DocLock (10725) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 19, 2008
Draft sample followed by a Mug Club serving. Poured hazy dark straw with off-white head. Nose was rye malt, piney hops, some floral and peppery notes. Tastes fairly full-bodied, with a piney, crisp hop bill balanced by a bready rye malty flavor. Very smooth and enjoyable.

Tasted from Growler (filled at the Phoenixville location) thanks to TomDecapolis. Poured a deep and cloudy golden color with an averaged off white sized head. Aromas of rye, bread, citrus, and floral hops. Tastes of rye, citrus, pine, and some caramel. The rye was there and done nicely.

On tap at Pville location. Pours a hazy orange with golden notes and a medium creamy/bubbly head. Aroma if rye spiciness, cereal grains, lightly toasted malt, citrus notes, American hops and some caramel. Flavor of the same spicy rye notes, cereal grains, some orange, fresh hops and caramel. One of the more up front rye beers I have had. Well done.
