3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
(cask @ The Real Beer Expo - Rochester, NY) Amber in color with a thick and puffy tan head. Aroma is rather bland but has some hops in it as well. Flavor has a decent amount of hops and an interesting spicy note, possibly from the rye. Some malts at the end make for a very clean and smooth finish. A very different beer to be sure.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draught at the Buffalo Brewfest. Medium amber color with an off white head, not very long lasting. Decent base beer with noticible hops and a medium body. The rye adds a nice little slant on it with a spicier kick. Not bad.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
From a growler purchased at Premier Gourmet: Amber body with a dense white head. Aroma of toasted malts and rye bread. Noticeable hop presence, a hint of citrus and moderate bitterness, but the flavor is mainly toasted malts and rye. Clean and very drinkable like most Flying Bison offerings.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
This was a unique beta test, the base being their solid British style pale ale, and rye added instead of what is often added being wheat. Dark yellow with lots of lace. Significant bitterness and toastiness. The best part - unfiltered. Refreshing, decent carbonation though above average.
