COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Amber brew with thin head that fades fast. Smells of Rye and caramel. Can taste the malty sweetness but the Rye takes over the taste with a nice pepper spice that makes this brew very good. This one has a thickness that coats the toungue but doesn’t leave a syrup finish, rather leaves the lingering taste of malts and spice. Excellent brew.

Pours a nice looking amber color with decent lacing and head retention. Smells sweet, malty nd of rye. Tastes quite similar with nice strong rye notes at the end. A solid beer.

This one has a bit of color in it, and it isn’t from the rye. So on top of spices rye and juicy citrus hops, there’s a bit of caramel sweetness. It all works very well. It is doesn’t reveal its high ABV. Still, it’s more fall than summer.

For a specialty grain, it’s pretty darn good. Aroma is notes of grain with little or no distinct hop character--not that great. Taste picks up the slack with an infusion of cereal, brand flakes, rye, toasted malt, hints of hoppy goodness, and maybe corn? Finish is nice and clean--wasn’t expecting that. For the final gravity, it’s an interesting, well executed brew and something off the beaten path...I’ll forgive you for the grammatical error in your commercial description.

Hair6a11 (1423) - Illinois, USA - MAR 8, 2015
Bottle; Pour is fairly clear, golden / copper with a two finger, fine bubble off white head into this glass - its sticky on the lacing front - with average retention here. The nose is yeasty - floral , bready, with some spent grain notes and feint caramel presence. There’s some spicey elements here with modest hop presence as well. The flavor profile is something else entirely , however - it doesn’t lean towards a positive experience. Heavy grain weighs the experience down - peppery spice, moves to a strong grass presence - theres a touch of lemon zest here - while it moves to cereals and ends with more of that yeasty note. I could do without more of this one -

Aroma and appearance are pretty non descript. However, the bready malts and rye really shine in the flavor and palate. I really enjoy this beer. Have been impressed with this one and the 2XIPA as well. Good for ST which is really a hit and miss brewery for me overall.

Sweetly aromatic rye ale. Plenty of rye taste, some nice sweetness, and a little warmth in the close. Another goods one from ST.

On tap at the Fred. Copper color, with a small, beige head, and some good lacing. Nice nose of caramel, juniper, sharp rye, and syrup. Flavor is sweet, with some savory spice, and a nice, mellow bitterness. Medium to heavy body, very creamy, a little astringent, and sharp. This is a nice, well balanced, flavorful, and interesting beer.
