Clear brown beer, modest white head. Crisp palate, semi dry. Malty beer, slightly creamy but with a vague hint of smoke. Finishes softer but still dry. Fresh malty beer. Okay.

A solid offering, though I find it lacks that bit of "bite" that I like to get from a rye beer. Good mild beer as the name suggests.

Bottle. Head is initially average sized, frothy, light brown, mostly lasting. Body is dark amber to medium brown. Aroma is moderately malty (cookie, toasted grain), with notes of grape juice, cinnamon, dirt. Flavor is moderately to heavily sweet, lightly acidic, lightly to moderately bitter. Finish is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly acidic, moderately bitter, slightly unclean. Medium to full body, watery texture, lively carbonation, lightly alcoholic. Cheap and clunky smelling, kinda dump bucket-like. Somewhat dirty aftertaste as well. Not very enjoyable.

The aroma is grainy with light toffee, chcolate, paper, and resin hops. The appearance is brown with a foamy head. The taste is like the aroma with the addition of earth and spice. The palate is smooth from carbonation. Overall this beer tastes cheap and doesnt work very well for me but is drinkable.

FROTHINGSLOSH (7489) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 5, 2013
Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured an orange-brown color with a huge creamy tan head that lingered and left good lacing. The aroma was wood, nut and was fairly dry. The flavor was dry, woody, a bit roasty and nutty with a hint of smoke. Medium length dry wood, nut and smoke finish. Medium body. Eh.

thegreenrooster (4280) - St.louis, Missouri, USA - FEB 20, 2009
Pour is a murky looking brown with a average tan head. Aroma is some rye and grain but nothing really stands out. Flavor is again some rye and spice but overall kinda watery and bland. I didnt get a lot of what others got off this beer. A watery brown ale more or less.

RAYBOY01 (2012) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUL 30, 2009
On tap at Maple Tree Inn, Blue Island. Though sampled on tap, this winter seasonal was enjoyed in the last week of July, so certainly not at its freshest...Attractive deep coppery pour with light tan head that quickly disappeared. Very minimal aroma: cereal and light malt. The flavor was light spicy rye grain, toffee, and touches of very, very light noble hops. Mouthfeel was pretty thin, just this side of insubstantial.

Deep caramel color, off-white head. Aromas of roasted barley, malt, and prominent weedy hops. Warms without being too heavy. Pretty good, simple, well-balanced.
