COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Light golden in color, crisp, smooth and dry with slight bitterness to balance the sweetness of the malt. This beer will be well received by American Lager fans even as an ale. The rye adds a bit of spicyness and some bakery qualities which enhance the complexity of this beer. This beer will mix well with most meals, a good “appetizer” beer with “light” meals.

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.

wlajwl (3876) - Quad Cities, Iowa, USA - FEB 27, 2013
Aroma is grainy malts, fruit and a hint of pears. The flavor is mildly spicy rye malts, pears, underlying sweetness and a slightly tart/tangy finish.

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.

16 oz can from a sampler pack. Pours with a large, thick, white head that leaves a thin layer on the top of the beer. The beer itself is a clear, medium gold color with a hint of orange to it. Aroma is very muted, almost nonexistent. Flavor is very dry, fairly bitter, and pretty generic. Lightly malty, not especially sweet but grainy and cereally, and a bit of a taste of corn even if there’s probably not corn in the mash. Not much rye flavor apparent, maybe a hint in the finish. Palate is pretty nice, very fine and somewhat dense carbonation. Overall pretty mediocre.
