12oz Bottle. The pour was a murky medium reddish brown with an average (1-2 finger) light cream colored pillowy head that had good retention and excellent sheeting of sticky lacing.
The aroma was of a dark bread malt, floral hops and a sweaty yeast with notes of caramel, citrus (grapefruit), rye and a mild sweet fruity ester.
The taste was a malty bitter-sweet with a hint of caramel from the onset, progressing into a bold hoppy citrus bitter with a touch of rye and a mild sweetness at the end. The flavor lasted an average time after the swallow with a slight citrus peel bitterness left lying on the taste buds.
Mouthfeel was right between light and medium in body with a dry and slightly oily texture and a medium carbonation.
Overall this brewer never seem to disappoint, this was a nice hoppy brew with a slight doughy sweetness and just the right touch of rye...
Heavy lacing with a medium foamy head. Mild grain aroma mixed with some citrus from hops. Toasted malt taste with mild hop finish

Draft at J’s. Pours a clear amber with a finger of foam that lingers. Not much nose on this one, maybe some faint berry, malt notes...touch of strawberry. Clean and crisp, light bread notes, some rye in there. Light, peppery finish. Simple but rock solid. randy1969 (70) - Marengo, Illinois, USA - MAY 13, 2017

Color is dark red/brown, foamy head. Taste is floral hops, some malt and very little rye. A tiny bit bitter, but very creamy and smooth. It’s good. nybol (2311) - DENMARK - SEP 2, 2016
En del chokoladesmag. Stor fyldig smag og en hel del maltet. Fin nydeøl som skal drikkes langsomt.
