3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Spicy floral hop aroma that is very pronounced. Copper color with a light head. Flavor is malty caramel with a nice floral hop presence and a bit if sweetness. It’s nice. Full bodied with a dryish finish.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Tap at brewery. Pours a murky, hazy brown. Aroma is pale and toasted malts, faint rye, and light floral notes. Flavor is dry and moderately hopped with some light toast and spice with a grassy finish. Medium body.
Guessing this was an off batch since the previous reviewers seemed to have a much clearer, better beer.

Kind of a dull beer. Decent balance. A bit on the malty side. Not a bad beer, but not great.

Golden brown pour with large white head. Good malty aroma which gives a hint of classic British pale ales. Flavor was a bit on the sweet side but decently balanced with hops.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Sampled at Hickory Hops 2014. Reddish brown, nice white head. Smells like caramel and just faint whiff of butter. No butter in the flavor, thankfully, just a nicely sweet caramel flavor and a crisp, dry pine finish.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Draught. Pours a moderately clear amber color with very little head on it. Nose is pretty light, with only some faint whiffs of rye in there. Taste definitely has some rye and grains in there, and is actually slightly sour. Not all that great for me.

At topsail. For a rye beer this is top notch. Sometimes a rye has too much bite for me. This one is weak on rye which makes it better. Bought this to go with a cigar but think its too weak for the cigar.
