COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Think: fresh baked rye bread in a bottle with a hint of lemon and spice from the hops and yeast.

Nuffield (3657) - Roseville, Minnesota, USA - APR 27, 2012
Amber and clear. Bready, yeasty aroma with some light hopping, floral and slightly fruit. Flavor thins out a bit but is biscuity with a few light spice notes. Easy drinking but not rich. Still, a good value at $3.99.

JCB (3999) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - MAY 6, 2012
Bomber from Sam’s, Durham. Crazy how many new beers Epic keeps pumping out. There always seems to be a new one on the shelf. Handsome amber pour, not too much going on appearance-wise though it looks earthy and inviting enough. Nose was moderately floral and had just the faintest hint of spice to it, with leafy hops coming on as the beer opens up. Mouthfeel was medium, modestly spicy palate. The flavors overall were extremely understated, giving the impression that this is basically a moderately tweaked APA more than anything else. Certainly not too much rye that I can taste. Okay.

Cloudy dark amber, long 1/2" head, full lacing. Slightly sour malt with bittering entering mid-way through the palate. A sour bittering lingers well into the finish. Very still, no carbonation edge at all. Unusual brew, but very drinkable.

This isn’t that great. The flavor is a bit plain for a rye beer and it looks like dirty water. Ho-hum.

Bookseeb (107) - Wenatchee, Washington, USA - MAR 13, 2013
Appearance has a hazy dark amber brown color supporting a fair dissipating head leaving spotty lace. Smell of mainly the rye, citrus with light malt, citrus and hop in the back. Taste is of bitter rye, sweet malt with a balance of hops. mouthfeel is medium with good carbonation. Overall a fair rye.

angel77 (768) - oviedo, SPAIN - APR 3, 2014
Botella de 65 cl en el lúpulo en octubre de 2013. Release 13. cuerpo ligero con 5.6 vol que se beben muy fácil. Aromas florales y ligeramente cítricos con un final también ligeramente amargo. Sabores también herbáceos cítricos con amargo final contenido. Bastante ligera en general, para tomar sin problema en un día de calor.

ADesenberg (551) - Ohio, USA - APR 30, 2012
Bottle: pours a hazy copper with an off white, fluffy head. Aromas of bread and some fruit. It tastes like a nice combination of delicious bread with just enough citrusy hops to make it so it doesn’t overpower itself. Wonderful.
