3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
From the bottle. Dec 2014 expiration date. Now in bottle. The pour is a slightly murky looking pale yellow-bronze with a white foamy head that stays around and leaves a lot of lacing. Rye grain, toasted malts, earthy hops and overripe fruit are on the nose. Better than medium body. Same grainy flavor that the nose suggests with a moderately lingering bitterness hanging on at the very end. Topnotch? Not really. But quite drinkable.
