3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tap pour. Cloudy reddish brown in glass. Caramel and rye on nose, with a not too submit helping out floral hops. Fresh. Taste trends towards the bready rye and caramel notes, with the good from the nose dropping to the background. Some spice and nuttiness not present on nose also factor. Good, but the flavors could be better matched.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft. Pours clear amber/orange with minimal white head around edges. Aroma is floral, pine, lemon pledge, grass. Taste incorporates those elements and adds that signature rye spiciness. Not as robust or pronounced and Iím not getting any notable sweetness as I usually associate with a "red rye". Still, not bad at all.
