bottle. Deep amber with small head. Medium caramel malt. Mild rye and light bitterness. Slight spice. Decent, but unexceptional.

Pours a brown ale with some red accents. Occassional foam as I agitate is light tan. Nose is spicy and malty. There are hints of cinnamon and some earthy hops, but mostly a simple bready nose. Taste carries a nice brown ale character accented with a rye ambience. Nicely spicy with a tone of brown ale - not mild ale. Medium bodied with a lighter carb and a nice forgettable finish. This beer is nothing out of the ordinary - which is exactly as it should be. Well executed.
Serving type: on-tap

I had this at Global Brew. Pours amber with a off white head. Taste burnt malt, Carmel. I thought this was so so. I would skip this down the road.

Pours amber with a nice head that gives way to solid lacing. Aroma is similar to flavor - a very good toffee flavor with only a hint of bitterness. I just wish this mild ale was classified correctly so I could get credit on ratebeer. sodakotakid (230) - Belle Fourche, South Dakota, USA - NOV 5, 2013
pours a medium brown with a good tan head. This beer is sweet and full of malts, there is a light bitter rye flavor. There is a nice caramel flavor also.

Bottle. This is not a beer I really got into. I am not a huge fan of rye brews though so give it a go. Beergeek23322 (2602) - Chester, Virginia, USA - SEP 9, 2013
From bottle. Amber color with a white head. Aromas of caramel, malt, spice, fruit. Caramel and spice flavors. Good winter beer. BOSSbrewer (2705) - Arkansas, USA - AUG 5, 2013
Decent beer but I don't like the style. Had on tap in KC. Originally rated with another app. Heathen (1500) - Wilmington, Delaware, USA - JUN 29, 2013
THOUGHTS: Tons of flavor. Very nice. A bit British.
TECHNICAL: Bottle. Poured a clear, dark reddish amber that was nearly brown in the glass (sort of like cola) with a huge, off-white head that diminished very slowly leaving excellent lacing. The aroma had moderate roasted, burnt, nutty and caramel malts; light chocolate; light hops; cola; and dark fruit. The initial flavor was moderately sweet and slightly bitter; while the finish was moderately sweet and lightly bitter. There was roasted malt, burnt malt, dark fruit, herbal hops, hints of chocolate, fruity yeast, dark bread, caramel malt and cola. The medium body was sort of dry with fizzy carbonation and a slightly astringent finish. Niko100 (2913) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUN 28, 2013
Dark amber/brown color; Medium creamy body; Aroma of caramel malt, dark fruit, & some floral hops; Flavor of slight sweet malt, caramel, some rye, dark fruit, and light hops; Overall, a little too mellow - but not bad.
