COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
From a true "city of neighborhoods" we offer our take on a "biere de mars, " or a ruddy farmhouse ale. In true Philadelphia fashion, European and American ingredients are melded into a complex, ruby ale with flavors of toasted malt and rye. It's the perfect accompaniment for some quality time enjoyed in the backyard (or on the front stoop) of your urban farmhouse.

A good (and very different) rye beer. Aroma was good. A weird ketchup smell with roasted malt and pickles? I know sounds bad, but it wasn’t. Pour was a nice deep dark amber with a one finger off white head. Taste was very different. I don’t know what rye tastes like, but since I can’t pick out the predominant flavor in this beer, I’m assuming it’s rye. It was a weird tart flavor almost like dill with toasted malt and an acidic aftertaste. Very different but good.

The flavor is spicy with touches of rye and cinnamon. Has a light body. The texture is thicker than water. Has a good finish with a decent aftertaste. This is tasty. Has a touch of sweetness to it.

Pours red-amber with a white head. Sweet aroma with a slight spice note (rye?) underneath. Smooth on the tongue with a slight lingering bite. Malty sweet flavor with a rye-spice note. Very "drinkable".

Shockingly good. A deep rusted red, perfectly clear ale with a strong aroma of toffee and coffee. The flavor is deep but not complex, large amounts of hops (cascade?) promise bitterness that is absent but not missed, in this case. This is followed by a dirty earthiness. Terrific and filthy. I wish I had access to more!

Bottle. Quite interesting. Poured dark copper with some sediment and moderate off-white head. Aroma was somewhat malty but most noticeably spicy, clearly a hint of belgian yeast but also cinnamon and ginger. Flavor was similar although the yeast is not overpowering it does emphasize the spiciness inherent to the malt which balances it nicely. A portion of rye or wheat malt may even be present as there was a crisp note to it. Not quite delicate but not cloying either. I’m curious to know what a biere de mars has to do with our rowhouses though.

Bottle. Pours copper with a thin off white head. Sweet malty aroma with a hint of fruit. The flavor has toasty malt, a spicy rye hint, light sweetness and a dash of floral hops. Nice.
