4.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Shockingly good. A deep rusted red, perfectly clear ale with a strong aroma of toffee and coffee. The flavor is deep but not complex, large amounts of hops (cascade?) promise bitterness that is absent but not missed, in this case. This is followed by a dirty earthiness. Terrific and filthy. I wish I had access to more!

Pours a clear red with a light tan head. Smells of roasty bread. Taste is a hint of sunflower seed, almost nutty - i guess from the rye - slightly sweet, without a strong hop presence.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
I sampled a bottle of this while hanging out at the Happy Rooster in Center City this past weekend. While the company and atmosphere were awesome, this beer unfortuantely was not. There just wasnít anything special about this Philly brew. It poured a dark red color with an average-sized white head. The head didnít leave much lacing around the glass, either. The nose was very malty, with some notes of rye bread, yeast and light hops. The flavors were mostly malty as well, with a pronounced rye theme. Letís just put it this way....I didnít order another bottle.

Pours reddish brown with a thin white head. Aroma is caramel, toast, rye and a little medicinal. Taste is sweet with herbal tartness. Medium mouth feel with a Slick texture. A little to medicinal for my liking.

Lemon and grain scent. What a type like this should smell like. Nice. Taste is oats, wheat, other grains. Thin body and mild carbonation.

12oz bottle. Poured a brownish red color with a faint off white head. Malty sweetness with nice hops on the nose. Sweet malt tones of caramel and dried fruit with some earthy tones. The hops show up somewhat through in the middle with the spice flavor pushing through. Medium body with some creaminess, and carbonation that was fairly low.

Interesting take on a farmohouse beer being a little darker and having more body than usual, although it wasnt very impressive.
