Poured a nice amber color with a whit frothy head on top. The rye and hops are mixed well where neither seems to overpower the other. Great time at the brewery and lots of fun in the tasting room.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours a coppery brown with a minimum white head. Aroma has a slight spice smell with a hint of hops. Taste was much sweeter then expected but not overpowering and the hops is well balanced to add flavor but not drown out the taste of caramel. A good beer but doesn’t quite fit with its rye title.

Sampled at Knoxville Brewfest. Reddish copper, nice white head. Clean crisp aroma, with some yeasty, malty notes. Flavor is rye, toast, caramel. Pretty tasty.

Grainy red pour, thick body. This rye ale has got it all; rye and malt working in harmony, light hops, and a smooth (surprising) palate.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Slightly cloudy red orange color with thin white lacing. Light aroma with nice hints of caramel and spice. Not a huge amount of rye presence but pulls through as a good red ale. Not a huge candied feel.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Tap at brewery. Pours very red. A thin minimal head dissapears quickly. Taste is on the sweeter side for a rye red. Sweeter than my liking.. my palate begs for a bit more of a bite at the finish. Overall a good rye red for an average everyday drinker but rye-heads will surely be dissapointed here

This is an average beer... overall a b to b minus.... Defniitly nothing special and low on my future list. No head... the rye doesn’t stand out.

Pour is hazy red/orange with minimal off-white head. Aroma is rye and fruit... I get apples and cinnamon. Taste is mildly bittered, fairly low hops, with lots of rye goodness and still a bit of fruit. I wasn’t expecting the fruit. Dry and spicy on the finish. Very tasty, though kind of off-beat....
