2.1 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Draft. Amber goldfish pout. Smells like body odor, old garbage can. Flavor is more redeeming. Medicinal, pretzel, some floral hops, caramel. Bad.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft to taster. Looks solid; a transparent deeper gold with thin white lacing. Smells of mild grain and rye spice. Tastes like it smells with an average mouthfeel. Okay; wish it was more robust though.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft. Pours a dark gold with a half finger of white head. Aroma is mostly citrus, with light notes of bread and rye. Taste follows aroma. Medium bodied with a surprisingly thick and creamy texture. Lively carbonation and a long, dry finish. Very good overall. More mild than I prefer but very drinkable.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft at Ei8ht Ball. Pours a clear golden color with a small white head. The aroma and flavor have toasted malts, a decent spicy rye bite, light fruit character, mild plus bitterness to the finish. I would actually like a bit more rye bite to this, but it’s nice that some local guys went out to brew this one.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Taster on tap at Ei8ht Ball. Clear golden color, slightly orange. Little slightly off-white head. Good rows and bits of lace. Smooth, crisp, lighter carbonation. Very lightly soft. Lightly dry finish. Bready malt, lightly spicy rye notes. Kind of mild, but nice. Hint of citrus, lightly spicy, lightly piney hop. Flavor profile is like that of a golden ale, pretty reasonably snappy and easy drinking golden ale. Good moderate bitter taste, light sweetness. Solid rye golden ale. Would be better appreciated by the pint, naturally.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft. Poured clear dark copper color with an average frothy white head that mostly lasted and produced good to excellent lacing. Moderate rye & sweet malt aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Moderate bittersweet flavor with a medium bittersweet finish of moderate duration. My expectations where met.
