3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draft at The Pour House in Westmont, NJ.
Pours a cloudy, dark golden straw color with a one finger frothy white head that slowly settles into a lasting ring. Splotches of lace left behind. Doesn’t look like a rye beer.
Earthy hop aroma with citrus sweetness and a subtle vegetal quality. Grass and pine followed by lemon peel and grapefruit. Also some subtle sweetness and pale malt.
Medium bodied but fuller than expected with a strong bready/yeasty quality. Not very rye like with lots of dry, earthy hops and zesty, peppery spice. More like a hoppy wheat beer. Hints of bread, yeast, citrus hops and pale malts. Oddly metallic and astringent in finish.

Sampled at Brewvival 2012. Pours a faint yellow with a slight chill haze and ring of white head. Aroma and flavor are very similar, lightly grassy, lemony, and clean but with a semi bitterness on the finish., not anything amazing, but pretty good.

Interesting beer. The finish reminds me a lot of a wheat beer, but it has pale lager qualities too it. A banana and clove aroma dominates the nose. Nice light gold color with white head and lacing.
