On tap at the 2014 Maryland Microbrewery Festival. Pours a nice reddish brown with a small foamy white head. Smells of citrus, rye, and some pine. Taste is much the same, the brew stays nice and dry throughout while providing focus on the rye. Medium bodied with moderate carbonation and has a slight oily mouth feel. Nice Rye-p-a.
