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.

Cask at wetherspoons sheperds bush. Deep red glowing colour, fine white stable head. Sweet malty nose with very floral hop and tropical fruit. Hearty palate and round flavours of warm cardboard and cookies with a metal finish

swanmann (598) - Norman, Oklahoma, USA - JAN 12, 2014
Can: Rusty, amber color with 2 fingers of tan, sticky foam. The aroma is piney with some caramel, with some florals and a slight medicinal hint. It’s somewhat acidic, bitter, twangy, a touch of black pepper with a nice shot of sweet caramel right down the middle. The finish is semi-dry, the palate medium bodied with crisp carbonation. Very yummy with a nice bite of rye.

Vanz (189) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - JAN 7, 2014
Smells of citrus vita-wheat. Lots of rye and citrus hops. Mild bitterness from the rye, really really smooth. Super drinkable rye.

Pours a dark amber colour with a beige head. Aroma is malt, caramel, nuts and grains. Taste is medium sweet leading to a grainy finish. Nice

Can. Aroma of bread and pilsener beer. Taste is oddly sweet, with no real remarkable taste traits. (from notes)

Quite sweet for an ale with caramel from the malt, fairly smooth and mildly bitter from the piney hops. Not bad. It does say rye. Shame I’m not a rye drinker.

hawthorne00 (2410) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - DEC 30, 2013
Can. Slightly hazy copper with a large off-white head. Subdued aroma of caramel, sour bread and spices. Sweet and bready with that sourish spiciness that says rye. Moderate bitterness. Pleasant creamy mouthfeel with moderate carbonation. Likeable enough, but there’s not much going on for the 6.3%.

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

asheft (2500) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 28, 2013
[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.
