Draft at court jester. Pours a hazy dark gold with a thick white head. Smells nice and spicy with some earthy hops. Taste is well balanced between the pale malts and crisp hop bitterness. Just a touch of rye keeps it interesting. Palate is nice and just the way a pale ale should be. Pretty good nice and sessionable.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Several draughts in the VCL. Poured a very attractive orange/amber body with a large frothy sticky off whtie head that leaves gobs of lace all over my Kane snifter. Aroma has a good dose of spiceiness, some lighter citrus, lots of malty grains. Mediu bodied with a more bland initial bite that really picks up on the back end and leaves a lingering bite from the rye. Flavor of slight citrus, spice, toast, rye and earth on the end. The rye really changes this one and it’s no way even comprable to your average pale ale.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours an attractive amber with a moderate head. Aroma is of citrus hops, some light rye and some other light malty bread notes. Taste is much the same, rye, bready malts, citrus hops with a good bite on the finish. Solid drinking beer.
