Draft. Cloudy amber color, small tan head. Beautiful aroma of rye seeds and baking rye bread with light spice. Taste doesn’t quite live up to the expectations after that aroma, plain caramel malt.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bomber. Poured deeper orangey-brown with a colossal, gushy off-white head. The aroma picked up earthy and medicinal notes over bready malt.. not much rye evident, and it seemed a bit infected. The flavor found bread and fruity malt at the core, with rye, white pepper, fruit skins, and herbal notes around.. finished a tad sour and a bit funky. Medium-bodied with way too much sharp carbonation on the palate.. I don’t think this was as intended.
