Taster at Standard Market. Listed on the menu as a Rye Pale Ale with hibiscus and a single hop, but doesn’t mention what that hop is. Reddish brown in the glass, holds a thin layer of foam after to be the last of three beers tasted. Smell is spicy with specialty grains. Seems to be an American hop with a note of citrus involved. The taste reveals a note of nectar from the hibiscus, which works well with the spicy grain and hop, and especially with the lightly salty nut mix they serve here. The end result is a party for each of my taste buds.
Had this at the brewpub. poured reddish color with a noticeable floral aroma. Mild hibiscus profile balanced with some malt/sweet characteristics and hops in the end. kaser (6314) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - APR 6, 2014
Draft pour at Links brewpub. Dark amber red color with small white foamy head. Unusual fruit and slight cherry flavor. Haven’t really had anything like it. Not bad not my favorite
