My bottle [660ml] shared with HogTownHarry, garthicus, jerc, mabel & GregClow. Pours a deep golden-amber with a small semi-lasting off-white head. Aroma has a hint of rye, some light hops, citrus fruit and bready notes -- I like it. Flavour of malt, rye bread and light floral hops. Average to medium bodied. Good stuff.

3.2
HogTownHarry (7467) - Toronto (Harbourfront), CANADA - JAN 13, 2010
Bottle ( 650ml ). Shared by blankboy with me, garthicus, gregclow, jerc and mabel. Slightly hazy bright orange-amber, smallish mottled frothy/creamy beige head. Leafy, slightly sweet aroma, floral and somehow reminiscent of crushed garden vegetable leaves. Taste is nice - dry, pungent, not as sweet, only a hint of rye cereal .... still a weird vegetable pungency in the finish. Light body, strong carbonation, light malt body but a fairly long floral bitter finish. Odd, not bad.

Found some old rating notes from TapNY 2013 that somehow never got entered. (I’m keeping this a little shorter than my normal rating style to help catch-up my backlog a little faster.)
This was a solid example of the style. A nice mix of earthy hops and rye bread/spice gives this one a pretty good flavor. The spice balances the hoppiness nicely and keeps the flavor balanced overall. It has a medium body with a lengthy finish.
