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.

My local favorite! Smooth spicy rye with a medium amber hue, an effective combination of hops and malt that makes a very drinkable ale.
