foyle (424) - Wyoming, USA - SEP 2, 2013
Appearance: pours a thin 1/2" head that recedes rapidly. Some lacing on the glass. Color is a somewhat cloudy gold. Moderate carbonation bubbles streaming. Aroma: rye bread, yeast rolls, a slight floral presence also. Mouthfeel: light, watery, fairly refreshing. Somewhat dry finish. Flavor: combination of tangy, peppery rye, some citrus and floral hop flavor, sweet toasted malts, the honey is detectable but not overwhelming.

They overdid the honey here like your girlfriend when she wants something from you. Golden amber pour with decent head and lacing. Sweet finish with a little bitter malt. Bottle.

hauxe (896) - Butzbach, Hesse, GERMANY - JUL 20, 2017
Pours gold from the bottle with a white, fluffy head. Light floral notes on an otherwise nondescript vaguely malty aroma. Taste is mildly sweet. Finish is lightly sweet, crisp. No hint of rye anywhere. Can be described as boring with a big B.

cmacklin (1273) - Lethbridge, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 8, 2017
On tap. Pours a clear yellow with a small, frothy, long lasting, white head that laces. Sweet, faint aroma of wheat malt and honey. Mild, sweet aroma of pale malt, wheat, honey and a hint of fruit with a dry finish. Light body with a watery texture and soft carbonation. Bland and boring.

chinchill (5226) - South Carolina, USA - JUN 23, 2017
12 oz bottle in Yellowstone NP, bottled April 2017. Clear amber body with an excellent white head that has admirable retention. Aroma: caramel, biscuits and light hops. Flavor: baked bread, caramel and light hops. A bit more sweet than it is bitter. Rye is MIA. Cranny smooth, medium-light body with medium carbonation.

smroush (297) - Michigan, USA - OCT 8, 2016
Mild malt, mild hops, a bit of bread and a mild touch of raspberries. Color is light yellow with a touch of orange; small off-white head. Taste is crisp and dry with mild bitterness. Light bodied; average carbonation; short somewhat watery finish. Overall pretty so so, but the light touch of raspberries works pretty well.

12 oz. bottle at the Sun Room Bar at the Lake Hotel in Yellowstone. Pours a light, hazy, brownish orange color, with a small, fizzy, tan head. The aroma is a touch of rye spice under a general character of clover honey. There are notes of lemon and berries, with some cloves. Honey sweetness, with very little bitterness, but a nice rye spice that gives in a nice kick. Medium body, smooth feel with a light bite in the finish. This is hardly the best rye beer I’ve had, and it is too sweet, but it works surprisingly well, in my opinion. Subtle, drinkable, and fun.

Pours a light amber from a bottle. Bit o’ honey aroma, slightly sweet flavor. Where’s the rye? Okay beer.

bartzluke (598) - Oklahoma, USA - AUG 11, 2015
12 oz pour from tap into a shaker pint a bar in Bozeman. Clear, golden, light carbonation, light head. Fairly creamy medium body. Definitely sweet-- honey and a bit of a berry taste. A hint of malts and bitterness as well, but resoundingly a sweet beer. Probably best for a hot summer day for dessert.

bnokk (539) - Lee, Massachusetts, USA - JUL 24, 2015
APPEARANCE ? dark golden color, fairly turbid probably owing to the rye in the mash bill. NOSE ? light bit of malt comes through. Don?t smell the rye contribution, and does not smell overly sweet from malt or the honey. FLAVOR ? overall pretty bland. Nothing sticks out in terms of flavors. Very light malt flavor, I may get a bit of rye. I don?t feel much from the honey.
