This brew poured up a dark amber colored body with a one-finger thick off-white colored head with good retention and lacing. Aromas of warm biscuits, rye, and peppery spices. Flavors of the same. Medium-bodied, good carbonation, very smooth with a nice hit of hops and peppery spices on the finish.

Bottle. Aroma is clearly rye bread. Pours hazy golden. Taste is hops on front backed up by rye w just hint of malt. Finish is lingering spicy rye mixed with hoppy bitterness. All in all a pleasant brew.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Twelve ounce bottle from Real Ale sampler six pack (a good way for me to get acquinated with a brewery) purchased at Kroger in Addison, Texas (suburban Dallas). cloudy orange/amber color, small off white head that slowly receded with little lacing, hoppy aroma with some vinous character, nice bittersweet taste although I didn’t detect any rye flavor. Decent in any event.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 16/20
Copper-orange color with nice white head. Pale ale balanced/mild malt and hop aroma. Not overly challenging but quite drinkable pale ale.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Clear orange, big white head. Leaves loose lacing. Very nice nose, big crackery rye, earth, floral sweetness. Not quite as great as it smells, but it still has a nice rye flavor at the start. Moves to a nutty cereal flavor, finishes floral and moderately bitter.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Pale-ish copper with a medium white head. Aroma was a little faint, but it had some crisp pale malts, a sweet floral hop, and some wheat-like tones. Flavor was a little bland. It was almost creamy in texture and in flavor. Wheat (perhaps rye) malt tones, with a slick and almost chewy pale ale malt body with some very light hops. It wasn’t my idea of a great pale ale, and I got tired of drinking it about halfway through. Pity.
