2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Old rating note I found on my note pad on my iPod, Haven’t seen this in about 2 years. On to the rating. 12 oz. bottle purchased at Julio’s Liqours. Cloudy gold color with a very weak nose; mild rye malt is all that is found.
The flavor is grain, rye through the middle leading into sweet malts and a weak undisclosed hop in the finish. Thin close to watery body and texture. Well all I can really say about this is.... You get what you pay for. Weak at best.

Light toasted malt aroma. Clean ale with a bit of chewy rye to it a some nice floral hop notes. Golden in color with a white head.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12oz bottle. I drank this 5 minutes ago and already can’t remember much about it. Fairly non-descript I guess. It must have been pretty good given the speed it was sucked down. Don’t remember any pronounced rye though it was definitely in there. Above average for a Wachusett brew which makes it just average.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
The pour on this one is a murky, pale yellow with a fizzy white heads the bubbles down a little bit. The aroma is full of grains and sweetened malts. The mouthfeel is of medium texture and smooth texture. The taste is also rather grainy and malty with a minor hop bite at the finish.

I rather enjoyed this one. Better served cold. Rather on the light and refreshing side, although not as good as some other Ryes I have tried.

Pours a five finger white head that fades slowly to a thin layer leaving a good lace. Medium carbonation and medium bodied. Crystal clear amber color. Nose is hoppy. Flavor is hoppy with some caramel. $1.85 for a 12oz bottle from Colonial Spirits, Acton, MA.

Suttree’s Nothing else to do in Mid-February Tasting. Sample from a bottle thanks to jcwattsrugger. Pale golden orange, whitish cover. Peppery rye aroma, bits of caramel. Taste is strong rye, sweet underneath the pepper. Not a big rye fan, but this one has it if you want it.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours light gold into a shaker. Off-white head spiders and craters as it recedes at a medium pace. Rye and hop aromas. Full upfront with sharp rye turning to a sweep hop in the lasting finish.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
I like rye beers. I think they taste good, which important. this one had an odd aroma - rye, of course, but also fruity smels, as well. Flavor is rye, again, and mushroom (?) and more fruity notes. More rye in the finish. Thanks to jwattsrugger for this one!

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a cloudy light amber. Typical head that lasts throughout the drinking. Leaves a moderate amount of lace.
Pleasant blend of hop and slightly grainy malt to the nose.
Generously hopped with a soft, dry taste. Neutral body with an above average level of carbonation. A touch of grapefruit and pine to the hop bitterness. Modest aftertaste of cream and bitterness. An easy-to-drink beer without any specialness to it.
