COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This traditional Roggenbier has strong notes of toasted bread and spice with hints of banana and caramel on the nose. On your first sip, spicy clove and banana dominate, but are then soothed with a bready malt sweetness.

Theydon_Bois (6986) - The ’Sham, Surrey, ENGLAND - MAR 26, 2014
Keg at the Rake, 25/03/14. Lightly hazed golden amber with a good sized light beige head that retains well. Nose is sweet, perfumed tones, grain, rye bread, light smoke, toffee. Taste comprises hints of Turkish delight, rye bread, candied sugars, sweet licks. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, sweetish close. Ok stuff if a little sweet in places.

This one poured a lighter brown color with a beige head. Aroma was of caramel, grass, and rye. Flavor was similar, one of the better flying dog rarities I’ve had.

Didn’t do it for me. Too lagery and flat. The rye gives it more character than your standard super session german beer, but still not my style. Not much hops, too bready, and too carbonated.

Beese (1099) - Watford, Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - JAN 7, 2014
Draft at Cambridge Blue, Cambridge on 22 November 2013. Poured a cloudy dark brown colour with a scummy beige head. Aroma of caramel, malt and orange peal. Spicy flavours with nutmeg, Christmas cake and citrus zest. Finish included hints of ginger, pineapple and chewy grain. A lot going on, but I wasn’t entirely sure that it all gelled together...

Rake. Keg. Hazy deep amber beer with a good pale cream coloured head. Palate is soft and smooth with fine prickly carbonation. Sweetish malts, whisper of nuts. Light sweet bubblegum ester. A little coca cola and generic sweet fruits. Smooth finish. Estery aftertaste. Not bad.

Pleasant appearance with some lacing. Farmhouse aroma with strong cherry notes. The taste is well balanced with a slight towards bitterness. Medium to light bodied and clean finish. Nice drinking.
