3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Ap: Fluffy two-finger head rises up just to the top of my glass. It fades slowly over a semi clear pale orange color. Low retention.
Ar: Some interesting malts, quite a bit of the fruity spicy rye aroma, a mild grassy hop aroma with a touch of bread and pear.
T: Dry and crisp. Some malts are toasty and pale, with a definite rye flavor. Some spicy and fruity flavors, and a grassy hop flavor too. Mild bitterness a dry grassy finish.
P: Medium to lighter.
O: A very nice rye pale ale. Very sessionable and understated in its flavor. Not tiring to the tastebuds but still flavorful and refreshing.

Very bitter hoppiness but the rye malt really cuts into the bitterness on the finish. As a big fan of rye whiskey and other rye beer I really enjoyed this one. Not your usual pale ale but a real nice change of pace from the norm.

This rye PA poured a medium Amber colour with a nice, foamy, off white head. Scents include spruce hops, light citrus hops and a little varnish? First swig was a little thin but a good belt of citrus hops. Flavours of tea, grapefruit and malt most prominent. Finish is bitter with hop flavour lingering...

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.
