A- Golden color, hazy liquid, white head.
T- Rye, spice, wheat, corn, pepper, slightly sweet.
P- Light body, average texture, average carbonation, spicy finish.
O- This rye in here is certainly noticeable and it’s welcoming. Makes it something other than an average blond. I like my blondes with a little spiciness.

16 ounce can poured a golden yellow color with aromas of vinegar, sour mash and some light rye. Flavors are sour rye, not at all what I was expecting, sourness, sourness, and more vinegar, disappointing.

Fairly clear darkish gold.MIld head but leaves some froth.
Mildly hoppy nose with some grainy mild sweetness.LIght spiceyness from the rye.A bit of sulfer also.Slight woody dry earthyness.
Taste is light medium body with light sweetness,some dryness and light spicyness from rye but more noticable in finish makes it seem hoppier than it is with the spicey rye dry finish.Mild herbal hop.Kind of has some rubberyness in aroma/flavor.Some minerallyness.MIld citrus in finish with some mild residual sweetness. Ok for a warmweather beer and for a golden ale but has some offness.

A pillowly yellow tinted head tops a slightly hazy rich bronze colored body. Woody notes come through in the initial whiff. There is also some herbal character along with a hint of straw. This tastes metallic with lots of spicy grapefruit. There is also a little bit of soap. I am not a fan of this herbal and mineral finishing brew.
