650 ml bottle purchased at The Tap. A near clear gold with an Amber hue, thin head. Aromas are pepper, weak fruit and very weak rye malt.
The flavor shows a weak rye malt backbone with a mildly lingering citrus bitterness.
Body is lighter then Medium. I was searching for more rye Or more hops. It’s drinkable but don’t expect to much.
