3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at the Funky Buddha. Pours hazy copper with soft off-white head. Aromas of fresh dark rye bread, coriander, spices, and earthy hops. Flavors coriander, strong rye, peppery and earthy hops, light citrus, and nice bready malts. Very soft mouthfeel and carbonation. This literally tastes like rye bread with some hops. Very interesting and flavorful beer.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft... Clear dirty-orange ale with a mid-sized, creamy, white head. Good retention. Fruity, black tea nose - instant lemon NESTEA. I happen to like that stuff. Full-bodied with zippy carbonation. . Balanced very nicely, the flavor matches the black tea nose with a hint of lemon peel, low sweetness and some nice rye spiciness. Finishes crisp, mildly bitter and refreshing. High drinkability. Bottle this baby!

On draft at the Buddha. Good nose of hops and earthy tones, mixed with a wee bit of citrus. Flavor wasn’t driven by the hops,though they were there, but carried a nice sweet vanilla cream flavor to it. Very impressive brew.
