3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a cloudy amber color with a thin light brown head. Solid aroma of resinous hops, toasted malt, caramel and rye. Very good flavor of toasted malt, caramel, rye and resinous hops. The body is medium with an oily texture and moderate carbonation. I didn’t expect much, from a rye ESB, but this is very well made and definitely enjoyable.

Hazy, this has a little earthy, toasty character that has quite a bit of rye. That part I like but it’s a bit yeasty. fiulijn (20491) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 28, 2017
Draught at Darby’s Gastown, VancouverFerris (15238) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 27, 2017
Hazy dark amber color, creamy head. When you manage to punch so much rye character in a beer, you are doing something good; bready and grainy, with that nice earthy character of good Bitters.
Very good, original, very well made.
