3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from KegNBottle (NC): Poured a dense dark golden honey hue with a slight tint of amber red while a thick development of foam head which took several minutes to simmer down. Nose is faint with minor notes of whole grain wheat bread and perhaps a chance of rye, however, a notice of subtle hops is there as well. The drink is balanced smooth but allows more favor towards the bready like malts and suggests more evidence of the rye than the aroma would have led me to believe. This beer reminds me a lot of Rogue Ales which is a good thing since they’re one of my favorite breweries.

An OK beer. Nothing really pops out though. Some bitterness and some spice. Easy drinking nut not terribly memorable.
