3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Amber color with a beige head. The aroma contains some citurs, spices, and some vinegar notes? The flavor is not a hop bomb but more of a sour bomb. I get some citrus, caramel, but also some vinegar and sour notes. Is this on purpose? Well it works ok. Overall its pretty good.

12oz bottle via trade with bmoosey, thanks Bruce. Poured a chunky honey orange/tea colored body with a foamy white head. Aroma is lightly sweet, honey topped bread, old toast, tea leaves, old caramel. Fuller bodied with average carbonation and a dry finish. Flavor is very similar to the aroma, some light sweet honey and caramel, amber malts, dry toast, older orange slices. Meh nothing special here.

Pours a clear amber color with huge white head, some floaties. Slight barnyard funk aroma, light caramel malt. A little bit of the barnyard character in the flavor as well. Decent hop character, slightly citrusy and piney. Just not sure the barnyards brett character is suppose to be there.

Meh. Didn’t enjoy this one. Mild aroma of beer. Taste was slight malt and bitter hops with absolutely zero taste. Why?

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
12oz bottle. A pretty solid beer, incorporates the rye well. Filtered glowing orange, big frothy off-white head despite the micro-hiss when opening the bottle. Hoppy, earthy, rye aroma. A nice steady bitterness, a nice steady sweetness. Quite well balanced, a very enjoyable beer. Classic, easy drinking. Nice to see the rye malt used judiciously.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz. Clear orange-amber with a lasting eighth-inch of creamy foam. Mild nose of caramel, toast and citrus. Taste is caramel, pine resin, toast, orange, lightly peppery rye and a hint of mint. Near-medium body has smooth low-average carbonation, a good balance and a nice drying finish. This one started very mildly, but really grew on me as the rye kept building. Pretty tasty sessioner with a bit of an English feel.
