4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
I went to my home town the other night and there was noone out that I knew. So instead of hanging with the hicks in Cheers I got the idea to hit up my good friend Bob Rowland for a couple of brews, since he was the only person in any of the bars in chilton that I actually new. I was trying various beers and asked Bob which one I should try and he smiled and said, "Rye." I was like, " Wow Bob your a poet, way to go!" Well once I got my beer I drank it and it was good. It was amberish in color and clear. Very tasty. I would recommend to everyone to try this beer and hangout with Bob. Bob wanted me to try some of his other beers, but I was kind of getting tipsy, so I said, "No Bob, It's Ok, I will be back later. I don't want to drive too drunk tonight." I hate Chilton hicks, especially all the old ones who hang out at cheers and drink shitty bud light. Well I guess it's like I always say, "I would rather drink good beer than hang out with stupid hicks who drink bud light at Cheers."

1.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 4/20
Draft at Calumet. Hazy orange-tan, thin white head. Another horrible, way below par offering from Calumet. While the rye sort of works with the disgusting off flavors, this beer is still terrible.

On tap at Rowlands Calumet Brewery. Hazy amber with a thin white topper. Aroma of malt and rye with mild breadiness and a faint hop characteristic. Taste of rye, malt and lemon with a dry finish. One of the better options here.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Copper color with a smaller off white head. Aromas of dark caramel and lightly yeasty dough. Light darker malt flavors with light caramel and a hint of wild honey. Not strong in the rye department as the feel and light spicy rye bite were not in the forefront. Again a very easy drinking brew.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Fourth stop during Wisconsin Trip #2 and one of 11 brews offered at this small town brewpub at any time. This brew pours a coppery brown color with an off-white small head. Nice lacing after the head retraction. Aromas include nutty bready, roasted grain and plenty of sweet pine. A very hoppy charged rye brew per se. At the palate some secondary tastes include bubblegum, and candy sugar. Very smooth and silky finish.
