3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap and shaker served at Lunar Brewing Co., showing a bright & clear, reddish amber hue, a nice head of off white, bubbles & cream foam, and strands & spots of lacing. The aroma was a mild but expressive enough nose of lemon, grapefruit, grassiness, light resin, smooth malt, light sweetness, and slight rye spiciness. Light to medium bodied with decent carbonation, the flavor was a nice marriage of appropriate malt, moderate hop bitterness, and light esters. Finished with some pleasant dryness. A very sessionable, hoppy, red, Rye Ale.
