COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
One of the few small grains still grown in southwestern Minnesota, malted rye is the base for this one of a kind ale brewed and aged in tiny Lucan, Minnesota. Following a long, slow fermentation, the beer is stored away in used rye whiskey barrels brought north from our friends at Templeton, located in the equally tiny town of Templeton, Iowa.

Murky muddy cloudy brown w/ a hint of red pour and a huge frothy small bubbled thick tan head w/ thick lacing. Aroma is delicious extremely well blended mix of sweet roasted malts some other light grains a good amount of sweetness hints of tobacco toffee mixed hops light citrus (very light) touches of grass and clearly whiskey and a hint of vanilla. Big rich full well coated thick palate. Flavor is delicious. Sweet and syruppy but well balanced with a lightly dry hoppy finish more of a floral taste with vanilla, the rye whiskey comes through clean and clear as a nice subtle addition with a slightly warm alcohol note in the swallow. This stuff is just flat out DELICIOUS! One of the best things I’ve tasted in quite a while.

Hazy red pour from a 2011 bottle. Malty sweet nose, again in the taste - subtle whiskey with some nice heat and sweetness.

hopscotch (9489) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - MAY 22, 2014
Bottle... This beer rocks!… Pours hazy with a burnt-caramel hue and a mid-sized, creamy, off-white head. Fantastic retention. The nose furnishes a generous measure of gooey caramel mingled with earthy, oak and rye whiskey notes. Full-bodied with a velvety mouthfeel and pillow-soft carbonation. The flavor is a delicious blend of rich, buttery caramel and rye whiskey. The finish is boozy and quite warm, but smooth; very smooth. Muchos kudos to Bvery for shipping this world class beer from the great white north!

From a 75 cl bottle shared at home. Pours a murky brown with an ecru head. Flavors of caramel, oak, vanilla and butterscotch. Boozy finish. Really tasty.

Brown pour, tan head. Nice spicy rye whiskey notes, brown sugar, toffee, very light on the hop bitterness. Sweet and rich. Good stuff.

Wow, I cant believe this beer is still on the shelves. 3 years old and awesome. Toasted coconut, vanilla, rye,spice, earthy. Alcohol is hidden well. Excellent brew after three years!

Red waxed 75cl bottle, courtesy of a trade with . . . (sadly, don’t remember). It pours with a dark mahogany colored body that supports a nice looking tan head of foam. The aroma offers up malts, molasses, a malt sweetened rye twang, some spicy wood that has a pine hop feel to it and a faint sweet vanilla note. The taste is smooth and pretty rich. It delivers thick malt sweetened notes, sweetened rye and then a mild to slightly harsh booziness. Around the edges are thin rings of spicy oak and vanilla. Pretty darn nice.

2011 bomber. Nice brown pour. Nose of malt, booze, and vanilla. Taste follows the nose with some sharp rye spiciness. A little unpleasant bitterness on the back end. Not bad. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
