Reddish copper, decent head. Nice dry, woody aroma. Taste is bone dry, nice woody, hickory flavor. Dry finish. Not much malt, but I’m cool with that.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Draft at Brewhaus. Pours brown with an inch of white foam. Slight rye note on the nose. A little bit of rye on the tongue but it’s overpowered by the hop bitterness of the finish. It’s a solid enough Pale ale but the rye’s not adding much.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
BITTER, but that’s what I expected from a pale ale with rye. On draft at the tap room and I’m assuming this is the correct name for it (it’s the only Rye listed). It was moderately hopped but for once possibly ever it could have used a little sweetness to offset the punch. Great beer to try, not sure I’d put it on my list of favorites.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: MAR 30, 2013 Draft in the tap room (8/25/12). Poured pale amber with a medium-sized off-white head. Aroma was moderately hoppy (pine and citrus) with a nice maltiness and a touch of rye. Flavor was all of that, but it was ruined by a pronounced soapiness -- possibly a fermentation problem?
Rerating (3/30/13): draft at Slice. Aroma and flavor as before, but the soapiness is gone. Nicely balanced beer.

4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Little to no aroma. Appearance is perfect with a lasting head. Taste has a nice rye flavor. an amazing amount of rye since rye is hard to pull off. Balance is not with hops but rye. Yeast comes out very clear. The best standard taste beer Straight to ale has. But an increase rye balance. Very impressive. Nice sweetness very good beer.
