COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The rhinoceros may not be the king of the jungle, but he commands respect nonetheless. Powerful and distinctive, Telegraph Rhinoceros pays homage to one of the world’s most majestic and endangered creatures. Brewed with a hefty dose of rye malt and balanced by a ridiculous amount of hops, our "rye wine" is truly a unique beast. Be careful... this rhino may seem mellow at first, but is known to charge unexpectedly!

jcwattsrugger (11083) - Florida and, New Jersey, USA - AUG 16, 2012
750 ml bottle–thanks to a generous trader-pours hazy copper with a tan head. Aroma is light/medium fruit, malty/wheat. Taste is light/medium fruit-pear, spice hops, rye/malty/wheat-caramel/toast. 3.4 OK, as it warms, [1st glass I let warm to maybe 40, 2nd glass to mid/upper 40s] nice softening and some more esters+flavors. 3.8

bhensonb (11046) - Woodland, California, USA - MAY 1, 2010
C&C 750 from South Bay Drug. Pours hazy, rather pale blood orange with a foamy beige head. Body is thick and carbonation is creamy/foamy. Flavor is lots of malt, kind of rough like rye, something like apricot, and enough hop to pretty much balance out what must be a lot of sugar. There’s a whole lot of flavor here. Wow. Very impressive.

brokensail (10914) - Orange County, California, USA - JUN 11, 2011
A: The pour is a slightly hazed dark amber color with a thick off-white head. S: A distinct white wine aroma is immediately noticeable. Floral and perfumey with some pale malts and brown sugar. There is almost a bit of tartness to the nose with a definite fruitiness. T: The flavor is quite strange. Banana and citrus? Lots of other fruits, including pineapple and pear. There’s a mild to moderate hop character with a definite acidity and tartness (though light). M: Medium in body with a medium to high carbonation. O: Very, very strange. The tartness shouldn’t be there, but I liked it.
