COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION

Rust bucket is a balance of rye and barley malt. The rye gives it a little spiciness which combines nicely with the hops which contribute a citrussy note.

Good solid beer, had it after a hoppy Red ale and it was able to compete. Served very cold from the bottle but the head was great. Lovely nose

Very disappointed. If you can’t imagt what alcoholic dishwater would taste like then try this. It is soapy sharp and bitter. Has citrus after tones but leaves you wanting to wash your mouth out even with soap to extract the taste. Dirt
