What is rye? Rye is a cereal grain historically grown in our region. It has been cultivated since the time of the early settlers due to the scrappy and hearty ability to withstand harsh climates and poor growing conditions. Did you know George Washington grew rye and used it to ferment whiskey? Were pretty sure that is a fact. You will notice the distinct notes of rye, a slightly spicy and grainy aroma not lost in the shuffle of hops and the four other malted grains we use in this fine seasonal addition to our 2X line.

12oz. bottle: this one pours a clear, lighter amber color. There was a small off-white head that didn’t linger long or leave any lacing. Surprisingly lighter aroma for an 8% beer. Some sweet malts, a hint of rye and a hint of spices. The taste is good, but not too exciting. Malts, with just a hint of sweetness. A touch of the rye and spices. Good, but could be better.

Presentation: It was poured from a brown 12 oz bottle into a pint glass. Appearance: It has a deep honey amber color with a very slight haze. There is some visible carbonation and a tall thick head on top. Head retention and lacing is very good.Smell: The nose is big has some solid malty sweetness along with some deep citrus hop notes.Taste / Palate: There is a big full bodied malty base with a good mix of bready sweetness and spice up front. This is quickly balanced with solid hop bitterness and orange like citrus hop flavor notes.

Aurelius (4062) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - JUN 5, 2014
Clear, intense medium orange-amber beer. Filmy head. Nice citrusy malt aroma -- gel-like. Woody bitterness up front some vegetal notes, lightly sweet and toasty. Lingering bitter finish. Light but starchy-feeling body. Some off notes in the finish. Nice malting, generally. On tap, Baby Proof, upstairs.

Ruddy brown pour. Aroma and flavor both have great toasty rye character. Really quite good.

3/17/14. Draft at Mateos. Pours with a nice two finger head. Wonderful hop nose with piney notes. As expected, nice thick mouthfeel with deep complex malts and hop profile. Finishes strong. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
