8th August 2012
GBBF. Hazy pale gold beer, suddy white head. Light palate - clean and slightly dry. Nice light floral hops with a touch of citrus well buried. Mild fresh hop sting. Mild minerals. Not sure about rye spice - maybe but the hop string is disguising it. Semi dry finish. Light and refreshing.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
On tap at Portsmouth Brewery. Pour is straw yellow with some slight brown tinting around the side. Very light for a rye ale. Little to no head in the glass when it arrived. Aroma is of straw, lemon citrus, and yeast. Flavor is similar but with some slight rye bread in the background. Light bodied and easy drinking, calling it a rye ale is a bit strange because I’d expect more of a body.

Cask at GBBF 2012. It pours hazy straw yellow, with a thin white head. The nose is spice, soapy lemon, wheat and dough. The taste is straw, hay, wheat, soap, citrus pith, light spice, grapefruit, orange and tangerine. Light-medium body and low carbonation. An enjoyable and tasty session ale.

12oz bottle into a belgain stemmed super glass. Pours a lemonade yellow, head grows and then fizzels to a small ring around the glass. Taste is of lemon, grass, faint citrus, honey, spices, and hop particles. Quite a groovy brew for a hot day, as the northeast experiences a heat wave. Fantastical in the sense that its an easy drinker, and the abv is super low. And again, that may be its downfall as well. Good brew here.

Light golden color, almost like a witbier.. Grassy hops, citrus, and spice in the aroma. Flavor is mild but clean and crisp, with more citrus and spice. Nothing overwhelming, but more flavor than you get in most summer beers while still nice and drinkable.

bought a 6 pack for the humid week. color is clear white with faint yellow, tons of bubbling but little head. the spicy rye aroma comes in strong with some light fruit sweetness like pears. taste is a crisp bitter. A success for a low abv summer lager
