3.65/5 rDev -6.2%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5
A - Nice looking beer, pours a darker amber, quite clear with a full inch of off-white head. Fluffy head dissipates slightly but sticks around, heavy rings of lacing ring the glass.
S - The rye is quite apparent, comes in as some spiciness. Complimented well with the citrus, and bigger floral hop aroma coming through. Get a nice caramel background, malt is big in the overall profile.
T - Follows the nose pretty well, initial hit is the very floral hop taste, light tasting. The cleaner, somewhat spicy rye comes in here as well, distinct. Surprising was the big malts coming in, plenty of caramel sweetness, this beer is quite sweet overall.
M - A fairly plain mouthfeel, bit less then medium body and standard mid-carbonation.
O - I enjoyed the floral hops on this one, but to be honest the sweetness throws it off a bit as you continue working on the glass.
