This amber colored ale is brewed with a significant portion of rye malt and spiced with caraway seeds. A bready malt center with a dry spicy finish. Pairs nicely with the most “sensual of the salt cured meats - pastrami”

jeremytoni (3082) - Swedesboro, New Jersey, USA - APR 7, 2013
From the tap poured an amber color with a fair amount of head. Hoppy malty flavor with a quick finish.

Ferris (16295) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 12, 2015
Draft - Caramel and light icy rye. Clear Amber with a rich beige head. Spicy caraway and caramel. Nice and the caraway adds a nice flavor.

alobar (3879) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 12, 2013
Pours a clear copper color with a creamy head that vanishes quickly. Aroma of bread, caraway seed, fruit, spice, and hint of hops. Bread flavor with fruit, caraway seed, spice, and caramel. Very nice beer.

kramer (6682) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 17, 2012
Tap, Lancaster location, backlog. Pours a clear copper body with a small off-white head that faded fairly quickly. The nose is really big on the caraway and and the rye malt with some light caramel and toasted malt notes. The flavor is a little heavy on the caraway, but I must admit it is like drinking a glass of rye bread. I like the prominent rye spiciness that outshines the caramel malt. Medium bodied with moderate fizzy carbonation, lingering spicy finish. Not bad, a bit heavy with the spicing, but I guess that’s what they were shooting for. I could just do with a bit less caraway.

anders37 (26878) - Malmö, SWEDEN - JUL 24, 2011
Draft @ the brewpub. Pours a slightly hazy amber color with a small off-white head. Has a fruity malty caramel aroma. Fruity malty weak spicy caramel flavor. Has a sweetish malty caramel finish.

MrChopin (4304) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - MAY 30, 2011
On tap at lancaster. Transparent orange-amber, thin bubbled white head gone quick with little lace. Nose of bubblegum, watery earth and caramel. Flavor is grainy, light celery, honey, and a thin, dry, paper-like bitterness. Pumpernickel emerges with warmth and lingers through the finish.

DocLock (10970) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 14, 2010
Growler following a sample and Mug Club serving 12-Mar-2010. This is the roggenbier aged with caraway seeds. Pours very turbid and very ruddy Carolina mud color with 2-finger clingy off-white head. Looks a bit like a smacked ass, but has that look where you now it is going to be complex and very good. The nose is great...complex bready malt, caraway seed, spicy, some fruit, hops, and a bit of what I call a "barleywine aroma". The flavor is like rye bread with caraway seeds thrown in a blender wth some pumpernickel. Solid hefty palate heft, very bready and malty, with backup hops, some sweetness, and a crisp finish. The caraway works very well here, and this one is very complex. Another one I growlered, and am very glad to have 5 pints of left tomorrow prior to the midnight God of War 3 release for PS3.. Yeah man!

Miver (609) - Silver Spring, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 8, 2010
Tap at Lancaster Iron Hill. Poured hazy amber in color with a medium sized off white head. Aroma of rye malts, caramel, and bread. Tastes of some cereal, rye bread, light citrus hops. I can really get the spicy notes from the caraway seeds from this and I really quite like it.

KornDogg (570) - Lancaster, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 18, 2010
On Tap at IH Lancaster. Light rye and citrus aroma. Golden body with a thin head. Flavor has much more rye then others I’ve tried and is well balanced with citrus and spices. Light citrus finish with a bitter aftertaste
