Tap at Parkier Pie, West Glover, VT. Pours copper with a nice head with good retention and lacing. Not much notes about the aroma, lets just say it wasn’t offensive. Taste is of spicy rye (black pepper?) with medium bitterness. Hoppy but not really. Carbonation is high, maybe too much even. Good but not something I would seek out again. tom10101 (6084) - Quebec, CANADA - SEP 28, 2013
On tap@ Parker Pie. Golden with a small white head and some lacing. Aroma is mild with some spices with herbal and greenish notes along with citrus and caramel. Taste is also milt and very similar to the aroma... peppery. Light to moderate bitterness. Medium body. Good carbonation. Slightly dry finish. Not bad, but nothing to see here.

22oz bomber pours a light amber color with a medium white head that leaves good lacing. smells of rye, citrus and honey. Tastes of all the same things in the smell with a slight bitterness and honey sweetness in the back end. Mouthfeel is medium bodied and chewy with great carbonation and light finish. This is one of the best summer seasonal beers I had this year. One of my favorites from Oakshire. The rye is very noticable and works well. Looking forward to next summer already.

Draft. Pouts orange amber with a thin white head. Rye malts, light sweetness, hints of fruit and honey, and light flowery hops in the finish. Not bad. romulusnr (16) - Washington, USA - SEP 10, 2013
Lofty, solid beige head. Honey golden color. Noble, tangy aroma. Taste is on the hoppy side, much like common Northwest pale ales, with nuances of oakiness and subtle rough grains. Mouthfeel is bright and lively at first, settling down to thinner, mostly hoppy afterbite. Slipstream (2626) - USA - SEP 2, 2013
Very fine, sweet rye pale ale. Strong bread flavor plus a dash of brine. Good stuff, and it was interesting to come across it in a Vermont bottle shop. nealblind (1865) - Seattle, Alabama, USA - AUG 17, 2013
Hazy amber pour big head. Aroma of hoppy funk burnt plastic. Tastes of spicy grain, acid, and car exhuast. Skippp. douglas88 (9182) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JUL 24, 2013
Bomber. Pours a mostly clear copper color with a large white head. A light nose of honey and bug grains. Mellow, rye spiciness, fruity hops, a bit of caramel. Nice.
