3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from my dealer, ABC Beers, Den Haag. Poured a cloudy chesnut brown with a frothy off-white head and some broken lace. The aroma is a rather complex yeast, malt and citrus fruit. The flavour is medium bitter with a rather dry, nutty, malty palate with a touch of caramel and a lingering bitterness in the finish. A rather rich, chewy and satisfying beer.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottled, BB 5-3-2014, large sample. Clear copper color, medium creamy brownish head, some debris. Aroma is soft on fruity hops, bit grapefruit, bit citrus, some malt, bit grainy, rye. Medium bitter taste, backed up by caramelly malts. These Rye PAs do a good job in mixing malty and grainy notes of the rye with bitterness of pale ales. Could do with a little more aroma hop, but overall a very nice beer.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
(bottle, 33cl) Hazy, chestnut colour with a tanned thick foamy head. Piney, spicy and subtle fruity hoppy aroma with yeasty notes and a mildly bready cara-malty backbone. Moderately bitter flavour, medium to light bodied with a moderate carbonation. Dark, malty, “wheaty” taste with notes of bread, caramel, as well as present hoppy accents; quite dry and moderately bitter finish with piney and spicy hops and caramel in the aftertaste. Likeable. 15.VII.13

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
I pour from a bottle and get little to no head. The beer is dark amber in color and has a bitter taste. The texture is thin and the liquid quite lively. Not sure if these are the characteristics of rye beer, but it’s definitely not my idea of a premium beer. Apart from the strong aftertaste, It feels like some strong cheap alternatives.

Pours an orange beer with a good white head. Smells really good. Fruity. Grapefruit. Taste is disappointing. Hoped for more. Low on carbo.
