Bright orangey-red colour. Mild toasty, caramelly aroma. Toasty caramel taste, lots of rye character and chewy breadcrust. Decent. jcwattsrugger (12507) - Florida and, New Jersey, USA - AUG 21, 2008

Copper-colored, even white head. Rich rye malt nose, fruit. Really nice, not chewy at all surprisingly. Nice malt. glkaiser (1214) - Seattle, Washington, USA - AUG 18, 2008
Clear copper with medium head. Caramel sweet aroma followed by a light mix of caramel and bready malts with a solid bitterness. Easy drinking with a hint of fruit and a smooth finish. Enjoyable. daknole (11049) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - AUG 15, 2008
On tap at Piecasso in stowe, VT. Nice damn beer. Orange-amber pour wtih a smallish head. Aromas are malty and grainy(shocker, i know) Flavor is sweet malty, and the rye really adds a cool flavor. I get some hops and some spice. Well crafted.

Bottle courtesy of Beershine and Oakes. Pours reddish amber with off white head. Mostly bread in the aroma. Rye comes through slightly in the flavor. Medium body with average carbonation. Overall a decent brew. darkguardian (733) - Florida, USA - AUG 10, 2008
22 oz bottle from Oakes. A bit underated. Nose is alot of pleasant rice and grain aromas. Nice burnished orange color. Taste is similar to the smell, very smooth and mellow, seems to be a bit of spice on this, maybe cinammon and anise. But its light. This is a very smooth easy drinking mild ale. mgumby10 (1856) - Jupiter, Florida, USA - AUG 10, 2008
Courtesy Oakes and Beershine. POurs a clear, copper amber, with a small off white head. Nice little sweet caramel malt nose, some dark fruit, and grain as well. The flavor is fairly mild, a little sweet cinnamon, subtle hops, soft carbonation, and light citrus all formulate this simple beer’s identity. Real easy drinking, with decent flavor. Decent little amber. Beerlando (3342) - Orlando, Florida, USA - AUG 10, 2008
Courtesy Oakes and Beershine. Pours a clear, dark auburn gold color. A small, foamy, off-white head leaves jagged, skinny lines of lacing on the glass. The aroma shows rye and cereal grains, caramel, and a bouquet of spicy, floral hops. There’s an almost perfume-like quality to the nose. Flavors show a caramel malt background, with rye grains again coming through, and floral hops providing balancing bitterness. Medium body, balanced carbonation. Overall, this is a decent brew, but I’d like to see the rye assert itself a bit more as a differentiating characteristic. As it stands, this feels just like a fairly boring, slightly hoppy amber. jimhilt (2614) - Bow, New Hampshire, USA - AUG 5, 2008
Pours a three finger cream head that fades slowly to a thin layer, leaving some lace. More or less clear red/amber color. Medium carbonation and medium bodied. Balanced nose. Flavor is almost sweet caramel but then a late watery bitterness. $5.99 for a 22oz bottle from Capital Convenience Concord, NH.
