Copper with lots of tan head. Bread and cereal malt with a little citrus aroma. Taste is fairly hoppy with a little metallic taste, bread and caramel and a little bit of grain. Not too bad.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle. As with the other Real Ale beers I tried, this one is on the lighter end of the spectrum for its style. The rye was clearly apparent, giving it a peppery, somewhat abrasive finish after a thin, sweet body. The hopping is minimal and leans on the spicy side.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Brown color ale with a big foamy head with good retention but no lacing. Aroma of rye malt with some light bitter hops also noticeable. Taste is a mix between some bitter hops with loads of rye malt which provide some complexity.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: FEB 23, 2012 Location: Bottle at a bar in Austin, 2/20/12
Aroma: The nose is fairly yeast, some spice and bread notes are present too
Appearance: Pours a mostly clear orange-amber color, a small white head, no lace
Flavor: The taste is yeast, spice, and pale malts, lightly sweet and lightly bitter
Palate: The body is light-medium, it is fairly smooth, clean feel, and a soft carbonation
I thought this was an alright rye pale ale, but there wasn’t much going on to make it interesting.

12oz bottle: Appearance is medium brown with minimal off white head. Aroma is of fresh malt and some floral hops. Taste is Decently hoppy for a pale ale, but surprisingly crisp. A very easy drinker with some complexity as well.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Poured a slightly hazy amber with a small off white head with decent lacing. Aroma was floral hops and some spicy rye. Taste was more rye than the aroma. Also some nuttiness and hop bitterness. Very easy to drink. Good beer.
