I hate to rate a Bosco’s beer this low but there was little their to enjoy. Aside from the initial sweetish flavor, it basically fell flat. Maybe my palate is not sophisticated enough to appreciate this ale. charcot25 (181) - Cordova, Tennessee, USA - JUN 28, 2007
On draft in Memphis. Pale gold with virtually no head. No aroma that I could detect except for a faint bready malt note. Taste is sweet with a subtle spiciness and slight citrusy hop flavor. A very subtle beer that could have benefited from some more hops in my humble opinion. illinismitty (2271) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - JUN 18, 2006
UPDATED: JUN 19, 2006 Tap at Nashville brewpub. Yes, this is a session beer, but a solid one. I give good session the scores they deserve. This one is way underated folks. Pours golden orange with a wisp of a white head. Fruity and spicy aroma, but faint. There are evenly balanced flavors of honey, rye, hops, malt. Each sip I pick up different things. Very clean, sweet, and mildy bitter finish. This is what session beers are about. Kevin agrees with me! beerguy101 (5360) - Newark, California, USA - MAY 28, 2006
Tasted on tap at Nashville Brewpub. This rye ale pours a light orange color. Small sized white foamy head. Aroma is fruity and sweet, some honey and some spiciness. A light to medium bodied ale. Malts are fruit and sweet. Hops are mild and slightly bitter. Crisp and clean. Very light tasting, Very smooth tasting. Some honey flavors, not very sweet and a touch of rye spiciness. Mouthfeel is full. Finish is crisp and dry. Aftertaste is slightly sweet.

The body was hazy light gold with no head. The aroma was honey with flowers and soem cherries. There was some iced tea taste with caramel. The taste is a little light for me. Kevin (2199) - Montana, USA - MAY 22, 2006
Tap. Cloude4d bright yellow. Nice white head. Sweet and lemony, yep, that sums this up both aroma and taste. Honey is there and it is good. Lemon dry finish a bit of white bread with the nice rye spice and sweetness. Damn I drank this one fast and I want another.

(On tap) Memphis. Pale amber with a small, off-white head. Distinct, soft honey aroma. Rather light body with mellow accents of malt and a vague underlying sweetness. A very smooth and accessible beer with a subdued bitterness. 280306 desurfer (1302) - Melbourne, Florida, USA - AUG 22, 2005
Nice amber body with good lacing. Light, wheaty aroma. Bitter rye flavor with peppery hops, a touch of honey sweetness. Bitter, dry finish. Tasty. Kinz (3786) - Glen Allen, Virginia, USA - AUG 18, 2005
From brewpub sampler. Medium hazy gold, little head, which is strange in a rye. Again, no aroma. Little flavor as well. Sweet, maybe some bubblegum? Odd.
