BVery (6939) - Burnsville, Minnesota, USA - FEB 17, 2013
Bottle from Lizardville Rocky River. Slightly murky light amber pour with minimal head. Rye and dusty caramel malt nose, taste is fairly sweet. Medium to lighter palate. Not bad.

markwise (4543) - North of Tampa, Florida, USA - JAN 21, 2013
On draft at the Brew Kettle. Pours a medium yellow-orange with a white head. Nose is some light rye, some some sweet malt, and some mild hops. Flavor follows with a drying finish. Not a bad session rye, but not my favorite.

Bottle. Pours amber with no head. Aroma is hops and rye with a nice soft, hoppy flavor. Overall a good beer.

ddemmingjr (720) - Chagrin Falls, Ohio, USA - JAN 8, 2013
Bottle: pours hazy hazelnut, reasonable tan had that recedes. Nose is subtle. Sweet malts, rye, herbal hops and some cedar. On the palate, nuts, rye, toast, earth and some caramel malt sweetness followed by some spicy bitterness. Well balanced and grows on you as it warms. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

cheap (4202) - Beaver Valley, Beaver County, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 20, 2012
fairly rare beer. big foaming head. doesn’t smell to strong, has a slight hop olfactory. big bitter impact, sizzly mouth coating stuff, wew. really sets in after a few moments. the head on this beer is king! yes big foaming nasty nellie of a bitte beer. the sizzle on this almost makes the terrible bitter linger acceptable. Finish as stated, long piercing bitter arrow down yer gullet. Must be more than 6%. uea, mays well call it a IPA.

rondphoto (2272) - Lakeside Park, Kentucky, USA - OCT 25, 2012
Clear dark amber with a 1" ivory head that never quits, splashes of lace. The taste is mostly roasted malt with something added (rye?), followed by enough bittering to eliminate the malt. Works well.

mcnealc31 (255) - Elida, Ohio, USA - OCT 12, 2012
Pours hazy orange, just like expected. Very sticky white head. Hops, rye, and caramel in the aroma. Spicy, hoppy, and a very long grapefruit finish. Big flavor and very well balanced. Definitely hoppier than I expected and the rye doesn’t come through as much as I had hoped, but it’s there. Very nice beer from The Brew Kettle. The flavors all work together well, but I would prefer more rye flavor. Love the label.

ADesenberg (630) - Ohio, USA - OCT 5, 2012
Bottle: pours nice, red, coppery color with a big tan head. Aromas of sweet, caramel and spicy bread with citrusy grapefruit. The flavor is a real treat... Well balanced, and it develops well throughout the whole taste. Great stuff.

superspak (2828) - Michigan, USA - SEP 9, 2012
12 ounce bottle into pint glass, no bottle dating(but this can’t be too old). Big pop of carbonation upon opening. Pours a very hazy reddish orange color with a huge 2-3 finger light khaki head that lasts forever. This took forever to fully pour in to the glass. Obscene amounts of carbonation streaming up from the bottom of the glass. Aromas of grapefruit, caramel, rye, toast, orange rind, pine, and light herbal. Ok aromas, but it is difficult to really smell anything through 3 fingers of head that wont go anywhere. Taste of grapefruit, caramel, pine, rye, toast, orange zest, floral, and herbal. Fair amount of bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of citrus, rye, caramel, toast, and herbal on the finish for a bit. Good balance of bitterness and sweetness; with good flavor balance as well. No cloying flavors after the finish. Medium-high carbonation and medium body; with a fairly creamy and crisp mouthfeel that is good. Alcohol is well hidden with only a slight warming noticed after the finish. Overall this is a good rye beer. The obscene over carbonation almost killed it for me, but after swirling out some of the carbonation it turned out pretty good. Some nice balance of flavors; very smooth to drink. I can bet this is a nice one with proper carbonation levels.

Dogbrick (8657) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - SEP 4, 2012
Sample at the DBLDP on 09/02/2012: Dark amber color with a medium off-white head that recedes quickly to an outer ring. Small patches of lacing. The aroma is rye spices, malt and hops. Light-bodied with flavors of rye malt, grassy hops and a bit of fruit. The finish is hoppy with a rye aftertaste. Decent overall.
