3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft. Rye aromas and some caramel sweetness rising from the copper-hued ale. Plenty of caramel and malt on the tongue. Lots of hop bitterness, but still quaffable. Hop finish is balanced by the sweet malts at play in this beer.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at the Wynkoop Brewery 9/27/06. Clear copper color, light tan head. Aroma is some soft malt and light hops. Flavor is well balanced; nice soft malt with some nuttiness upfront, finishes fairly bitter. Medium light body. Overall, a really good everyday beer...soft maltiness of an oktoberfest, yet bitter. If they toned down the bitterness, it might actually pass as an oktoberfest, even with the ale yeast.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
I found this to be slightly lacking for the style. Some decent fruit flavors find their way into the mix with some sweet maltiness that turns slightly watery and loses everything it had going for it with a lack of body and flavor.
