Sampled last night on 8/11/14. Bottle chilled down to 36 degrees F in my beer cooler and poured into a tulip glass.

Pours a pretty reddish-brown in color with a almost a one-finger foamy off-white head. Some spotty lacing is seen which each sip. Perfect carbonation. Lots going on with the aroma and what I can pick out is malts, dark fruit (cherry?) with some spice. Even more going on with the taste with caramel, barley with even a light hint of nuts in the mix. Medium bodied. Just a slight bitter finish. Overall, it was just OK.

Poured from a longneck into a shaker pint. A moderate pour produces a good billowy tan head that stick around for a little while, then dissipates into a solid ring with strands and islets of foam. The beer is a yellowish and red amber-brown with moderate carbonation.

A good hint of cherry is present in the aroma. The flavor is of bready malts (rye bread-yes), with some spicy, molasses-like flavors and a slightly tangy fruitiness. Medium bodied, tingly mouthfeel with lingering earthy bitterness and a little bit of that cherry again.

This beer is quite flavorful. It was not quite what I expected, with the dark color, medium body and complex flavor. Most other rye beers I've tried to date (not many, and all American) tend to be lighter in body, and often with more carbonation. One I tried at a brewery in Wyoming was light bodied and insanely carbonated. Perhaps the brewery is striving for a traditional Roggenbier? Purchased as part of a variety six pack for about $8.50.

3.11/5  rDev -9.9%

Appearance (3.00) : Small off-white head, red-amber almost cherry-brown body.

Smell (3.00) : Very clear notes of barley and a sweet nuttiness, I'm thinking almonds and sunflower?

Taste (3.25) : Caramel malts with barley.

Mouthfeel (3.00) : Not sure how I felt about the carbonation, but overall a very clean, refreshing feel.

Overall (3.00): A very okay beer, and an especially good one for the price, in my opinion.
