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.

500ml bottle from McCambridge’s Of Galway (€3.95):
Great stuff & definitely up there with the best from the brewery that I’ve tried so far. The beer was very fresh & lively with a lot of hop bitterness & tropical fruits coming through, something that is usually missing from a lot of Irish brewed IPA’s sadly. There was a good balance between the tropical flavours, hops & the caramel sweetness that followed & as a result the beer was a very easy one to drink. The taste was flavoursome & varied with plenty going on, the only slight negative being the amount of sediment that was showing in the glass but it’s definitely a beer I’ll be on the look out for again.

Scrumpy369 (448) - Budapest, HUNGARY - JUL 29, 2016
On tap at Monroes, Galway. Hazy yellow-light orange colour, small white long lasting head. Nose is tropical fruity. Mango, passion fruity yummy. Taste is medium bitternes. Fruity, hoppy taste. Very nice and refreshing but not really rye-y.

beerbomb65 (46) - Dunmore, County Galway, IRELAND - MAR 28, 2016
from bottle pours a hazy amber colour with a small head and a little lacing. A citrussy and hoppy nose, pine resin and fruity. Taste of orange marmalade and some toasted grain and hoppy bitterness, slight spicy note, good carbonation but not much rye only faint. Decent enough beer though, enjoyable.

mmcd123 (7) - NORTHERN IRELAND - JAN 23, 2016 does not count
Bottle bought from Donegal. Didn’t know what to expect from this, but what a beer! Drank this last night so cant quite remember the exact tastes/smells etc. But what a beer. Never had a rye ale before. Nice fluffy head, clear amber colour. Taste wise its delightful. One of the best beers Ive tried in a while. Keep an eye on Kinnegar!

TheKernOwl (182) - West Sussex, ENGLAND - JAN 3, 2016
Plenty of pine-y, orange Cascade hops on the nose, albeit slightly earthy at the same time. Body and taste more subtle/thinner.

mR_fr0g (8945) - Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - DEC 27, 2015
Bottle at home thanks to Mum and Dad. Hazed orange / amber coloured pour with a small off white head. Aroma is orange marmalade, jammy fruits, hoppy, rye grains, light resin. Flavour is composed of toasted grains, some rye, rusty penny, orange jam, mineral. Assertive slightly rough hop bitterness. Palate is spritzy, chalky, high carbonation . decent hoppy red ale.

Padchenko (277) - Dublin, IRELAND - NOV 18, 2015
Pours dark orange amber and retains a small white head. Medium to high carbonation. Smells hoppy and is reasonably bitter in the mouth but not really bitter at all in the finish. Citrus fruity.

Mortlach (1890) - Rome, ITALY - OCT 13, 2015
Bottle shared by John Nolan @Johnny’s Off License (thank you Johnny!). Pours amber with a decent off-white head. Aroma is delicate malty, cereals, light caramel, citrus, resin. Flavour is perfectly balanced, medium malty and sweet with a nice bitter end. Medium body, medium to light carbonation. So balanced, with a classic anglosaxon touch.

Bottle at Johnny Off L. beer shop in Rome-Italy, courtesy of John Nolan. Many thanks. Pours a clear amber color, tick off white foamy head. Nose: resin, American hops, caramel highlights. Mouth: oily, some cara orientation, clean rye feel, bitter finish. Nice. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
