(Draught) Pours a clear yellow body with a small white head. Aroma of herbs, grass, grain, earth, bread, and citrus. Flavor of grain, citrus, rye, honey, and caramel.

"The description of this beer was intriguing. It was ok, but really didn’t live up to expectations. A good food beer, but there’s not enough to really catch my interest as a stand-alone. Light in color and body, and surprisingly light on the hops given the name. The slight spice from the rye and a light bready malt backbone put this just over average, but barely."

Bottle. Orange/lemon and barley malt aroma. Medium yellow with moderate head. Sweet orange malt and lightly bitter orange peel flavor. Nice beer but not very bock-like though.

3.4
daknole (11402) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - APR 28, 2013
Deep gold pour, white head. An interesting take on a spicy hopped beer and some malty lager. The rye is a nice addition, godd bodied and pretty easy to drink.

3.2
BVery (11361) - Plymouth, Minnesota, USA - MAR 22, 2013
UPDATED: JAN 1, 2014 Bottle. Light orange pour with a small white head. Nice spicy rye element. Good hop bite. Not a ton of depth, but good.

3.2
cubs (10714) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - MAR 6, 2013
Bottle @ home picked up at Aggie Liquor in Fort Collins. Pours a clear, dark golden appearance with a white head that doesn’t have the best retention. Fairly earthy, floral hoppy aroma with a bit of spice and grains. The rye comes through with a fair amount of spiciness in the flavor. Fairly grainy, herbal, moderately fruity flavor with a dry, herbal, earthy finish. Ehhh ok. New Belgium just hasn’t been able to come through with a great lager yet, unfortunately.

3.6
marcus (10679) - Sacramento, California, USA - MAR 29, 2013
Bottle from Capitol Beer, Sacramento. Pours clear amber with a rich white head and a bready citrus aroma. There is an earthy malt flavor with a dry bitter finish. Refreshing.

onceblind (10572) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JUL 13, 2013
Clear golden with a thin foamy head. Nose is floral and herbal with nice perfumey hop tones. Flavor is biscuity and malty but with a huge herbal and leafy hop flavor and bitterness. Ends with toffee and herbal hops.

3.2
bb (9789) - Alamo, California, USA - MAR 20, 2013
Bottle. Golden beer with a whitish head. Mineral and light spice aroma with light grain. Mineral and bready malt flavor with light citrus. Medium bodied. Mineral and bready malts linger with citrus.
