Pronounced rosehips and lavender on the nose, would make a wonderful perfume. Crystal clear tea, medium yellow head, good lacing. Tastes like it smells, with a dried leaf base.. Fairly clean, thin body. Quite a hoppy amber.

Clear red-brown, nice lasting foam on top. Floral hop aroma, subtle. Same for taste, with some roast. Not really getting anything from the rye. Pretty decent though, easy drinker.

Pours dark brown with red hues and a thick off white head. Nose is spicy, peppers, caramel, hay and plums. Taste is sweet with mild bitterness, a little dull. The mouthfeel is crisp and clean, the body is medium and the finish is long. Very drinkable.
