3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours clear pale amber with two fingers of loose light tan head, good retention and spotty lacing. (3/5) Nose is spicy rye, caramel malt, pine resin, citrus, pumpernickel. (7/10) Taste is moderate sweet, moderate bitter, mild spice. (7/10) Medium body tending to watery, moderate carbonation, building bitter finish. (3/5)
That’s some pretty impressive chops for a session-ABV ale. Lots of aroma and flavour from the spicy rye makes this feel like a much bigger beer than its puny 4.4% ABV. It falls apart a little on the watery body, but all things considered, really quite pleasant. (14/20)

650ml bottle pours a pale golden amber color with a finger of white head that leaves some spotted lacing on the glass. Aroma is citrus with some caramel and light spicy notes. Taste is a light citrus and spicy bitterness with a caramel malty sweetness. Light bodied with nice carbonation that feels good on the palate. Overall, a nice easy to drink pale ale that is tasty and recommended.

For a session, this is quite good. Getting the rye notes. A little watery compared to other sessions, tho.

Light and session able. Not a ton of depth but light malt and hops with some spicy rye. Would be a quality spring or summer seasonal.
