Cask & Bottle Conditioned; Regular.

A hoppy amber ale, brewed with a complex mash of Marris Otter pale malt, Rye, Caramalt and Wheat.
A shed-load of American hops provide a delightful marmalade / citrus bitterness, well balanced by the sweetness of the malt, whilst delivering a charcteristic peppery Rye flavour.

mcberko (12456) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 28, 2014
On tap at Buxton Tap House, pours a clear blonde with a small white head. Nose brings out light rye notes and grainy notes. Flavour is dominated by the rye notes, followed by dry grainy notes. Fairly restrained in strength, though this is rather monolithic. Decent.

Keg at Euston Tap. Nice, deep rye flavoured IPA. Rye bread sourness, too. Herbs, a bit medical, but very enjoyable.

MrHangover (3766) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - NOV 16, 2013
Bottle, given to me by jmgreenuk, cheers!! Pours a slightly clear golden beer with a medium sized, white head on top. Aroma is yeasty, caramel and has faint hoppy touch in the far background. Flavor is medium bitter with some hoppy touches alongside a big yeasty base, making it bittersweet actually. Oily, creamy texture and medium short finish. Overal quite an average brew, but pretty decent for the style.

danlo (2211) - Darlington, Durham, ENGLAND - NOV 6, 2013
Cask at Cloisters, Edinburgh. Clear amber colour, foam white head leaving lots of lacing and aroma of rye, citrusy hop. Taste is earthy spicey rye with some fruity grapefruit hoppy bitterness. Smooth mouthfeel, medium bodied, soft carbonation, dry bitter finish. Very drinkable.
