Bottle, 08/16/2013. Pours dark amber, clear, thin fizzy white head fades within a minute or so to leave a thin ring of lacing around the glass. Aroma is toasted wheat, mild fruity yeast with thin caramel overtone, lightly spicy grass notes to finish. Taste is bread, moderately sweet, slight lemon and orange fruitiness with spicy rye tickling the tongue, dark bitter grassy finish. Medium light body, good carbonation and easy drinking, could definitely knock back a few of these. Pretty decent. arminjewell (9720) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - AUG 3, 2013
Pour out of 500 mL bottle, thanks Aaron! Slightly hazy orange pour with white head, aroma brought notes of sour white grape, lemon, biscuit, hints of oak, caramel, toffee, some slight spice, interesting, pretty true to style. Taste is a mix of sweet caramel, toffee, red fruits, nice oak, slight craker, hints of grass, spicy hops, hints of white grape, finishing sweet, dry, slightly bitter. Pretty well done, just not a fan on the style. j12601 (13099) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - JUL 28, 2013
Bottle that I took to Paul’s housewarming tasting. Pours a lightly hazed amber with a thin white head. Soft grain and a touch of spicy rye on the nose. Medium-bodied with some spicy rye and a touch of citrus. Long grain and toast on the finish. Faintly spicy, gentle rye. Tasty.

UPDATED: AUG 3, 2013 Bottle @ home via trades with lukaduke and Ernesto987. Thanks guys! Pours a bit hazy, reddish orange appearance with a tan head. Caramel, orange fruity, spicy rye, sweet candy aroma. Tangy orange candy, chewy grainy rye, spicy, bready, somewhat sweet flavor. Honestly, probably the first Jack’s Abby brew that I didn’t enjoy.

Bottle: Poured an amber color lager with a medium size foamy head with good retention and some lacing. Aroma of light caramel malt with light spicy rye notes with light rustic cereal notes. Taste is also a mix between some cereal notes with some light spicy rye notes and some chewy light caramel malt notes. Body is about average with good carbonation. Interesting experiment from a brewery that I would wish to know more about. StefanSD (2468) - Ouray, Colorado, USA - JUL 7, 2013
500 ml bottle from secret santa. Thanks. Pours a lightly hazy copper color with a small white head that soon fizzes away. The aroma is mild with spicy grains and a bit of rock candy. The taste is rather sweet with rock candy and breads followed by spicy grains and some white fruits. The palate is a tad on the thinner side and the carbonation is lively. Finishes medium in duration and dry. Overall: Decent and tasty. TheGent (657) - , Massachusetts, USA - JUN 30, 2013
a style i have tried little of from a brewery I keep loving more and more. Rusty amber color and a one finger head that retains. Smells of warm caramel and spice, almost like the spice you get off spiced hot wine drinks but much more subtle. There is a freshness to it, like just out the washing machine sheets. Taste brings forth a soft malt sweetness and a whisper of bitter. Clean palate. Barley any finish on it which makes me want to sip continiously.
