye in the profile along with cereal aromas. However, the grains give way to a funky, beer vomit smell. Very unpleasant. Could this be infected? The beerís taste is much better than the nose but is still nothing special. Dry rye with some tart fruit. Rye bread flavor all the way. Hints of iodine perhaps. Hops profile is fine. I really get the Golding here. Drinkable but that nose is tough to get past.

copper colored, nose of rye but it doesnít smell great. taste is better that the nose, this is what a rye ale tastes like. fairly one dimensional. Rye ales are not my favorite style, this one in particular is average overall. Id rather have a rye ale from terrapin

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Ok. Hazy brown. Slight red tint. Dense, dirty white head with a good size. Prevalent rye aroma with a slight bitterness. Staunch malted rye taste with not much of anything else. Of all the.beers Iíve had that had "rye" in their name this one actually makes it known. If you want a rye beer. Thereís really no other choice.

3 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12oz. single from Roths Vista Market in S.Salem.
Clear copper coloured ale with a nice sized,thick ní frothy off white head.
Strange sickly aroma , like vomit diluted and mixed with soap. Not good.
Thankfully the flavour is better!, balanced, caramel malts,slightly toasted, some spicy rye and bitter dark chocolaty.
OK on the palate i liked the carbonation levels.
Not a bad beer but the aroma was just WRONG

Out of the bottle. Pours a golden amber color with a white creamy head. Smell is of rye malts and a little off is some small way. Taste is bitter and a little sour. Not the best beer I have ever had but not terrible.

Bottle... Poured copper/amber/reddish with white head. Lots of the spice, a bit unbalanced with an astringent character. Dark grains, bitter vegetal tones. Some hop earthy spice too.
