3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
On cask at Otto's Pub and Brewery.
Cloudy dark copper pour. A fair amount of lacing after a fast fading tan head.
Fresh grassy hop aroma with some rye spice.
Flavor is slightly citrusy, grassy hops. Spicy rye accented malt backbone.
Very nice on cask. The hop character is fresh--dry hopped?--and the ale is well balanced. Very flavorful, with a fair amount of carbonation for a cask ale.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Light hop aroma, with some malts - a bit sweet. Caramel-dark brown clear with small off-white head (lacing not apparent in sampler glass). Smooth palate, easy carbonation (hand pump) in nice medium body. Starts rather acidic with good bit of malt. Finish is dry, lightly acidic, and a touch of sweetness, though also has a pronounced sourness. Still, nicely balanced.

First rye ale I have had. Very subtle grainy aroma, mixed with hay and spicy hops. Firm body with hints of oak and maybe rice?? Finishes kinda flat. Interesting. Definitely worth a try.
