3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
My first time down to Atlanta, I was lucky enough to try this is both bottles and on tap. Apparently if you order a beer at a bar in Atlanta without specifying draught or bottled, they automatically will give you the bottled stuff.
The Bottled: Didn’t give me a glass so cannot comment on color or head. Difficult to smell the true aroma. It had a nice palate and was quite refreshing. Tasted the hops and malt but nothing really too interesting. It didn’t really stand out to me.
On Tap: Pours a nice caramel color with a quickly dissapating head with a slight lacing on top. You really taste the fresh malt and hops in this one. The rye flavors also really pulled through without being too overwhelming. Slightly dry fragrantly hoppy finish. Nice sweet fresh aroma and the beer is also nicely balanced.
This ended up being my favorite local beer during my trip. Make sure you get it on tap. The bottled version does not do it justice.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 oz. bottle with a best before date of 8/21/15. Thanks going to weihenweizen for this opportunity. Copper in color with fast dying head. Aroma has a large fruit character with the rye coming in underneath.
The flavor has the mentioned rye with some mild cascade hops ( floral and fruity) the body is on the real thin side (borderline watery). Other than the thin mouthfeel this is a pleasing brew. No off flavors, freshness is paramount on this one. The rye saves this brew for me.
