Un bon bouquet d’houblons fruités accompagne le seigle. La présence en bouche est un peu ralenti par un passage à vide trop liquide. L’amertume est bien calibré avec la douce présence caramel. Buvabilité moyenne.

Bottle shared by Tom. Pours a clear reddish amber with a brown head that dissipates quickly to the edges. Aroma has a good amount of light pine hops and grapefruit with a hint of backing rye. Flavor has a real nice hop profile with grapefruit and pine with a backing grassy and light grain notes.

I loved this pale ale. Really unique hop bill accented greatly by the rye. I ordered the farmhouse rye at the anniversary party and was given this by mistake and well im glad it happened. Hops are flavorful but not too intense with resiny citrus and grassy notes. The spicyness of the rye are the star. Great!

Spicy rye smell. Rye everywhere in the taste. Not really too much hops, just too much rye

Review from notes 2010.
A: Pale golden-amber body. Two to three finger white head. Tight bubbles. Nice and creamy. Good retention and rather nice lacing left on the glass.
S: Bright grapefruit, orange, and pine. Aggressively hopped for a "rye pale ale." Slightly grainy/rye undercurrent.
T: The hops from the nose are mellowed out... which is nice. Loses a little complexity though. Getting more grapefruit and orange and less pine and floral notes. Rye comes to life here as well.
M: Smooth. Medium bodied. Good carbonation. Clean, refreshing finish which has a lingering bitterness.
O: Really enjoyable. This is now the second lawson’s I’ve had in as many days. I like what Sean is doing. Keep it up.

Tasted on 6/26/11 from a 22oz bomber bottle, "Rare Batch #213" Bottle #17, thanks to Ryan. Pours murky burnt orange with an average beige head that slowly recedes to spotty lace, leaving a light trace amount of residue along the inside of the glass. The nose is malty with brown sugar and caramel along with very dank, herbal, and citrus peel bitter hop aromas. The flavor is fairly light up front moving to the brown sugar malt along with herbal, dank, and citrus peel hops and some nice spicy rye notes. The body is fairly light with average carbonation and a long spicy rye and herbal bitter hops finish.

Thanks to a good sir for the chance to try this brew. Served in a tulip.
Pours a nice, clear copper color with a thin white head and a good dosing of spotty lacing on the way down. The nose brings forward some light bready malt along with some spicy rye. Following that, there’s a pretty good amount of hops, mostly citrus and pine. Orange and grapefruit standout, and there are some slight floral hops there as well. The flavor bumps this up and offers a nice experience, combining the rye and hops quite well. Medium body and moderate to heavy bitterness. Solid brew.
Serving type: bottle

hazy gold pour with a small white head. Aroma is up front spicy rye and quite a bit of earthy and pine hops. Flavor is up front spice in the form of rye and earthy bitterness. A bit of fruit shines through from the hops as well. Dry, refreshing finish. Nice!
