Poured this beer from the 16oz can. It has a light brown color body with a thick head. The aroma is spicy of rye and with a slight hop aroma. The taste has a rye forward flavor with a pine hop taste on the back of the tongue. Mouthfeel is smooth and overall a very tasty beer.

16 oz can served in a nonic pint.

Appearance: Dark honey color, nice lingering white foam. Attractive.

Aroma: Sadly, very little.

Taste: Orange marmalade, floral hops, a healthy amount of bitterness, but well-balanced. Complex and interesting throughout. Strong rye flavor (at least I think that's what rye tastes like).

Mouthfeel: Smooth, highly drinkable.

Overall: Worth picking up if you spot it.

16 oz. can poured into a Burley Oak snifter (Best by 5/21/14, just missed that)

A: Muddy brown color that has no lacing or head to speak of.

S: Smells like a pale ale with another flavor that must be the rye.

T: Decent enough but pretty plain for me, but I will chalk that up to the age. The rye comes out a bit more as it warms up. Subdued flavors that I will chalk up to the age also.

M: Watery with just a bit of carbonation to give it some texture.

O: Glad I got to try this, but it is most likely a shade of its former self. Not much flavor and barely any rye, which is usually quite a strong flavor.
