2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Sampled on draft this beer poured a caramel-brown color with a medium sized beige head that left a bit of lacing. The aroma was bread, pretzel, pepper and faint fruity hops. The flavor was woody, nutty and bready with light notes of pepper, pine, citrus and a bit of an herbal undertone. Long bread, nut, pine and fruity hop finish. Medium body. Ok.

Tap, brewpub. Pours a slightly murky and hazy brown body with a small frothy off-white head that faded to a thin film. The nose is mostly dominated by the rye, but itís pretty subdued overall, fairly yeasty, a little light hoppiness, some earthiness. The flavor is pretty well balanced between the hops and malt, slightly earthy and bready with some light spiciness. Finishes with a mix of yeastiness and light citrusy hops. Medium bodied with a fairly thick texture due to the fairly prominent presence of the yeast. Pretty decent and drinkable beer, but I canít help but think it might be a bit brighter and cleaner if the yeast level were toned down.
