3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Tap at the brewery itself in Syracuse. Commomshawn, rosskyle, and samadouche present. Pint glass. Well laced effort with quarter finger head on a golden copper ale. Nose has malty and rye characteristics. Maybe a little hoppy pine. Taste has a decent amount of bitterness working with rye and cereal notes. Feels like there are some peppery qualities in there too. Bitterness engulfs the finish. Basically an average rye with a clever name.

Highlight of the night. Pours dark gold with brown highlights and a small white top. Aroma is rye spice, floral hops and bready sweetness from the malt. Taste is a great balance of hop bitterness, malt sweetness and then the rye spice rounds it out.

Draft. Pours golden orange with an off white head. Rye malty base, some floral hoppiness, relatively low sweetness, and light citric notes. Spot on rye profile; big enough to be the focus of the beer without being too big as to be off-putting. Good stuff.
