Draft at the Sybarite Pig in Boca Raton. Tulip. Pours an amber color with a thick white head. Aroma of rye, bread, grass and cereal. The taste was similar with a mild, but defined rye hop and a balanced malt base. Bread and cereal with a grass and slight spruce. Medium body, light carbonation.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours copper with a large head.
Nose shows tropical fruit, including mango, papaya and lychee. A fair bit of sweet malt too along with a spicy rye bready note.
Harsher flavours, not as sweet as the aroma would suggest. More bready and toasty notes. A fairly aggressive bitterness in the finish.
Nice moderately high carbonation.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Brilliant and sparkling, ruby hued copper and donned by a shortlived, off-white foam. Nose hints at marmalade and caramelised figs, rye bread and vitamin ’C’ tablets, but so faint it was difficult pick up. Well spiced, woody and nutty palate with a twiggy, herbal malt and hop finish. Clammy and quickly sweet once warmed. Lasting rye spice and phenolic clap. Body is light with subtle carbonation. Quite boring to be honest! (16fl.Oz, BB 27/03/14, Cellarbrations Carlisle)
