3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle 65 cl. Pours a thick syrupy muddy opaque amber with a small and creamy off-white head. Pleasant fruity aroma. Surprisingly thick, sweet and grainy, again very fruity with a little late hops. The rye really adds here - in a pleasant way. 100912

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Very cloudy brown color, nice nose of rye with a moderate amount of acidity. The mouth has low hops, with a touch of rye spiciness and decent acidity. Very quaffable. Lingering rye notes in the end. Enjoyable.

3.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Aromas of weeds and grass with a little bit of smoke and chocolate in the background. Fairly clear deep copper orange with an off-white head. Light honey and caramel sweetness followed by dry grassy notes, a slight sourness and a mellow toastiness. Bitterness seems mostly like a roasted husk type bitterness that sticks close to the tongue. Kind of like a brown ale (compares favorably with Sierra Nevada Tumbler) with a spicy dryness.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from the brewery. Pours a nice dark bronze with an average head. The aroma is mellow yet enticing. This drinks very nicely with a pleasantly rolling pale ale character, bringing an added extra gristy spice that I like to get from a good rye. Nice. (#4689, 7/9/2012)
