COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Brewed in the aftermath of the storm. We gathered some Rye, Maize, Barley and Abbey malts and whipped them up into a frenzy then spiced them with Golding and Tettnang hops. An easy to enjoy, unfiltered ale at 4.1% abv.

UPDATED: DEC 3, 2012 on draft at brewery, very clean crisp highly drinkable blond golden ale, these are pretty charming expecially when you’ve been slamming strong beers

Nothing to write home about here. Very bland and hay like flavors with a very light hoppiness. Needs more of everything.

Draft at the brewery. This is a watery and flavorless beer that isn’t offensive, but is lacking in character. Through a cloudy ruby head, most of the beer’s flavors from the rye and barley malts with a little bit of sweet from the hops. They also had a cask version of this beer with habeneros, which I much preferred.
