Bottle. Nice Christmas in a glass look -- rich and deeply red with a solid head. The aroma is bountiful, rife with robust malt and a hint of winter spice. But this drinks quite evenly, without abashedness, certainly sessionable for th Noel season. (#3774, 12/25/2009)

Bottled. An amber beer with a huge light tan head. The aroma has notes of caramel, malt, rye, and bread. The flavor is sweet with caramel, rye, bread, and malt, leading to a dry bready finish.

Murky red color with frothy white head. Mine had some particulate matter in there as well. I was worried about it at first since no one else has mentioned it but then I took a drink and it was pretty good. Even balanced malt and hops. Nice session beer.

12oz – The Perfect Pour. Dark copper, thick creamy off white head. Soft toasted toffee and earth aromas ride a light citric undercurrent. Nice balance as dried citrus and nutty earth flavors warm to a spicy rye and toasted caramel conclusion. Medium bodied, soft carbonation, lightly bittersweet finish. Surprisingly, this was very flavorful for a mild. Makes for a nice session brew on a cold snowy day…

Clear, reddish brown appearance with a small, off white head and good lacing. Sweet aroma of toffee and caramel. Noticable, but unobtrusive, rye flavor along with toasted malts. Spicy hops add an extra dimension to the taste and bitterness to the aftertaste. Medium bodied, well carbonated mouthfeel. A good session beer.

Deep caramel color, off-white head. Aromas of roasted barley, malt, and prominent weedy hops. Warms without being too heavy. Pretty good, simple, well-balanced.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
A rye not a mild, recent bottle. Refreshin with that rye edge. Moderately pleasant aroma, arising from a medium yellow body topped by good amount of bubbled head. Lace follows through. Very drinkable, refreshing. Warms the body on a cold night.Average mouthfeel, a little edgy but smooth.Drying aftertaste.
