Pint, on site. Aroma is caramel malts, some rye, grass. Flavor is mainly caramel malts with not a lot more going on the. The rye was lost to me in the flavor. Nice, either way.

On tap. No detailed notes - just now noticing I haven’t entered Cycle beers in after several tastings. Not a fan of the style generally, but this is a very good example, with the rye adding just enough character to be interesting but not overwhelming.
