COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
They should be good men; their affairs as righteous: But all hoods make not monks. Beneath a deep blanket of snow there is a cereal grain that can survive the harsh winters and acidic soils - RYE. Like a draped hood over a monk, it is the righteousness inside that shines.

12/29/13. Can given to me by Jonas Nelson and drank as a 2nd beer after chickies's and Pete's. This is the 3rd beer from this brewer. All cans and all have an exceptional full carbonated mouth feel. Very bubbly and lacing stays on the glass well throughout drinking it. Creamy, hoppy, spicy with some bready notes. All in all this is probably one of the first Rye Ales I've had and really liked it ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

[Can] Hoppy on the nose, with pine and pineapple and a bit of grapefruit. Some metallic, nutty accent also present. Cloudy ruddy brown under a persistent, lacy, off-white cover. Assertively bitter flavour that is made a bit harsh from the rye, but is complemented by potent grapefruit peel and pine. Caramel and dried fruit malt character is there, but overshadowed by the hops potency. Medium body, medium carbonation, slightly astringent.

Cask by hand-pump at West Kirk, Ayr (brewed at Adnams Brewery) - clear reddish brown, thin bubbly head, spicy malty aroma, no lacing, caramel, toffee, cinnamon, nicely balanced, Iím not so keen on the spiciness here, but well drinkable

Tap at Wetherspoons Edinburgh airport. Pours browny red with loose foam off white head. Malts on the nose. Slightly spicy taste, medium body, a bit fizzy. Ok

Best by: 27SEPT11 A: Copper brown ale with less than a single finger of peanut foam which falls slowly to a sheet of the same. Nice ring on sheet lacing. Limited clarity with red hues along the lightlines. S: The rye seems pretty strong here. The hops are present, and remind me of hay, and grass. Hints of grapefruit. Malt profile is biscuity and sweet. T: What strikes me first is the spicy-sour rye, which is well balanced with sweet malts and bitter, earthy hops. This is well balanced, and actually reminds me of a well done ESB. Has a herbal tone as well. M: Creamy and medium bodied with lower carb. Appropriate for this beer. Finish is slightly creamy and slick with longevity. O: Well done beer. I would prefer this on a fall evening where the air is cool and clammy, this would suit that setting well. With the malt bill on this, I think an imperial version would be quite appealing and have high cellar potential. Serving type: can 07-28-2011

Bland and uninspiring - no clarity of flavour. i was expecting more flavour considering the ABV.

Just a more malty IPA, really. Little complexity. A reasonable drink, nothing special. From the tap at the Wheaty.

I expected more rye. This isnít bad, but itís nothing spectacular. It pours caramel brown with a medium size, long lasting head. The aroma is big malt, a little tingle, background notes something like apple butter. The flavor is like an American strong ale, but not a strong strong ale. It reminds me of a watery Arrogant Bastard or maybe a little like Lagunitas Lucky 13 without the rich, strong character.

Can poured a light brown color with a thick covering of off white head. Aroma has malt, rye, piney hops, and caramel sweetness. Mouth feel is on the light side and there is a nice steady carbonation. Flavor has rye and light bitterness, some piney hops, and plenty of malt at the core.

Looks like a normal Brown ale. Flavor is pretty mild. Doughy. A little hop bitterness and rye spice, but overall it didnt really hold my interest.
