4oz draft sample - Aroma is mild and malty. Flavor is chewy rye, pale malts, straw and a touch of hops. Palate is chewy and clean. Tasty but not flavorful enough for me. MIBRomeo (2579) - Wisconsin, USA - AUG 11, 2009

Tap at Maduro’s. Pours to a hazy golden body with a frothy white head. Hoppy rye bread with almost a hefeweizen yeast profile but w/o the cloves. A good beer but doesn’t hold up to the heavier sessions. xnoxhatex (1305) - Grand Rapids/Chicago, Michigan, USA - JUL 29, 2009
On tap at the eccentric cafe. Almost clear golden with small white head. Really malty and spicey aroma with rich malt. Flavor is spicey, off-dry malt, nice bitterness and hop presence in general. Medium creamy. Really nice and rich and dry at the same time. BBB63 (6567) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - JUL 26, 2009
UPDATED: FEB 15, 2013 Rerate from Bottle and served in Bells Tulip : Golden hue but lots of floaties which was unexpected. The aroma has notes of grapefruit, resiny and herbal hops esters along with some rye bread and biscuit. The taste is moderately juicy, faintly dank ad finishes with lots of rye notes. This is so much better than I remembered. (7/2/7/4/14)

Initial Rating: Tap at Eccentric: Clean golden hue with a small fading head and minimal lace. The aroma have a light rye bread vapour, grassy hops, and a touch of honey. The taste is rather bland, mild sweet malts and honey with a quick dash of rye twang. The finish does support some herbal and grassy hops. The mouth feel is lively and crisp, refreshing but tad thin. Okay summer brew. (6/3/5/4/12)
On tap at Eccentric Cafe. Poured clear, bright golden with a short cap of white head. The aroma picked up pale and bready malts on the crisp fore with dry rye spicage accenting.. soft overall and well-balanced. The flavor had a bready base that supported grassy and very light citrus bitterness.. spicy rye really picked up on the back-end. Crisp and refreshing on the palate with fine usage of the rye.. lighter-bodied.. well-done! Taverner (1103) - San Ramon, California, USA - MAY 21, 2009
Draft at Eccentric Cafe. Not an IPA and not an APA. What is it then? Specialty grain is like saying "Other." Pours a golden clear light. Flavor is full of grassy hoppage, and ends on a dry finish. Tmoney99 (15228) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - APR 24, 2009
Draft at Eccentric Cafe.
Poured clear copper color with an average frothy white head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate citrus, rye and wheat aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture and flat carbonation. Medium bittersweet flavor with a medium bittersweet finish of moderate duration.
The beer is a good drinkable brew. coyotehunter (698) - , Michigan, USA - JAN 7, 2009
On tap Eccentric Cafe . Good aroma
of white grapes, light rye and sweet malt. Ultra clear pale yellow. Thin to no head, but what head there is laces well. Flavor is that of honey, white grape juice, light citrus fruit and malt.Mouthfeel is a bit syrupy and has a sweet dry finish. Overall its pretty good. Better than I expected as far as a rye goes. esjaygee (3902) - Oak Creek, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 13, 2008
On tap at the Eccentric Café. Deep golden yellow with a thin white head. Aroma of rye with some sweet malt behind. Taste of heavy rye with some sweet malts behind it, but mostly just rye. Aftertaste is like I just at a piece of fresh rye bread, though since it was a bit dry, I’d like to add a little butter… Every now and again these off grain beers work, and this one is close. Just too much rye.
