This was pretty solid, but also kind of average. Very creamy and smooth for a rye beer, I expected more robust spiciness. Goes down easy though to the point where I wouldnt mind having a few of these. hockey9930 (310) - - DEC 4, 2012
Pours a medium brown with a lingering tan head. Grassy and a bit yeasty aroma. A bit of a yeasty and grass flavor as well with a slightly bitter finish. Medium bodied and thin palate. 1010 (309) - Dublin, Ohio, USA - MAR 28, 2010
pours an amber color with nice white head. A good solid beer that taste a little fruity, but not overpoweringly so.
12 oz. bottle Newk (299) - - JAN 9, 2012
poured from a bottle into a pint glass. Pours a dark brown color with a 1" head
very grain driven nose. Crackers and rye grains along with roasted malts, chocolate and some toffee as well
medium bodied, but lacking a bit in the flavor department. Mostly roasted malts, some coffee and grains. Very good smooth feel though. It doesn’t drop off at any point
A very good and drinkable beer. Tasty, but seems to lack a slight bit for me BrianHagmeier (299) - Coralville, Iowa, USA - FEB 18, 2010
I really enjoy a beer thats taste is as the aroma advertised. The flavors unfold in layers starting with malt then caramel changing into a mild coffee and rye then hops finish quick and exciting.

Draft. Creay head that had nice retention, off white/tan. Nice rasion aroma with a slight malt backing. Very soft medium body beer. Malt forward, slight malt sweetness with a hint of caramel. Excellent beer. Nice mild winter seasonal. slitcher (273) - Freeport, Illinois, USA - DEC 26, 2009
Pours an amber brown with a thick off-white head. Aromas of rye bread and caramel. Spicy flavor up front from the rye with a long dry finish. A very nice sesion ale. bnielsen13 (265) - Richfield, Minnesota, USA - JAN 30, 2013
Reddish orange in color with a tan head. Chocolate, toffee, spicy rye aroma. Carmel, bready, spicy flavor. Okay beer. bpr77 (264) - Kansas City, Missouri, USA - DEC 23, 2011
Pours dark brown. White head. Aroma of caramel, malt, vanilla. Toffee flavor and caramel. Mild brown ale flavors. Medium body. Good solid beer Claves77 (260) - Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 3, 2013
Mild malt smell, dark body translucent to the light, lacking something in taste. Bland smooth flavor but lacking body. Overall a good winter offering that isn’t too spiced.
