3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Fruity citrus aroma that is really strong. The beer is balanced well without too much hop, a nice texture and a great darker caramel color.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Un-Muzzling Olde Muzzlehatch Ratings, #3. 2006 bottle (22 oz) consumed on November 10, 2008 in Burlington, VT, from a Duvel glass at slightly below cellar temperature (to start). Pours with a large, billowing head that is faintly tan (or taupe? I always get those mixed up - taupe sounds more geeky though so lets go with that), leaving some thick, chunky lacing behind as it recedes to a murky rust-copper body. Aroma is very sweet, redolent of bubblegum and fruity berries, a bit mushy and perhaps slightly oxidized at this point...a terrific soft mouthfeel with light prickliness, the body is quite sweet on the front but becomes tart, oxidized and sour towards the finish, which is burnt coffee and strikes me (or struck me) as rather odd. Not exactly great, but interesting, and Iíll have to try a fresher bottle soon.

This one of the most richest, full bodied Red ales I've ever had. The Rye really comes out as an earthy finish and just the right amount of hops makes this beer a delight!

Sample at WOBFest 2016. Had high hopes as Iím usually a fan of rye beers, but this one fell a bit flat. Not awful, not great.

Pours a clear reddish amber color with off-white head. Floral notes, some caramel, and some roast on the nose; follows onto the palate. Medium bodied. Finishes with some caramel sweetness and a little bite from the hops. Not bad.

bottle @ Jungle Jimís / Eastgate OH --- Clear ruby brown color, off-white head, lace cobwebs. Aroma of malt. Taste is malt and rye that rotate with citrus hops on an even-steven basis all the way through a medium finish. This is a rye dominant brew that is well done.
