3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
tap at Oktoberfest 2011. dark brown colour with a small light beige head. aroma is citrus hops and malts. taste is a bit peppery with a nice amount of grapefruit from the hops. medium body. not a bad beer, but the Rye profile isn’t what i’d have liked it to be. it was barely there.
My Bottom Line : czar (9324) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 9, 2012
Spicy rye and yeast phenolics scent this Roggenbier’s polished barley malts, yielding a highy drinkable pint.
Further Personal Perceptions :
-A sheet of foam tops the misty amber.
-The finish is a beautiful combination of earthy hops and rye spiciness.
-Caramel also plays a part in this beer, though discreetly.
-Yeast and rye characters were ably balanced.

Cask at C’est What. Deep ruddy amber pour. The aroma is quite light
with a sort of woody hoppiness. Actually quite hoppy with a little bit of a spiciness underlying it. Nothing at all like I was expecting. Medium bodied and hoppy with just a touch of fruitiness as well. It’s more of an APA
than a roggenbier - but maybe that’s what they were going for. Moderate hop aroma though the bitterness is significant. Strange.
