Draft on tap at Tribes Alehouse (Mokena, IL). Quick pop in before dinner. Pours a nice near transparent deep copper hue, nice rich darker glow, orange copper edges and bottom show some ok life. Small frothy offwhite head atop stays as a mellow fimly ring, laces small. Aromas show distinct bready and biscuity malt, some rye, gentle spice and firmer earthy hop bitterness hits the nose. Florals, grass, some weed and a bit of resiny pine. Nice, a firmer bready and rye malt bill still has a nice hop presence, bit of lemon and apricot. Initial is lighter end of medium bodied throwing a nice firm bitter hop profile, florals and grass meet some gentle pine, gentle traces of citrus juice, a bit of grapefruit, lemon, dry florals and subtle soap. Middle shows some bready and rye malt presence, just a faint toastiness. Mellow peach, melon, fruit influence starts in. Backend fairly dry, a bit fuzzy, that earthy hop element trails out. Lingering bready, subtle biscuit, some rye malt elements keep on but still a more dry and fuzzy feel back there, earthy hops are green, a bit floral and weedy, some spiciness. Finish is dry, a bit bitter and spicy, decent hop presence with a bit of that bready and carmelized malt bill. Still, the hops, a bit spicy and a decent bitterness. Fairly drinkable, decent hop presence from a beer I thought would be just a ho hum amber. Firm florals, a bit piney and fuzzy dry into the backend and finish. Solid. A better hopping (appreciated) than I anticipated.

On tap at Oskar Blues Homemade Liquids and Solids. Clear amber with a small head. Kinda smells like lime salt, might just be a play of the grassy herbal hops with the spice of rye. Taste is delightfully malty, wonderfully rye spicy, and pleasantly hopped. Starts bready and rye spicy, blending into a smooth sweet caramel tone, finishing floral, citrusy, grassy, and then sweet again at the finish. Outstanding complexity, balanced with just enough hoppy bitterness and flavor vs a load of sweet caramel and spicy rye.
