3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Beer-judging sized sampler glass. Nice amber ale color under a thin head. Lightly malted and hopped, but it leaves a good malty aftertaste (or is that the Wing Nut still in my glass talking?). Pretty good standard football-wachtin' beer.
Ruby pour and cloudy. Thin head with a little lace. Aroma is roasty. Taste is full of bread and toast. Some light fruit notes. Very easy to drink, but kind of watery. jmagnus87 (3302) - Rockford, Illinois, USA - FEB 22, 2014
Draft at piece. From notes. Pours brown with a half finger of white head. Aroma of bread and grains with a slight hint of hops. Taste follows suit. Very good. tmoreau (4734) - Lombard, Illinois, USA - FEB 16, 2014
On tap at the brewery bar, and dispensed to a nonic pint glass, showing a clear, brownish amber color, with a modest layer of diminishing, soft white head foam, and some ribbony cling to the lacing. The nose was smooth, lightly toasted malt aroma, with a hint of caramel, and soft fruitiness. Light to medium bodied, with good carbonation, the flavor added low, earthy hop bitterness, and malt presence that tilted the balance in it’s favor. A decently sessionable brew. shigadeyo (3818) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - AUG 1, 2013

7/27/2010: Piece Worriyn’ Ale... Aroma: Toasted malts and bread brust. Appearance: Amber-colored; chill haze; whispy off-white crown. Flavor: Malty syrup/hard candy; earthy, floral bitterness in the finish; seems a bit weak and thin. Palate: Medium to medium-full body; but feels soft, yet big. Confusin, I know... Overall: Just okay.
Draught (5% ABV) at Piece in Chicago. Rating #85 for this beer.
Tap - small foamy head, very dark brown color, roasted malt aroma and
flavor, mild hop bitterness

ON draft at brewpub, poured a murky brown color, aromas of light toast, bread, earth, and some malt. Flavors are the same, light hops on the back end, ok beer overall. deyholla (12582) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - APR 14, 2012
Bottle. Pours a hazy brown with a tan head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has a good amount of bread and grain with a hint of earthy hops. Flavor has notes of grain and bread with a bit of backing earthy hops. Newk (299) - - FEB 6, 2012
Poured on tap at piece into a pint glass. Pours a nice dark brown color
Good malty aromas of caramel and toffee. lacking some depth and complexity in the aromas
medium bodied with a good feel and flavors of caramel, toffee and some malt flavors
This was a very drinkable beer, but lacking some real complexity and depth to it. A bit singular in both the aromas and flavors, but a good beer nonetheless JAF737300 (1291) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - AUG 29, 2011
POurs dark amber with a light head. Notes of toffee and roasted malts show on the nose and deeper and more complex within the palate. The roasted grains really drive a fun nuance of rye and bread that come over and offer a smooth finish. Thorpe429 (5122) - , Illinois, USA - APR 13, 2011
Reviewed from notes.
Pours a moderate amber copper color with a light head and some lacing. The nose is light citrus and spice with a bit of caramel. Taste is similar with slight hops and rye. A good bit of spice with a light caramel and fruit backbone. Good feel and drinks quite well; a nice rye beer.
Serving type: on-tap
