On tap at the brewery. Very nice beer. Dark brown pour, sweet, hints of the rye but just very bready and smooth throughout. I’m not from the area so I don’t know it it’s on a lot, but I could drink a lot of this.

Sample at Twenty Tap. Cloudy brown color with a medium beige head that recedes steadily to a film. Strings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of roasted malt and fruit. Light-bodied with flavors of roast malt, mildly spicy rye and a touch of fruit. The finish is grainy malt and rye. Decent overall.

Draft @ brewery. Banana and bready malt aroma. Chestnut with a moderate beige head. Fruity banana, brown sugar malt, and bready/yeasty flavor. Medium body, soft carbonation. Nice, but I wasn’t getting rye from this one.

Rye beers are definitely the hot variety of beer right now in Indiana. Unfortunately this one isn’t a stand out.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Taster on tap at the brewery. Caramel malt, a bit of rye up front in the palate. Kind of sweet taste. Mostly clear, dark red color. Thin ring of off-white head. No lace sticks. Medium to bigger body, big for the ABV. Smooth, lighter carbonation. Lightly dry finish, lightly sticky. Decent rye ale. Kind of sweet and sticky, would prefer a little more hop to pair with that rye.

Cloudy brown with a small, off-white head.
Rye malt, toffee aroma.
Chewy, malty rye and caramel flavour.
A really nice level of rye-ness....
Like to see this rye-barreled and pumped up a bit.
