4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Coppery Amber, very pretty, not much head. The aroma is waaay different than the taste in that it is very malty, almost barleywineish. Big chewey mouthfeel and really nice dry rich complicated body with yeast, spices and citrus. Nice and hoppy... would be an APA for sure but for the rye which lends an earthyness not usually seen in pale ales. I like this quite a bit.

A definite aroma of rye. Nice malty base that is complemented with a bittering from both the hops and rye.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Amber red glow, looking Appetising. Clear caramel malts , light funk even from the rye. Moderately hopped, going into light fizzy body so not an impressive taste, but rich enough to be nice. It’s decent but a bit odd. (On tap at Easy Tiger Austin)

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
On draft. Dark ruby red color characteristic of the style. Flavor is slightly bready, the rye malts seem a little too thin. Not a lot of hop presence. Kind of watery overall. A so-so ryePA.
