Sample at From the Vine on 7/27/12. Clear copper pour with a thin off-white head. Aroma of rye, caramel and grassy hops; very fresh, almost like wort. Malty and caramelly flavor with spicy rye before a grassy hop finish.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle at home. Pours a very murky brown with a minimal head. Aroma is serious rye, caramel, whole wheat bread, herbs, and earth. The taste is very rye forward, slight caramel back end, toffee, dank weed, and dandelions. The finish is somewhat bitter and rye. Medium light body, grainy texture. I like this style of beer and this is good.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12oz bottle. Murky amaber-tan body. Thin, steady white head. Spicy sweet rye aroma. Clean malt-centered body. I’m not really that into amber malt or rye, but this is OK. A little wobbly, odd, but well settled in quality malt tones.

12oz bottle - pours murky amber with off white head. Nose is rye and herbal. Reminds me of a trip to a bourbon distillery. Slightly off putting aftertaste along with grapefruit. Mildly bitter.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours amber with a thin tan head, turns to a collar, not much lacing. Aroma is herbal hops and plenty of rye spice notes, malty. Taste is about the same, hints of rye with a herbal and slightly bitter hop finish that doesn’t linger. Easy drinking, not bad, not great, probably won’t buy again.
