10/25/12. 128oz growler from the brewery - my first from a year of free growlers! Hazy orange pour with a nice khaki head that sticks and laces plenty. I was told this just went on tap today, so it’s fresh, and I can tell in the aroma. There’s a really nice fresh hop aspect and a definite spice kick. The flavor is lightly bitter and hoppy, slightly fruit, with pine and citrus, and another definite rye spice kick. This is tasty and goes down too easy. I dig it!

UPDATED: NOV 3, 2012 Smells of orange and lemon zest. Clear brown appearance. earthyCitrus notes hit immediately upon tasting. Light on the palate, yet full flavored. Good beer, easily one of Bold Citys better beers

On tap at brewery, pours a hazy orange with a thick white head, the aroma has some citrus mixed in with a tad bit of heavy malt that kind of threw me off a little bit, the flavor has a decent hop front with some citrus in the finish as well, decent.

Pint on tap at the brewery taproom. Orange-amber beer with a white head. light malt and hop aroma. Flavor is dry pale ale with rye sharpness. Citric hop bitternes. I’m not really a fan of these rye beers and I don’t understand the current rye beer fad. This one is ok, maybe even good, but not great and not as good as the Magnum P. Rye.

decaturstevo (6244) - decatur, Tennessee, USA - SEP 18, 2011
Gold pour with a creamy white head and lace. A dry rye start with a medium maltiness and a decent citrus bitter. A slight medicine. Thin and fizzy but kinda tasty.

GT (10000) - San Diego, California, USA - AUG 15, 2011
Tap at The Independent (small beer bar in The Loft across the street from Kickbacks), Jax, FL. The pour is an unclear redder orange with a thick, creamy, off-white head. Very good retention. Layers of lace remain. Nose is practically non existent with no aromatic hops. Perhaps white bread and cracker malt. Taste is actually a bit sour up front then moving to quite the heavy body with lots of buttery oatmeal and English maltiness. Practically no hop character save for small English balancing hops. Palate is soapy and watery. Rye component is near impossible to distinguish. No prominent hoppiness/bitterness. Comes across as English golden ale.
