On tap at Piece Brewery, Chicago.

Appearance is dark yellow, almost brown. Smell is very malty and caramely. Taste is very sweet and biscuity. Not a bad session beer. Overall I'd recommend this beer, though I prefer the stout and hefe from this brewery.

Served in a shaker pint glass at the brewpub.

Rockin' my way through the Piece oeuvre (or, at least, what's on tap this day). This selection pours a mostly clear russet-sienna topped by a finger of wan off-white foam. The nose comprises mild toffee, oak, earthy greens, and a hint of green apple skin way the hell in the background there. The taste brings in more of the same, with some more oak, a touch of both coffee and tea, and a bit more earthiness in everything involved. The body is a light medium, with a light moderate carbonation and a fluid feel. Overall, a nice little rye ale, one that makes sure the rye doesn't dominate the proceedings (though it would have been nice to have a bit more spice in there...).

No worryin' here. This piece beer quills the palate as comfortably as putting on those favorite jeans. Masterfully balanced and flavored for high rate of enjoyment, this beer accompanies a wide array of food pairings and is characterful enough to stand on its own.

Pouring an almost-clear light copper color, the amber highlights casts quite an aspiring glow. Capped with an off-white froth, the beer shows solid retention and lace without overselling it.

Caramel and citrus play a harmonic tune to the olfactory senses with moderate malt richness pinned against notes of grapefruit and orange peel. Complementary notes of earthy grasses, spicy grain, estery fruits, and light butterscotch promise the notion that complex flavors reveal with each return to the glass.

Skillfully balanced, the beer seems inspired from stronger English bitters as the rich caramel sweetness hinges on toffee and serves as the introduction of tangerines for a rounded marmalade character. Spicy and broadly earthen rye emerges from the sweetness with just enough grainy bite to bridge into citrusy and earthy hops- white grapefruit, fresh cut grass, zested oranges, and shaven pine all work to balance the beer without overriding the firm malt base.

The beer's medium body is aided with ample carbonation to give the sweetness a lift from the mouth and providing a lightly expansive fullness to its weight. Lightening considerably at mid palate, the carbonation quickly dissipates and allows for fleeting malt, spicy grain, hop resins, and light woody dryness to crispen the beer at finish.

It's one of those beers that you mean to reflect upon and assess- concentrating on its taste, texture, and impressions. But before you know it you have an empty glass in front of you, assisted by good conversation and enjoyment of the friendly brewpub. So the only thing worryin' about is getting another.

Worryin' is a nice Rye. The rye is not prounounced, overly-spicy, or over-the-top. It is subtle as the beers and very refreshing. On a hot summer day this was ambery-brown with a little head. it was thirst-quenching without being watery or too light. I tried this with other samplers at the brewery.

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

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.

From the notebook, June 2009....
On tap at the brewery.

Copper topped with a off-white head. Sweet bread-like malts balanced balanced by a mild hops. Maybe a little of caramel.

Interesting enough to keep it from getting boring, but not so interesting to get tiresome after a few. This would make a great session beer.

Paired up nicely with a slice of the house za.

I had this on tap into a tasting glass at Piece. The beer is dark gold with an orange tint. The aroma is a typical esb with light carmelish generic hops. Taste is light caramel with alcohol and hops as well. Its really watery to drink and in general just pretty boring.

on tap at the brewpub in Chicago. pours a deep copper color with a half finger of eggshell colored head that has mild retention and leaves no lacings.

aroma is of light caramel malts and a touch of carmelized sugar. some dark fruit notes are in the background, along with a very light spice from the rye.

taste is of light caramel malts and a very light nutty character in the background. reminiscent of a nut brown with a semi-dry finish.

mouthfeel is medium bodied with a malty texture and a sticky aftertaste.

drinkability is decent. not much rye comes through in the end, but overall it still works well as a brown-esque ale.
