8/21/11. 22oz bomber thanks to Byron at Liquor Loft/Proof. Floral aromas of slightly old hops and a bit of honey and spice. Relatively mild flavor that also hints at honey and floral hops with an even spicier lingering kick. Relatively mild and subdued, but not bad.

In short: A very straightforward honeyed rye beer. I like rye beer.
How: Bottle 22oz, consumed fresh a few weeks after receiving it from TURDFERGUSON, thanks a lot Sam
The look: Almost clear dark blonde body topped by a very small white head
In long: Nose is unmistakably rye with a true rye bread aroma. Taste is smooth and straight forward, this is a not very hoppy rye ale like a Founders Reds Rye, Bear Republic Hop Rod Rye or a Terrapin Rye Squared (to name a few well known ones). This is a straightforward rye beer with a mild citrusy hopping. A bit of honey and some floral hops, smooth carbonation. Overall this is as straightforward of a rye beer as one can imagine, except that it is a bit on the sweet side with a strong honey presence. I liked it because I like rye beers but don’t expect anything more than a beer that tastes like rye. Oh man I love drinking beer… but why does my favourite hobby has to also be my worst habit?

Bottle at the TURD tasting. Pours gold with a white head. Light flowery hoppy aroma, with a hint of sweetness and rye malty notes. The flavor has flowery hops, a light malty sweetness, rye, and light herbal notes. Pretty good.
