From Sourced in a bottle... Lovely mellow aroma woody with a hint of malt coming through. Hazy amber in colour and packed full of hops to taste. Light to medium body with a soft carbonation. Good finish and overall a great example of Red Rye. Idiosynkrasie (7711) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - AUG 4, 2013

33 cl bottle. Bottled on 04/2013. BBE 08/2013.richc (239) - Bolton, Greater Manchester, ENGLAND - JUL 6, 2013
Pours cloudy dark mahogany color with a medium sized head. Aroma of resiny hops, pine needles, caramel malts and mildly sweetish fruits. Flavor is very malty and bready, some dried fruits, resiny hops and hay also, rye and other grain notes on the dry finish. Dry malty palate, medium carbonation. Decent.
Pours a cloudy red with a thin head that lingers well. Rich malty aroma with caramel and candyfloss notes. Also a very subtle orange and lime like citrus note. Flavour is spicy with strong bitterness and a rye dryness slightly balanced by caramel notes. A pretty good beer but could do with more hop aroma and flavour.
