2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
12oz bottle served in a Sam Adams perfect pint
A - 1.5 finger tan head. Full and fluffy. The head sinks pretty quick with a clear, dark brown body with reddish highlights. Looks good!
S - Citrus hops, faint metal notes, spicy caramel background.
T - Spicy hops off the top with notes of citrus and red fruit. Sweet malt background with a peppery hop bite. Thereís a weird off flavor that I canít put my finger on. The rye is present with light spice and blend well with the fruit. Finishes with fruity rye bread, almost toasty with a dry finish.
M - Medium body, ample carbonation, crisp peppery finish.
Nice use of rye, not overpowering and could work well as a session beer, if it werent for that off-putting flavor. The mild fruity yeast added a nice English accent. This didnít go down that "smooth".

1.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
355ml bottle. This is a putrid beer, tastes like vinegar and bile, not sour just pukey and garbagey.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
"Pretty disappointing rye ale. Not sure of age - got to the store 8 weeks ago. Definite metallic off putting edge to the aroma and flavor that kinda kills the rest. The centennial hops and rye are hidden way down there. Toasted malt and baseball bat is not so great."

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
An amber colored ale, with not a whole lot going on in the aroma, a little spice but thatís about it. Some hops come through on the palate, floral, and some of the spice from the rye give it a little backbone, but overall, Iím not sure this beer knows what it wants to be.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from Five Points Bottle Shop (Atl Hwy). Rich sweetish caramel, tropical fruit, and some pepper in the nose. Copper color, fine head. Thin caramel initial / touch of sweet fruit: strawberry and cherry / a bit of pepper in the finish. Thin-medium body. Fine, mild flavors. The rye adds a little body, but less pepper than I expected.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle:   Amber, thin to moderate frothy sandy head, spotty lacing.   Soft citrusy nose, even softer rye.   Has a slight powdery sugar background.   Rye is more noticeable on the tongue, but its also slightly
medicinal.   Seems tangy, a little rough despite being fairly moderate in body and mouthfeel.   I get a slight popsicle stick like woodiness after the finish.   Rye lingers a bit too.   Tiz okay, but seems a bit rough and
artificial at times.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
1.5 finger off-white, full head sinks moderately quickly after pouring this deeply copper brew. The aroma is of fruit and hops and a hint of spiciness. Good taste with the fruit and hops getting top billing here, but not overpowering (in fact, maybe a little too muted?) Some peppery spice is blended well into the mix along with a sweet malt background, then finished dry. This beer is amply carbonated and finishes dry. I liked it. 8/9/13
