3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle: Pours a transparent dark copper amber with a thin ring of spotty-lacing off-white head. Aroma of semi-sweet toasty grainy rye notes with some English hops and light grapefruity character. Starts with average fullness and a light malty sweetness with some toasted caramel and spicy rye notes before a grassy hoppy, lightly citric finish. Pretty smooth and drinkable.

Bottle to pint. Looks good; a semi-transparent brown with off-white lacing. Smells of caramel malt, dark fruit, and dough. Tastes like it smells with a nice rye tingle. A decent winter ale.
