Draft at Phoenixville brewpub. Pours clear amber with a small white head. The aroma is light caramel, some floral notes, a touch of breadiness. The taste is lightly spicy from the rye and then sweet and fruity. Good.

On tap at the Phoenixville location. Poured a deeper amber color with an off white head. Bready, rye, some lighter spiciness, and caramel. Very drinkable.

Very average rye-style beer. It poured a light brown color with a subtle head that left some nice lacing around the glass. The nose featured plenty of rye notes, along with some toasted bread and light hops. The features pretty much mimicked the aroma, with the same qualities contained in both. I also noted some dark fruits, light chocolate and a hint of caramel in the body.

Sampler at Phoenixville. Pours light brown with tan head. Lager-like with some brown sugar, cloves. Pretty bland, actually. Low bitterness, some sweetness.

Draft at Lancaster. Dark tan color, but not brown, clear, carbonated, no head. I am not a big fruit beer fan, but this was well done and not overly sweet. Nice spice to balance.

slightly cloudy brown with no head and little apparent carbonation. Aroma is slight cloves. Body is light, and flavor is slightly light compared to the dunkleweizen they had, which featured similar flavors and yeast. Rye spice is very restrained, instead you have a smooth clean session beer that has very light malt sweetness, grain, hop, and yeast flavors (which I’d say are most distinctive with slight clove contribution). It’s all right, but I"m not getting it again, I"d rather the Dunkleweizen.

Goodgrief (1789) - Middletown, Delaware, USA - JUL 24, 2011
On tap, Iron Hill Lancaster. Lighter than expected color, light brown color, some head. Caramel malt base, a bit weird, with a sweet grainy rye finish. Kind of bland.

Look very cloudy body. Very smooth on the palate. This one is ok, some hops but not very impressive.

Nice smooth finish and clean on the palate. Not my favorite in this category but definitely in the middle of the pack.

An interesting hybrid of a beer. Pours from tap dark brown with a thin white head. Big Belgian yeast sorts of flavors on the nose. Has some nice freshness on the tongue with the estery flavor but tempered by the rye so it’s not cloying. Finishes clean.
