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.

DiarmaidBHK (3387) - Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 11, 2012
Can from wine warehouse. Pours brown with an inch of white head that leaves a fair amount of lacing. Slight notes of rye on the nose. A bit of citrus hops to blend with the rye flavor but it seems rather faint. Maybe it would be bolder on tap.

May not be giving it itís due. Drinking from can and smoking a Rocky Patel Edge Lite Toro. Lighter in body than I would have expected and less Rye character than I wanted. A bit sour, but not the Rye sour. Stays true to Six Pointís resiny leanings. I could really see this as a hot day quencher if it was in the 4-5 range of ABV. All that said, I do like this beer and would definitely recommend. And I am becoming a fan of the can.

TXBadger (1256) - Dallas, Texas, USA - JUN 23, 2014
Pours a nice clear amber color with off-white head. Spice, rye, caramel malt, roasted malt on the nose; follows onto the palate. Finishes with a little rye spice. Very nice.

highlandlad (1413) - Blue Mountains, AUSTRALIA - JUN 18, 2014
Richly flavoured and highly satisfying rye ale. Likely the best rye ale from the handful I have come across. I could imagine drinking a lot of this if the price point in Australia was less punishing. Brown as Mississippi mud, hazy with a thick head. Ripe nose of summer fruits - strawberries, passionfruit, quince - on a bed of grains. Medium-bodied with restrained carbonation. Great bitterness, with some pine and mint in the finish. Spice, blackberries and a little alcoholic burn. Great drinking. Side note: Iíve read the blurb on the can three times I still canít make sense of it. Makes BrewDog read like Shakespeare. (One pint can from Leura Cellars. BB: 27 March 2014)

gripweed57 (608) - Hamilton Square, New Jersey, USA - MAY 25, 2014
16 ounce can. Amber orange color. Big bubbly beige head. Rich grainy malt nose with a touch of earthiness and brown sugar. Sweet toasted malt flavor has an underlying bitterness. The grainy rye character makes for a spicy backdrop. Finishes malty with a nod to the complex hops that seem to be hidden below the surface.

Mep3222 (421) - East Greenbush, New York, USA - MAY 17, 2014
Malty, with some peppery flavors and aroma. Solid hop balance and finishes bitter with a bit if pepper. Good beer. Malt dominates. Slightly heavy but if in that mood would have again. Almost spicy. Nice winter beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

EithCubes (4746) - New Jersey, USA - MAY 3, 2014
Pint can. Nose is partly dull, partly spritely, rye on caramel with light citrus and nice CTZ-style hops. Pours chestnut brown thatís darker and has a lot of red when in the glass, supports a large and dense rocky cream head (Orval-like lacing and cloud formations). Body is thin but not watery, very smooth and really creamy. Taste semi-dry with light but "there" bitterness, though just barely; basic American hops that are somewhat woody and dank, earthy, but not heavy on the citrus or pine. Clean and balanced throughout. Rye is more of an accent here but everythingís tailored to meet its needs, if that makes any sense. Surprised at how mild and drinkable, alcohol seems non-existence and the mouthfeel/body are straight cuddly. This is the twee answer to typically aggro posturing with rye beers; I am a fan!

473 ml. can. BBD 27 MAR 2014. Pours a medium, well retained, ivory head with attractive lacing, over a very slightly hazy medium amber (SRM 15) body....nose is rye cereal, hints of treacle from the malts, light pine, hints of citrus from the hops, minimal esters.....taste is malt dominant, slightly sweet, with rye spice tones, lighter hops with pine, resin, light citrus notes, finishing bitter, minimal esters.....mouth feel, medium body, slightly sticky, minimal alcohol, no astringency, light acid on finish. This particular can was 3 weeks beyond its BBD. Additionally it had not been refrigerated, as requested on the can. It is, those considered, a nice beer. The malts may have been a bit more dominant than when it is fresher, because hops do lose their subtle floral, and more complex citrus notes as they age. There were no pineapple or apricot notes indicative of quite elderly hops, so I think the beer is probably close to its natural aromas and flavors. BJCP 7/3/15/4/7

(Draught at Bishopís Arms Folkungagatan, Stockholm, 7 March 2014) Reddish amber colour with frothy, off-white head. Malty nose with notes of apricots, orange peel, rye bread and resin. Malty, spicy taste with citrus, orange peel, rye bread and a generous resinous bitterness in the finish. Medium body, with a certain sweetness. Spicy and quite tasty. Nice one.
