COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
She’s the athletic All-American, but with a secretly naughty side. Hop-forward but not bitter, well-balanced and completely drinkable, this is a beer you can flirt with all night and tell your friends about. 25 percent rye malt gives her an extra dose of sexy while more than a pound of dry hops per barrel helps her play hard-to-get.

SpringsLicker (3251) - Tennessee, USA - MAR 7, 2015
Pours copper with a dense, creamy off-white head. Aroma of caramel and pine resin. The flavor is an even balance of light malt sweetness and hop bitterness that comes off more as dry than bitter. This needs to be moved into the amber ales.

From can medium in color, lacy head. Balanced and not over the top hoppy. Good rye flavor with balanced malts. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

nearbeer (4124) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - AUG 22, 2014
UPDATED: AUG 24, 2014 Pint on tap. Deep copper with a lasting ring of cream. Nose is toffee and light citrus. Taste is caramel with some spicy resin, apple and citrus that develops into a wooden finish. Near-medium body has medium carbonation that fizzes a bit much, but strikes a nice balance with the long bitter finish. Not much of an ASA, but seems like a decent ESB with an extra dose of American hops.
