Âmbar escuro de média turbidez, espuma densa de boa formação e média persistência. Aroma de cereais evidente, malte e lúpulo balanceado, caramelo, toffe. No paladar o amargor médio surpreende, leve dulçor. Corpo e carbonatação médios. Final de média persistência evidencia o malte e centeio, um pouco de nozes.

Pours a mahogany color with a light, tan head. Aroma is pine hops with rye and caramel malts. Flavor was not as good. Caramel malts are too overpowering with a hint of rye and pine.

Pours an amber color with a white head. Aroma was of caramel malts, grassy hops, a little fruity. Flavor similar, a nice clean rye beer not overloaded with hops.

On tap at Short North Pint House on 5/20/16. Was attempting to attend the Rhinegeist tap takeover for Columbus Craft Beer Week, but the time was listed wrong and we were several hours early. At least they had this one on tap. Clear copper pour with a thick beige head. Aroma of malt, spicy rye and earthy hop. Spicy rye malt flavor with slight caramel before a grassy and earthy hop finish.

12oz can pours a murky orange with some frothy, white head. Nose is OK, grist, some mild toffee sweetness, a little pepper, some grass. Flavor is quite muddled, grist is more on the stale side, light pepper, some grass, straw. Spritzy finish. OK.

Pours a dark honey color with a thick fluffy off white head. Aromas of pine and sweet malt. Piney, resiny flavors. Earthy hops, slightly vinous flavors, biscuit, sweet malt. Dry, earthy finish. Slightly oily mouthfeel. Not bad, but not outstanding.

Amber color out of the can with a thick, sticky off white head. Nose with some some rye spice and some earthy hops. Caramel sweetness with a strong rye presence and a firm, earthy dry hop finish. I do like rye in beer.
