12 oz. stubby brown bottle. No freshness date.
Served in a 50cl Ittala mug.
It pours an orange-hued amber color with a solid 2" off-white head and some patchy and trailing lace.
The smell is resiny and citrusy hop forward. A smell of rye crackers roll in behind and lasts. A slight smell of tart fruit and alcohol lingers in the distance.
The flavors resemble the aromas. There is a little harsh/edgy dried rye taste which crosses into the hops profile, and as a result leaves a bit of a salty sensation at the top of the tongue. I think I taste a hint of rye whiskey, but maybe it's just the suggestion.
As a touch of honey-like sweetness emerges, it becomes very gulpable. It's best to have another Ruthless Rye ready.
