3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle @ The Annex. Clear amber colored beer with white, sticky foam. A lot of caramel and bready malts. Sweet toast, too. Some hints of fruity esters and a hint of marshmallow. Maybe a touch of booze on the back end...somehow. There’s a hint of apple and pear as well. Sort of grainy.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle, 22oz. An amber colored beer, lightly unclear, and topped by a big, dense, light beige colored head. Rather lemony aroma with some bready hints, spiced and cellarish. Too much carbonation, it’s medium to full-bodied and semi-dry. Caramel hints, some spiced, bready notes and lemon. Lasting finish. Rather weird this one, but sort of nice anyway. 141228

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Murky hazy dark amberish copper with a thick foamy off cream head. Nice doughy and earthy rye malt nose with a citrusy leafy hop tone. Lovely flavor of a clean rye doughy malt with some balanced bitter leafy hop tones and a kiss of citrus rind. Nuanced and full and tasty. And there’s a touch of black roast malt on the finish.

A great rye. Pours a nice cloudy amber with a white head. Smells very earthy with some boiled malts. Taste starts sweet, with more earthiness and baked bread, and a heavy finish. Had on tap at the brewery.
