2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
On tap at Goose Clybourn. Poured medium reddish-brown with a creamy cap of beige head. The aroma was light and sweeter with caramel on the front and more vegetal-"inspired" notes toward the back.. spicage was mild and I didn’t pick up any rye in the nose.. grassy and hay accents. The flavor found sweet caramel and lighter fruity notes surrounded by a touch of rye, black pepper, and brighter wheaty notes.. organic feel on the finish.. didn’t like it so much. Lighter-bodied-plus with too much carbonation and too little emphasis on the rye.
