Really enjoyed this strong ale from Finch- had a pour of this at Leopold, a gastropub in Chicago’s West Town. Lovely aroma with a strong rye smell, a lovely balance of hops on the finish. A little sour, a bit bitter, but all perfectly balanced and tasty.

Draft. A hazy red beer with a bubbly tan head. The aroma has notes of fresh hops, caramel, malt, spices, and citrus fruits. The flavor is sweet with notes of malt, alcohol, citrus fruits hops, and spices, leading to a dry finish.
