Beerathon (1184) - Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 10, 2012
UPDATED: JUL 12, 2013 I normally really enjoy a pale rye, but this one had too much sweetness. Don?t get me wrong, it was an okay beer, but I needed more bitterness and the rye flavors to come through. Rerate- they must have changed things up in the recipe because this beer has solid rye spice notes and good hoppiness now.
