3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Malty aroma has a decided rye overtone and hints of hops and yeast. It comes out of the growler a clear chestnut with a fine-bubbled creamy wheat head. Rye dominates the sharp, crisp flavor, which has green wood and malty notes and subtle caramel and nutty hints. Smooth texture has just a little fizz and leaves a rather bitter green wood finish. OK, not Sixpoint’s best, but maybe this was not their best batch.

16oz can. Pours opaque brown with a lasting creamy off-white head. Dense malty aroma. Medium/heavy body with foamy carbo, smooth on the mouth, sweetness and caramel front end with a hint of bitterness emerging to balance the middle. Overall an honest brew but maybe a little sweet for me.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Can straight from Brooklyn by Martin G., thanks man! Pours dark amber with a thin white head. Aroma is a bit weird: smoky, spicy with hops taking a back seat. Taste is dry with a nice sharp bitterness. Flavors are more on the hoppy side though, floral for the most part. It is also a little fruity, not sure if I like that though. Overall, an OK RyePA.
