22oz bomber pours a light amber color with a medium white head that leaves good lacing. smells of rye, citrus and honey. Tastes of all the same things in the smell with a slight bitterness and honey sweetness in the back end. Mouthfeel is medium bodied and chewy with great carbonation and light finish. This is one of the best summer seasonal beers I had this year. One of my favorites from Oakshire. The rye is very noticable and works well. Looking forward to next summer already.

Draft. Pouts orange amber with a thin white head. Rye malts, light sweetness, hints of fruit and honey, and light flowery hops in the finish. Not bad.

Lofty, solid beige head. Honey golden color. Noble, tangy aroma. Taste is on the hoppy side, much like common Northwest pale ales, with nuances of oakiness and subtle rough grains. Mouthfeel is bright and lively at first, settling down to thinner, mostly hoppy afterbite.

Very fine, sweet rye pale ale. Strong bread flavor plus a dash of brine. Good stuff, and it was interesting to come across it in a Vermont bottle shop.

Thanks to bu11zeye for sharing this bottle. Yellow with a white head. The aroma is full of rye and caraway seeds with some wheat and biscuit malt. The flavor is similar with some biscuit malt, rye, grass and a low amount of bitterness. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

22 oz. bottle- Pours honey golden with a good one finger head that reduces fairly quickly. Aroma is malt, you can definitely smell the rye malt, very bready and spicy. The taste is pretty much as it’s described, a nice pale ale with a rye twist, you do really detect the rye in the taste too, the honey, although I wish it were more prominent, comes through in the finish, I must admit If I hadn’t read honey on the label I doubt I would have detected it. Body is medium light and carbonation is medium high. Good beer, very sessionable, simple, and enjoyable.
